“Good food in casual atmosphere”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We have Sunday School groups of couples eat here a couple times a year. You will never go away hungry. Largest steaks I have ever seen. You gotta have some of the onion rings. Wait staff is always polite and attentive. The only negative I can think of is it is very crowded inside. But no problem for me. I recommend it.

“Different atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Interesting place off the beaten path. Food is plentiful, well prepared and priced right. Hours are a bit quirky but one you know how they seat by number for customers arriving before they open in the evenings, it moves fast enough. Well worth a try but get there early!

“Steaks so large they fall off the plate.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

My family eats here every year in early fall as the leaves change and this year did not disappoint. The steaks were perfectly cooked and large as always, football sized baked potatos, and great sweet tea! I wish they still served the banana pudding like they used to.
