Good food is very important to us when we travel. In particular, we like regional foods. We had perfectly cooked sirloins (see our review of Sheba's in Hope, AR for another good regional meal). Chef Tapia or Chefe as they call him is professionally trained and runs a happy kitchen with few weekday staff. When I tasted his steak flatbread... More

I've been here many times under old management and always had a delightful meal. However last night my wife, child, and I went and we ordered steaks and my child had the chicken strips. Our steaks were ordered medium (they came out medium rare and medium well) I was kinda stressed for time and didn't care to send them both... More

I do see your review and appreciate you letting me know. The only defense I have is I wish you would've told us while you were still there. My meat vendor will tell you because of the draught they can't guarantee each and every tenderloin we receive. We cut our own steaks and until they are cooked you have no... More

We were not sure what to expect with the rustic exterior, but found a nice, quiet interior and attentive servers. I tried one of the specials, the mahi mahi. The fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My husband had the prime rib which he said was tender and well seasoned. Our daughter had a steak which also tasted great. We... More

Thought we'd try out a new place we've never been to so decided on KJ's. Nice, clean decor and good service. Food is a little pricy but we enjoyed our country fried steak meals. Could have used a little more cream gravy. Will probably go back and try something else next time. I wanted to get the red snapper with... More

Thanks so much for your review. Glad you enjoyed your meal. We try to do specials everyday On the weekend we try to have some fresh fish and it does cost a little more. Our menu is fresh and with the rising cost of food we do the best we can. But with that being said we did sell completely... More

Wow! Our family went with a group of friends. The kids needed a place with hamburgers. I needed a place with healthy options and good wine! The environment gives off an upscale swanky feel, and then the food and service deliver the home run. I had the ahi ahi salad....amazing...quality and tasty...the fish is almost raw, so they have to... More

I've been there many times and have always enjoyed my meal and service. The prime rib is fantastic, great burgers, salads, and chicken. Their menu is just right. The beer and wine selection is good too. It is reasonably priced

This is a new item on their menu and I ordered it last week when I was in. The coating is light, the white meat was moist and juicy. When Chef Eli put that piece of tender breast on mashed potatoes and adds white gravy, I felt I was at home in Iowa.

Thank you for review. We are changing some menu items hopefully in the month of July. The chicken was a special and it was loved by all who made the choice to try it. Make sure you stay in touch we have great things coming your way. It just takes a little time to change things. We are very excited.... More

Went for the first time last week for our date night. The service was great, owners were very friendly and most importantly, the food was fantastic!! The Cajun shrimp is to die for and I had some if the best asparagus in my life! My husband had the steak and he was happy too! Will be back for sure.
