Lunch was terrific. Chicken fingers platter with either fries or salad can't be beat. Get to lunch early for best seating.

35 minutes later we were seated....and there was 12 empty tables in the dining room. Such a wait for such a terrible old piece of prime rib....Over priced and over hyped. Rather go to McDonald's

Visited this restaurant with friends from the local area who consider it great and now agree with them. A somewhat rustic environment but the food and service were great. Will come back the next time we're in the area.
