I’m in town for two weeks and will return here during my stay bringing family. The atmosphere is home-y with several options for dining - in, out at bar. Service was quick, friendly and down home. First samplings were delicious all.

Great variety of food options. Quality of dishes were fresh prepared and offered many 'homemade' options. Oldish home is the venue, so takes away a star. Food is a 6.
