Enjoyed chicken and waffles. The chicken was peppery and flavorful. The cream waffle was one of the best I have enjoyed outside the home. Large portion. Very close to the Peppermill Casino Resort.

Nice place, service very accurate, also for kids. The steaks were very good with a fine choice of sides. 50 $ for 2 steaks & one kid's menù. Maybe should be batter a beer/Wine list.
