Excellent service, outstanding food. Our family really enjoyed the atmosphere and courtesy staff. We felt like we were back at our grandparent’s home for country supper.

This place is coasting down on a good reputation but needs some improvements and updates. The potholes in the road at the entrance say it all. Management is not paying attention to what is really going on. Take a trip from the lobby to the...More
