We were staying at the KOA just down the road, and they recommended this Restaurant. Well the service was impeccable. The food was so delicious. It was the Best Pepper Steak I have ever had. Make sure you go hungry. Big portions.

Went to this place based on the positive rating. It's very popular with locals which is a good sign. The wine list was very solid and prices were inexpensive. The bread was tasty, but overcooked. I had prime rib which was twice the size on...More
