We like to eat here because the food is good and the waitstaff is great. Prime rib is pretty good and so is their breasted chicken. The only thing that has been a downside for us was their breakfast buffet. Great idea, they had a...More

I have Celiac, so food options can be limited in a smaller town. My favorite evening selection is the baked Cod with a baked potato. For lunch I bring in my own gluten free bun (which I am accustomed to with most restaurants) and they...More
