Small, quaint restaurant. Great ambiance. Excellent food & service. Best steaks in the area. Entertainment on weekends. Dave, the owner, cooks, oversees, & comes out to check on customers. Hands on, 1st class place.

Like an oasis. You’d never think a place like this exists in the area. Wine list was impressive. Owner is over the top with his attention and making sure you’re taken care of.
