When you walk in, this restaurant definitely has an old-school or vintage feel with the decor, coloring and booth styles. That combined with the friendly, Mid-western, small town service makes this a go-to place for eating when in western Nebraska. They rotate dinner specials regularly,...More

I read the reviews of this place and I wasn’t convinced, then I ate here and everything changed. I had the Salisbury steak and it was phenomenal. I could cut it with my fork and the French onion soup is so good. Recommended for any...More

There was nothing extraordinary about this place. The food was average and was over-priced. Apparently we missed something here. Don't know what was special about this place.

This is a place you rarely run across in a world full of chain restaurants and cookie cutter food. The prime rib is incredible and do not miss on the French Onion Soup. The smoked salmon appetizer is to die for too! The atmosphere is...More
