We had dinner here on Friday night after the restaurant was recommended by the desk clerk at the Hampton Inn. There were lots of cars in the parking lot - a good sign! Even though they were very busy there was no wait for our table. Our server was Katelyn and she was absolutely fantastic. She saw to our every need, keeping drinks served, dishes cleared, and took time to ask for information regarding a local landmark. We had fried mushrooms for an appetizer and they were yummy - not too much breading and a delicious dipping sauce. We both had steak. My husband's steak had onions and mushrooms in a brown whiskey sauce that was very good. My steak was a little disappointing as it was extremely salty in some places (odd that it wasn't seasoned evenly but good too so I didnt' have to send it back). The meal was satisfying and reasonably priced. But the most outstanding part of the experience was Katelyn and her outgoing personality that made us feel welcome. She was the hardest working server that we observed during our dining experience. The others were doing a good job, but Katelyn was giving service that was above and beyond. I told the manager on my way out what an excellent server Katelyn is and hope that he relayed that to her. We would definitely eat here again if we return to Mattoon, and would hope Katelyn would still be there.
