I actually went there with on a date with a special someone before he deployed to Iraq in 2009. We were originally seated in the dining room, but were the only ones there. We were invited to come back to the bar area which was still nice. We were introduced to all the regulars at the bar and given a nice table away from the bar. When they learned he was deploying in a couple of weeks, we were treated royally. The food was good and the service friendly. Our waitress was very outgoing and quirky, which added to the night in a good way. There isn't a lot of restaurants in Emporia, and you'll be disappointed if you're expecting a big-city 5-star restaurant, but I will go there again when I have the opportunity. I wanted to submit this review, even though it's late, because I have such warm memories of the people there and the good food that evening.
