This is a little neighborhood restaurant with delicious food. We had the fish fry I would say it is the best I have ever had. I had the 3 piece and had enough to take home for another meal. The popovers were just amazing.

Lots of food but nothing tastes good! We ordered the 20$ meal for each one of us, they brought everything out almost at the same time. That was crazy and everything was awful! Do not recommend at all! Btw cash only place.

This is a restaurant with a large following. The food is good and the portions large. Good selection on the menu and breakfast is served through lunch time. Staff is very friendly. This is not a large restaurant so you may have to wait occasionally.

If you want lots of good food at reasonable rates along with scrumptious popovers, head to Little Oven. Specialties are steaks & Italian cuisine. Best to park in the lot across the street for easy access & exit. They do not take checks so bring...More

My wife and I went here for a quick dinner date and we were not disappointed. The seating area is quite small, so unless you eat an early dinner, you will have to wait to be seated. The food prices are incredibly reasonable, but be...More
