Great local restaurant with incredible service (ask for J.R.). Had business dinner this week and was not expecting the delicious entree and baked Alaska for dessert. I met the owner, Larry, to congratulate him on the best restaurant experience I have had in a while.

This is a restaurant that offers good quality American comfort food. Entree’s are good and the steaks are nicely cooked. The service can be improved but our server made a good effort to tend to us. They close early, so we end up hitting the...More
