Another one of the places only the locals know. Nice menu variety. Steak salad is great. Service has gotten better over the years. Staff is attentive and prompt. They do not open until 4pm.

The waitress wasn't friendly and that hit us right away. The place is a bit run down. The burgers were burned, the steak was over cooked, the vegetables I think were from a can and the hash browns were very greasy. It isn't cheap when...More

Very good. Locally owned and people are very friendly. Steaks were of a very good quality. Servers worked hard to keep up. Only two individuals taking orders but service was swift. Great menu. A hidden gem.

This is a tiny place (so you might have to wait for a seat) that's kind of out of the way, but it's worth the trip and time! The beef is from local cattlemen, and you can taste the freshness. I like my steaks medium...More

Always a friendly atmosphere, in an out-of-the-way location. The food is good, the prices reasonable, and the staff is friendly. Not for those in a hurry. Small kitchen and small staff means it takes time to get your food prepared to perfection - which is...More
