I have eaten here several times since it opened a few years ago since it is right on the way to my summer place. In my opinion the food has gone down hill while the prices have gone the other way. We stopped for a light dinner last Thursday and I had a the saltiest cream of potato soup I have ever tasted and the wings which were extremely vinagery. Wife had spinach quesadilla and liked it.
I was very surprised to see that the steaks were in the $22 - 28 range and appeared to be ala carte as there was a menu for sides which iclude $2.75 each for potato and veggy.
It is true that it is alway busy but I believe that it is virtually the only restaurant along either Rte 30 or 47 for miles.
The final straw is that the waitress never told us about 5 or 6 specials for that evening. I only found out because as I was paying my check I heard a waiter telling the people across from us about some great sounding meals (tenderloin tips and noodles).
Our waitress seemed to be more interested in standing at the hostess stand chatting with the two women working there.
I'll eat in Naperville from now on before getting on the tollway to the land of nothing to eat.
