Large portions and great prices. We had the steak sandwich and eggplant special for lunch. We could have shared both meals. Love the decor. Everyone was friendly. This is a must try restaurant

Wonderful double appetizer meal at the bar and the bartender was friendly and attentive. This may be an almost perfect small town restaurant. Definitely returning when I'm back in town.
