We stopped in randomly on our way home across the midwest and were delighted to be served a memorable dinner. The ambience was intimate and private, the service was top shelf, and the food was delectable. We had the ribeye, medium rare, and it was...More

We come here for special events. The last time, we asked for a private room and a few couples gathered to have a special dinner with some lifelong friends that are moving closer to their children. The food was amazing and memorable! The attentive wait...More

The food for breakfast and lunch was very good. Would recommend the jambalaya, tuna salad, hamburgers. The service is always good and we have experienced extremely long waits for food. That is the reason for a three rating.
