Everyone else was seated at the bar. You could tell this was a locals bar. It seemed like everyone knew each other. The... More

We arrived later in the evening and were very pleased that we could order anything we wanted from the menu. We sat at a table but could have sat at the bar and felt right at home. The food was great, portions were huge and we were pleased. Service was excellent and enjoyed the country music playing in the background.

I enjoyed my beer, the waitress was very friendly, the food was great! I'd come back, especially in the summer to sit out on the patio!

We had dinner on a Tuesday night and we super impressed with how kind and friendly the staff was. The chili was fabulous as was the tomato soup - well worth the stop in!

The menu is extensive so a bit of a challenge to order something, as it all looked so good. I must add that they... More
