Jody and Scott welcome you with great food selections and a friendly staff. A great gathering place, suitable for all ages. Well-stocked bar, as well as good choices for lunch or dinner.

We had a party of 9 and walked in as the first customers but filled up quickly. They have a kids menu. Hamburgers are great, homemade chips were very good. We would come back. Our waitress was fabulous she managed all the tables by herself.
