Maybe they've always had this but we just discovered the nightly special 'take and bake' family size meals. I've told all my friends. This is great when you've had a long day and just aren't up to cooking a meal. Food here is good stuff.

Stop by you'll be glad you did. The food here is excellent and the atmosphere is a plus. I had the ribeye and my wife had the champagne chicken. Our friends had spaghetti and fried chicken salad. Everything was delicious and fast service.

A jewel of fine dining in the heart of redneck country. The prices are affordable too. Food was great, the music and lighting make a nice romantic setting. Exudes class without the pomp.
