We were looking for a nice place to have a sit-down lunch and enjoy ourselves and one member of our group suggested this. It is an old-fashioned atmosphere - friendly, relaxed and comfortable. The service was fast and the food was plentiful and delicious.

Breakfast choices are comfort food and out on the edge. Artery clogging Bison Stack is delicious combination of hash browns, ham, cheese, eggs and gravy. Interesting decor, very attentive and knowledgeable staff make for a most enjoyable dining experience.
