My wife and I went there with about 22 other people, the waitresses were friendly and nice. We placed our order for an appetizer and food, the appetizer came out quickly, then our food. Both were great and at a reasonable price.

We stopped in this restaurant while passing through town. It was very good and the service was excellent. I ordered the chicken salad croissants and my husband ordered the salmon. Both were delicious. We will certainly stop again if in town.

We stopped here for dinner. The food was good, about average. I had a chicken breast sandwich which was a little dry. My spouse had a fried chicken sandwich which was good. Service was good, not great. No complaints, just nothing to write home about.
