Wondered about the name, but staff didn't know. Exceeded our expectations. Prime rib was the nightly special and it was delicious. Blackened catfish was a surprise. Absolutely enjoyed it. Would not dream of whining.

Good menu selection of decent food. I had the meat balls and spaghetti, very tasty. My wife had a tuna sandwich which she enjoyed.

Reasonably priced. Good service from nice people. "Seasoned" (instead of Senior) pricing so could get a smaller meal. Had chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. Good meat and potatoes. Cream gravy was peppery, but ok. Not up to Texas standards, but still, a...More
