What an unbelievable surprise in a remote location; wonderful people/service; the food was of gourmet quality in this country setting. Who could imagine that even pretzel sticks could be so perfect? A sauce to accompany that was superb. The homemade chips were done with a cheese sauce that was definitely homemade. The date stick appetizers were different and delicious. Bang bang shrimp lightly fried, beating all the spicy shrimp we have had locally. All 8 of us could not believe this gem in the countryside. The only reason it is not a 5 is the atmosphere. It is really a diner without any ambience for a dinner crowd; the beer/alcohol selection reflects more of a diner type of attitude. If you want an excellent meal this is it; if you want the whole dinner experience, it is lacking.

Wife and I visited after driving by a number of times, the exterior of the place does not do justice to the food. Got off to a little rocky start as it took some time for the waitress to get to us after other couples who arrived after us were waited on. No big deal but left us wondering as they were not that busy. Nice crab appetizer and we both had the prime rib, plenty for take home, will go back.

My wife and I had breakfast there. Lots of local folks enjoying the morning. She had the Monte Cristo sandwich and I had the home made hash and scrambled eggs. The hash was a tad greasy, but in the end, there was nothing left on our plates. Everything made from scratch. Plenty of parking. We'll be going back.

The tittle says it all. Homemade goodness even homemade jam. Good for lunch and dinner too. Looks better inside so don't let the exterior fool you.
