I had never been here before and decided to try the lunch special. It came with two T-bone lambchops done to perfection! They were thick cut and tasted so good. I will take my friends here! Yum.

We eat here often, and I have never had a bad meal. When you arrive, the server will bring a basket of made-in-house bread with two different butters, one of which is spicy. The scallop and spinach salad is terrific. The egg bennies come with...More
