I expected to get at least a little whiff of garlic or cooking meat from an Italian restaurant but it smelled pretty sterile.

The service is very good and the food sraightforward American for the most part. The prices are right. We went for dinner and had a good time. We also stopped by for desert one night and they were just as welcoming.

Enjoyed Gluten Free pasta here after long day of wine tasting. Most other restaurants in town had closed their kitchens, but Checkers welcomed us. Friendly staff. Bar only has wine and beer, but that was fine for us.

Thank 113SuzanneM113
