The ambience is nice, but plain. The food is magnificent. I would recommend to anyone in the area. The service is beyond good, the servers really care about you and your comfort and experience.

Excellent food. It's a nice quiet place to go for a good dinner. I also see many walking in to get carryout . This restaurant is good for couples, friends, business, or solo visits.

My husband actually proposed to me after eating here; so it has a special place in my heart. :-) The service is great! I enjoyed the pork chops and the flower pot bread is very unique.

We took a little road trip in our convertibles and tried this restaurant because of the flower pot bread noted in other reviews. The setting is a store front just off the town square. The decor and furnishings are very basic. The bathroom is very...More
