Nice place for a quiet meal. Great pork chop, generous portion. Excellent mashed potatoes. Good Pinot Grigio. Wonderful attentive staff even when busy!

Salad bar is very fresh and homemade pasta salads. The prime rib sandwich was amazing! Very large slice of melt in your mouth prime rib. The hoagie bun was very fresh as well. Wish this restaurant wasn't 130 miles from my house!
