Good home cooked type food. Massive portions at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for traditional comfort food this place is for you. Service was good so was the food. It will remind you of dinner at grandmas house.

Thanks for your question. Yes we do. We have 5 whites, 5 reds, and a rose all available by bottle or glass. It's a fairly decent selection for a family restaurant.
