Isn't this up for auction on the courthouse steps? I think they closed in November 2013 unable to continue. The hotel is definitely closed, thus if the restaurant lives, my sincerest apologies, but it does seem impossible.

We eat here occasionally throughout the year. It is always nice to sit down with friends and have a nice meal without going to a chain restaurant. The staff is always friendly and the food always good.

We ate several meals at this restaurant last weekend. Every one of them was excellent. The food is so good and presented well, too. I would go back to this place anytime!

This is not haute cuisine. But it is tasty, inexpensive, and in a setting that evokes the late 50s/early 60s lifestyle. I had the lunch buffet, which has relatively limited selections, but which is worthwhile overall. I would say I definitely got my money's worth.
