Great little restaurant. Good food, attentive service and a clean restaurant. Nice for home cooking, burgers, or salads. Something for everyone!

This a solid meat and three type restaurant that does many things well. Good salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers and even good fried fish. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and clean. A solid choice for lunch any time.

Stopped in for dinner. This is a typical Meat / Potatoes type restaurant with Two vegetables and a roll. Food wasn't bad, but typical of a Mom and Pop restaurant. Good part is that it's not a chain restaurant.
