Can't go wrong with the fish dinner. The fish was awesome as always last night. Added green beans which I love. Mashed potatoes aren't that good, but I don't have them very often, so they were okay.

The fresh fries here are perfectly crisp on the outside and soft in the inside. The root beer is very good and the hamburgers are freshly COOKED to your order. So it's fresh. Clean dining area with booths and tables. See pics. Very family friendly....More
