service and dinner was good. This is the local town stake house. Just good food, and still not sure if the desert was made there. Table could have been cleaner, had a puddle of water near wall.

My husband had the rib eye, medium rare. I ordered the New York Strip, rare. Both were delicious. We try to visit this place every time we come through this area, if only for the soup. They had redecorated since we had last been there. Most of the wood paneling has been replaced, and gone is the faded photo of... More

I was hoping for down-home southern cooking, but was disappointed. Food was average, service was average, prices were high for the quality. As a side note, the windows are heavily tinted, which was very odd and somewhat disconcerting.

The food was good, the service helpful, and the prices reasonable. Many menu choices to appeal to a variety of tastes. Small, open dining room with dated decor, but a nice local feel.

The vegetable soup (a nice and meaty vegetable soup) is amazing, and made daily! We had to ask that they replenish the soup on the quaint but fresh salad bar when we arrived. Steaks were quite good, and cooked quite well.... I mean rare and medium-rare as we requested. The peanut butter pie for dessert was so-so.

What a find! Amazing reasonable steak place! $30 steak for two could have fed four with left overs! Huge servings and it was cooked to perfection! The sides were just as amazing. We had a group of 11 and they took good care of us! Be prepared to wait. The staff was very friendly just had several large groups at... More

We all had the prime rib special and it was delicious! Salad bar has a good selection, and our waitress was very nice. The cooks came out of the kitchen, and I was pleasantly surprised to see their gloves were on! Recommend everyone visiting cave city to eat here for dinner!

The steak we ordered was overcooked and dry. However it did have a good taste. The salad bar was good as was our sides. Probably our first and last time.
