Had a really delicious meal for dinner. Looks like a small family run place. We were most impressed by our server, Jeremy. What a charming, efficient, friendly, quick, amazing young man who worked the whole restaurant. Meal was super tasty. Great little find!

Atmosphere is great, always carnations on the tables. Waiters are great, personable, and efficient, with great memories for what we had last time. The ribs are always great, and large portions. Prime rib was delicious.
