Best steak in town! The friendliest wait staff and high quality food! The sweet potato fries are amazing! I go there for lunch a lot and have the Alley salad... It's great! If you like salmon they have the best!! Haven't had anything that wasn't top notch!!

Went there while traveling on business, and everything was great! Service was spectacular (sorry, didn't get her name), food was great, and drinks were fantastic! I'll definitely be visiting again the next time I am in the area.

We visited for luch at noon on a Tuesday and it was very busy with a full parking lot. That is always a sign of good grub! Our party of... More

Absolutely wonderful! Once again, Trip Advisor led us to a great place to eat. Getting there is an adventure but well worth it for the atmosphere, food and service.

We had an hr wait for a table but it was well worth it. Our waitress was amazing. She was very helpful on the different choices available and everything tasted wonderful. I had a steak and my guest had the Chicken fried steak. We actually took food home because we just couldn't eat anything more. We also ordered the chocolate... More
