Been a few times now. Decided last minute to drop in and have a meal there last night. As always, the food and service were excellent. The price is very reasonable. We plan to visit again in a few weeks with other family members.

Last minute dinner out. This restaurant was a very nice find. The portions are large, the service is attentive and the food tasted great. The smoked chicken livers were spicy and the dips were very tasty. Too full to try the puddings. Maybe next time
