“Great experience and great service.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We are new in town and the sales lady at Shannon's Home Furnishings told us about this place. The food was excellent. I love the "surprise me chef" feature. I got something called the bacon bomb which was amazing to say the least. The mushroom caps are great too. You can't really go wrong on anything you order. The service was great. Our server was named Charlie, he was excellent. By far the best service in town we received so far. My one complaint is apparently when you order a cocktail it can take awhile because they have to walk next door to get it. The price is comparable with restaurants in larger cities which I found to be great. I will go back to this place for sure.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We took my mother in law here for her 87th birthday. There were 4 of us. My mother in law and I ordered the top sirloin, my wife ordered the vegetarian lasagna and my son ordered the chicken parmesan sandwich. Everyone loved the food. I thought my steak was one of the best steaks I have had in a long, long time, and by far, the best in the area. My son, who is very picky, loved his sandwich, which really surprised us. Everyone agreed that the food was excellent. The chef came by before we ate and spoke with us for a bit, and then checked on how the food was after we had finished. This was a nice, personal touch. Our experience was excellent, and we will definitely go back.

“Brunch”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The best brunch for a hundred mile radius. Chef John and the rest of the staff make every dinning experience wonderful and enjoyable. The food is always good and prepared to order in a timely manner.
