Great little place to go for any reason. I just stopped in on my way back north. Simple but great menu, clean environment and friendly employees. I wish there was one closer to where I live. Get the grizz.

Yummy food and friendly service.... Although the staff were very loud and u could all the conversations about closing early and so on...Which made it hard to enjoy your meal while listening to their drama It was good food and the service was good.
