I’ve been coming here for 37+ years, and it never disappoints. Great food at a reasonable price! You won’t be disappointed!

Very good food and service. Not fancy, just down home good Indiana food. The portions are large and the the service is excellent. Visited with a large group and we were all well taken care of. Great selection of beer at super reasonable prices.

I tried this restaurant and the menu was more like a typical American restaurant. I took a ribeye and it was very good. It's quite central in Logansport

Wife's cousin took us here for dinner after a day of traveling to the old family homesteads. Food was good and the place is an old historical restaurant that has been there since 1881. Very reasonable prices as well..
