This restaurant serves the absolute best burger I have ever had! Meat imported from a ranch in Nebraska. They also have great meals, fabulous desserts, good service!

We enjoy eating here every once in a while when we are in the area. They have great breakfast and great chicken fried steak with hash browns and eggs.. Give it a try I think you will really enjoy the quaintness of the place and the servers.

The portions are huge, but the quality of food is the reason I'll keep going back. Had the lasagne special and it was delicious. Try it once and you'll back again and again.

Prime Rib very tough and could not swallow it. Waitress didn't help. Bartender rude. Instead of apologizing, they asked me not to return. I was not rude. They ruined my birthday. Very poorly managed, but used to be great years ago.
