We found a coupon for $9 off a dinner entree, so we thought we would give this place a try. Unfortunately it was a non experience. Can't remember what we ate, our server's name or anything else about the place. Guess it is good for them that we don't recall anything negative - but we likely won't return or recommend... More

The filet Milan is absolutely fabulous! Veggies are always fresh & fried pies are delicious! They serve beer & allow you to bring your own wine. We go here regularly.

Very good home cooking! Old world charm, nothing fancy about it but the food is like something your grandma made and is DELICIOUS! Odd hours - only open for lunch and dinner. Great place!

A change of pace is what I was looking for and what I found here. The food was good fresh and homemade. The price was fair to average not cheap for sure but portions are nice here and service was good not great. Time is not a priority here and not sure if it's staff or prep or both but... More

Hubs and I decided to give this place a try - had fried pickles, which were good. Dinner took quite a while to come, and not sure why, as it wasn't busy. I ordered the catfish, fried with mustard greens and mac and cheese. The catfish was good, mac and cheese good but the mustard greens were SO salty I... More

Went twice. First: lunch. The menu is on blackboards, and as the food is gone, it is erased. The blue plate had some good choices, but the mashed potatoes seemed watered down. Dinner menu was varied, and the people with me all chose different items. No complaints from anyone. There is a must try appetizer- mud bites- or something like... More

A friend told us about this place, so we decided to try it one Saturday night. We got there right at 5:00 was able to get seated right away. I had the filet with a baked potato and slaw. It was all delicious. The filet was cooked very good. It was a little pricey, but if it is good it... More
