At first glance this seemed like a good choice for a group to get a good lunch. We were hoping for a "something for everyone" type place. The only thing for a vegetarian is a salad.

I had a ribeye and my wife a filet. The steaks were well prepared if not the best cuts. The sides were good also.

Portion sizes are generous. The mini-chocolate pecan pie was ALMOST too big for one person. The service was excellent.

I make a point to stop by every time I visit Owensboro. They have a wide variety of foods to meet everyone's needs, including their kids menu, which includes a drink and... More
