I don't know why this restaurant has a good review. The food is bland, cold, and it seems like out of the box. The terrible part of our dining was, we went there around 1:30 P.M and they were still serving an early bird special...More

We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and good. The wait is sometimes long, the service is wonderful. It is on the Main Street downtown and not hard to find.
