This restaurant has been a favorite for 30 years. The food and service in that time has never changed. Food and service have been excellent for 30 years. It is family operated by 2 generations. We have never had a bad meal. Lunch has great choices for good price. Dinners have abundant choices available all day.

Lovely restaurant - laid back feeling with a good choice on the menu. Portions are a little large so might want to share these rather than have your own as you might not manage a whole portion.
