Shannon gives us fabulous service. She is warm, expeditious and makes great suggestions. The Chicken Sammie and Burger are yummy and very generous. I also love the Fries- crispy and the perfect portion. Shannon keeps us coming back for lunch!

80 years in business says something. The restaurant is very comfortable and the decor is pleasing and appropriate. The lounge does a lively business and the staff is great. The food was a bit disappointing. We started with crab stuffed mushrooms which were attractively presented...More
