The lunch we chose was the roasted turkey and mash potatoes and gravy. It was awesome and hit the spot! The blueberry pie topped off the lunch! Kudos to the staff for super fast friendly service. A definite yes!

It is so so good. I don't know why... The rest of the food is good too, even though the staff is ambivalent.
