Menu allows everyone to find something they will like. Prices are reasonable. We all enjoyed our dinner- even my sons. Have been back when when we are in the area.

This place has great service & food. It's very reasonable on your wallet. They can handle large groups, just call ahead first. Stop in if you can.
