Good, homestyle food. Average salad bar, very attentive waitress. After a week on the road, we appreciated this type of food.

If you are looking for a cool experience try Earl's. The food is not superior, but seeing the natives sell there crafts table to table and outside the restaurant was interesting. It is definitely a local place, wich we liked. So-so food, fun experience.
