We had a late, Wednesday, lunch here. Few customers there after 1pm. It was a pleasant break from driving, with each of us having a sandwich. The service was adequate.

Went for the prime rib night... Was decent, but I think I would have been better off just ordering a steak. If we try this place again, I'll try something different.

We learned about this restaurant from the hotel lobby "notebook". The food was excellent as was the service - our waitress was great!
