This is a long established local place known for its great food and reasonable prices. At first I didn't like the idea of waiting an hour to get in, but then we found chairs on the deck and sat and talked. I even took some...More

Dinner menu is only two items, steak or german pasta with vegetables. Both were very good. Desserts were to die for!! That is what this stop will be remembered for.

You have two choices on the menu: a beef filet (6 or 9 oz) or dumplings. Delicious! Either! CASH ONLY. If you submit and “do it their way,” you won’t be disappointed. Great value. Good for large parties too. We’ll be back.
