“Great CFS and fries”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The chicken fried steak was very good and large, and the fries were homemade and excellent. Entrees come with a choice of fries or baked potato, so I didn't get my vegetable craving satisfied. The service was excellent, but the rolls were pretty standard frozen variety it appeared.

“was not impressed!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

It was ok, nothing special. I would eat here again, but its not ever my first choice. We went there due to reviews being "great" and left feeling a bit disappointed.

“Best place in town”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is our favorite. The atmosphere is nice casual with a classy western motif. There are tablecloths and cloth napkins. The bread is excellent. The servings are so large that we generally share a meal. It can be very busy, so you might want to go early or late. Unfortunately, you can't make reservations. The owner is actively involved and often talks with you.

“Consistently good food”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Anything done in their beer batter is great! From the veggies to the shrimp, and since the portions are generous take the leftovers home because they reheat just as yummy as fresh.
And where else can you get escargot, no where!!
The bartender makes excellent drinks, which is good because on some nights you are looking at a wait, up to an hour & your whole group must be present; but the bar us a great place to hang.
One last thing - Caesar Salad!!! Make sure they put the anchovies.
Enjoy!!
