My husband and I had supper here on our way down to Joplin. Not sure what the previous reviewer was talking about with the smoke...didn't smell like cigarette smoke and no one was smoking while we were there. We ate in the dining room...maybe there's an attached bar but the dining room was fine. My husband had the hot beef... More

We wouldn't have stopped here for lunch if I had read the review that mentioned the restaurant allowed smoking. The food was pretty good, we had burgers, fries and homemade chips (thick fried potato slices). The downfall was that the smoke smell was strong throughout the restaurant. The bathrooms that connected the restaurant and bar area were so full of... More

Walkable distance from days inn and super 8 hotel with a great surprise for a resturant. Two of us ordered steak and they were great. Salad bar was simple and nice. Liked it enough, went back for breakfast the following morning. Great French toast too!

I have been here several times through the years. Different types of entrees / times of day. This time was lunch. Also to kill a little time before our next journey. Everything was fine. I'll be back

I was in town on business and didn't feel like eating chain food so I looked at what was available and chose the flaming lantern. I will say that it is nothing fancy and I got there shortly before closing. The special was wings and that's what I had. The portions were huge. I ordered 20 and couldn't finish half... More

We stopped here for breakfast, good breakfast. There was not any signs indicating that smoking was allowed and part way into our meal patrons came in and starting smoking. It is unfortunate that anyone is allowed to smoke anymore inside any establishment. Smoking should be done outside and not put at risk the health of others who choose not to... More
