My first visit and why did it take me so long to try. Good service and very clean. Loved the chicken fried steak and the catfish was great. Buttermilk pie was out of sight.

Blackened chicken sandwich and fried green chile strips were amazing! Visiting my cousin here in Capitan and she took me to dinner, awesome food, reasonably inexpensive and great atmosphere. Wish we had this place close to us in SoCal

Great food, great service, great location & nice atmosphere. We had lunch & it was very good. Loved their potato salad & Rueben. Have good wine selection. Better than most. The owner asked us twice if we were pleased with our meal. Nice touch.

This place has 2 dining areas. I doubt you’d have trouble getting a table for 12 set up
