We don't eat here often (Don't know why) but we have never been disappointed with any meal we ever had. The staff is courteous and the dining rooms comfortable. The parking lot is usually quite full. That should tell you something. People like it!

Damp, gloomy day, so each of us ordered a soup and sandwich. I had a Monte Cristo which I hadn’t had in a long time and it was very good. Service was attentive and prompt. We went a little before noon before it got busy....More

Was there last week at 5:30 and greeted by a friendly server named Renae. She is in the top 10 servers that I have come across. The food was good but it was out-shined by the service.
