Went with my co-worker and got the salmon. The price was average but it was pretty fast and it tasted great. I would go back again if I'm ever in the area.

The menu (and décor) is likely to have not changed since the 1970s. My lasagna was not memorable in any way, however it did arrive to the table very hot.More

Covington's is always a favorite. Reasonably priced. Great food. Nice atmosphere for meeting friends for lunch. I've never had anything there that wasn't good but the Chicken Lavosh is a favorite! The Chicken Salad plate with fresh fruit is also great.

We were with a large group, everyone pre-ordered two weeks before. They ran out our choices anyway! They did not have enough staff either and we had to wait forever, so the food was cold. This place is not cheap! Go somewhere else.More

Good fresh food, home style cooking with a bit of class and wonderful desserts. Nice atmosphere. Ladies love this small restaurant. They also cater many functions in the area from small to extra large crowds. Always fresh and good.
