Had a wonderful dinner! One of the best steaks I've had. Cooked perfectly. Prices are very reasonable. Meals include bread, sides and dessert. Small cabin setting with personal, friendly service. Make reservations if possible as seating is limited.

Reservations were easy! The sautéed mushrooms drenched in butter were artery-clogging divine. Plastic table cloths, paper napkins, and styrofoam plate cheapened the ambiance of this charming and historic space.
