The building is for rent; I believe it has been just a few months since it closed. I never saw many cars in the parking lot when I would drive by, so I am assuming that is why they closed.

Drove by and noticed the restaurant had closed. Sign was down, and parking lot empty at noon. Catering truck was still by building but looked very empty.

Not only were the Rib's cooked to perfection but I think I was more impressed with the Berry Cobbler that I had for desert. I am willing to say that I would go there just for the desert option
