We enjoyed our evening meals here. They were reasonably priced, quick service and a nice cosy environment with it being winter. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his large burger with a good selection of toppings and decent meat patty and good amount of bacon (one of the best he’s had he said) and also served with fries.

Just wanted a nice warming bowl of soup and got a bowl of not sure. Fries weren't up to much either and the counter food looked unappealing. If you want beer and nachos might be ok.

Called in for lunch and a beer on way to motel, great choice. Atmosphere of a hotel of past with mementoes on the wall. I had the Broccoli and Bacon Salad, OMG, the taste was delicious. Large serve I had trouble finishing. Husband the Chicken Club Sandwich, also a good choice.
