Nice family owned and run local restaurant. Loved talking with the owner, owner's wife, and staff while getting served. Lots of specials offered to fill you up. Fun saddle seats if you have young kids to entertain.

The wife and I were looking for a place to eat for lunch and stopped in on a recommendation from family. The food was basic American, chicken fried steaks, steaks, burgers, fries, mashed potatoes, etc. The place looked clean and food was really good.

The staff and prices seem to make this a solid choice. The decor is functional and servings generous. The menu stretches "standard steak house" without blazing many new trails.

This restaurant has one of the friendliest staffs on the planet, but the food was mostly frozen and out of bags. But the waitress was extremely friendly and nice. All in all, if you are looking for 5 star food this is not the place,...More

Definitely your standard family diner. Better than average food at good prices. Service is great and everyone very friendly. I tried the coconut cream pie and was a bit disappointed. The Strawberry pie was very good. Nice place to go for a low key, quiet...More
