Wonderful vintage building, lovely atmosphere. The food is flavorful and the plates are huge, must try the deep fried cream cheese, it is decadent and to die for. Staff is friendly and accommodating, will definitely revisit in the future.

Very diverse menu, not the same old mundane, generic entrees that plagues Cheyenne. Great food, great service, great prices! If you haven't eaten here yet your missing out!
