We love the relaxed family atmosphere and good home style cooking. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If you need some comfort food the chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes is a must. There is also a full bar.

I went there with a friend. I had the reuben and fries. They were fabulous. Her onion strings also were very yummy. It wasn't very crowded, but we had good service and good food. It was a great evening all around
