Great food and service. Their specialty is chicken fried steak which is hand-dipped so the breading is light. Gravy is delicious with real mashed potatoes. Fried okra was the best! Owners/operators are friendly and glad you dropped in. Their restaurant actually is the site of a former... read more

The outside will fool you, but the Italian food is very good ! This place is located on the north/east side of the downtown courthouse. You can bring your own cocktails to enjoy with your meal...worth a try when your in town.

The restaurant is no longer operating in Glen Rose Texas. The prices were to high for the locals to visit it regularly.

The service was ok. The food was not very good. Cramped quarters. Someone could do more with this. The history was interesting.

I can't say enough good things about this place food was best I have had in a resturant in sometime. The service was friendly and fast. I am sure on an extremely busy day your wait maybe a little long but I can promise it is worth it. For us this was not an issue. The menu is limited but... More

The chicken fried steak was as tender as a mother's love. Real potatoes and excellent fried okra. The service was very, very good. I was treated like a friend and not just a customer. I will be a customer from now on.
