Nothing much to say really. I got the ribeye steak, medium rare, perfectly done, and a baked potato. Absolutely delicious. Great service. No complaints. Everyone else in the party was more than satisfied with their food as well.

This was just a convenient location, but it turned out to be a most enjoyable experience. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating, the menu was diverse and everything was cooked to order. The prime rib - super. Will be back soon.
