The food and service is always good. The baked sweet potato is delicious and anyone should always get that. Its a perfect drive out from Chesapeake ( about 1 hour ). I especially like the fried scrimp and the prime rib. Go, you'll like it.

I really don't know. It's not really a burger and sandwich kind of place. I had crab cakes and my husband had prime rib and it was delicious.
