A little disappointed in my Chicken Fried Steak, expected home made, but frozen patty. Good Salad Bar. Good Liver and Onions. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

The waitresses are very friendly and serve the food and drinks quickly. For most entrees there’s a soup and salad bar included which is very nice. I had the chicken breast with the rice and it was perfect.
