The present owners are trying to sell Karen's Place. If it is not sold by mid-December they will be shutting it down permanently. It is too bad as it is in a good downtown location but not many business / office people are going there....More

Nothing fancy, just really good food. Friendly service. Only thing is that they don't have interact. Cash only.

A friendly place to sit down and relax, with either your family or just the two of you. Home cooking at its best. Great food, great service. You won't walk away hungry. Every Friday night we have our theme night buffets; every FRIDAY is different. From Mexican, Greek, Hawaiian, German, taste of the sea, taste of Europe, Jamaican, to New Orleans. And our waitresses dress up to the theme.
