Many times this restaurant is overlooked. Take the time to visit, the food is great, I live the pecan encrusted chicken salad. Beer and wine only, great service !

The strawberry dressing on the house salad is to die for and the French dip is excellent. A very relaxed dining experience

Service was bad but the food was even worse !!! We ordered and one came out completely wrong. The other was cold. They took the first one back to "re do"... it came back 40 minutes later and was not eatable. There were no apologies and we simply paid the full bill and left. Will NEVER go back !!!!!

Historic building is beautiful and takes you back in time. Menu is interesting and food is good. Window seating allows view to quaint little town's Main Street.

Busy little restaurant in former store front. All three of us had the steak with white sauce and mashed potatoes. Steak was very good. White sauce? Not so much. I'd order it again but without the sauce. Very reasonably priced meals and wine. Waitress was good but had annoying habit of addressing us as "luvs". Would have preferred a simple... More

Coming here for many years and as a lunch spot, it does not disappoint. The basic menu has not changed except for the daily specials. The salads are excellent and plentiful. Try the pecan encrusted chicken salad. Dinner is a little pricey but still very good.

Thank Cassara
