We first stumbled on this gem over 10 years ago. Today's experience was just as great. This is a simple, no frills restaurant that could teach a lesson or two to other establishments. The decor is simple but always very clean. The menu hasn't changed much and neither has the recipe for the most wonderful beef vegetable soup that is... More

Food was good, but they were out of a lot of what we ordered. Service was slow. We had to wait for some time on our food & did not get refills on our drinks very promptly. They were not busy. But I will say again the food was good.

3/23/2017 My wife and I stopped to visit Mammoth cave Nat park on our drive from Cleveland to south Texas. We stayed in cave City and ate here on March 23, 2017. It is as good as it gets for a very small rural town and we loved it. It isn't fancy and does not try to be. The décor... More

The food here is very good. The atmosphere is very nice and the salad bar was well stocked and the veg soup was very good. The sirloin was cooked perfect and was way bigger than the 10 oz I ordered.

This place is an excellent steakhouse with a homey atmosphere. The Ribeye steaks were juicy and cooked exactly as requested. The prices were reasonable and the service was friendly. A excellent place to stop for dinner.

The food was great, but the decor was very dated. I didn't mind, but it did remind me very strongly of restaurants I grew up eating at when I was a child. Hospitality was on point though. Very nice and friendly staff.

We all had steak (of course!) and it was cooked correctly and seasoned pretty well. Salad bar was small, but had a decent selection. Had the peanut butter pie for dessert and it was quite delicious! Service was excellent and overall this was a good restaurant.

The steaks we had were prepared perfectly, and at a price that was reasonable as well. Not what I would have guessed from the outer appearance of the building, but definitely a first rate steak house.

The food was good and the service was very friendly. The grill the steaks on wood fired grill which adds to the flavor. The portions were good and the peanut butter pie was excellent.
