What a nice little find. Greeted and seated quickly. Bigger than it looks. The baked pork chop was very tender, cauliflower soup so good. The french fries were also good. Place was clean. Staff attentive. A very nice selection of items to choose from.

We are local. First time. Fried chicken very good, fried perch good. Barley soup average-didn't care for it. Cracker basket- saltines and wrapped rolls that were not fresh. Saw individual salads being made with no gloves on. Excellent and friendly service. Huge menu--too big actually....More
