Stopped in for lunch and was greeted immediately with smiles. We sat at the bar and Janie, the bartender, took care of us. She always remembers what we like and is very attentive to our needs. Highly recommend visiting. You won’t be disappointed.

I got my steak medium and it was filled with blood. Four of us asked for no mash potatoes and we all got it with the fries all in the mash potatoes. Plus it took an hour for our food.
