The food is standard American fare. The fried fish was good, and the little salad bar was nice to get something green into my dinner. It's definitely a place where older people congregate and grab a drink on a Friday night. Friendly atmosphere.

Had lunch there and I think I was the youngest person in there which is not a bad thing. The food was average and nothing special and prices are reasonable..

I did not have a full meal here but did have an appetizer and a couple of beers. The food was good and resonably priced. The bartender was very pleasant.

Oddly the pictures above are Meadow Court which is the associated motel.... Anyway, this place looks ordinary but turns out some great food. I have really been impressed by the fruit cup the last few weeks. Very fresh every time. This morning my associate had...More

The crowd at lunch tells you it's OK, and the food is well presented and tasty, while the prices are quite reasonable. The atmosphere of the crowd makes the experience and fun.

This hotel does take reservations but I would call them right away especially if this is for a graduation weekend. Good luck.
