Everyone in my family ordered something different and we were all satisfied with our selection. Some of us got the salad bar which was clean and well-stocked with a good variety. The atmosphere is simple, comfortable, and nice. The wait staff was friendly, as well.

I always make it a point to stop on here when visiting Ocala. It is a very local, very friendly spot for lunch where the food is consistently good and the value hard to beat. The place is not much to look at, but the...More
