We just love this little local gem. Nothing fancy, family owned. Owner is the chef, and his food is plentiful and outstanding. We go there at least once a month, a local favorite.we had the owners daughter as our server and she was delightful

Perfect place to stop for light menu options or full entree. I highly recommend the Salmon with dill sauce. Best I have ever had. They always have fresh soups on the menu. The cream of mushroom is phenomenal! Wing night Wednesday is popular with locals.

We always enjoy coming here for dinner. Food is excellent. Service is great, ask for Tasha, she's a wonderful waitress with a great sense of humor.

This is a bar and a restaurant in a nice antique building. Lots of locals at the bar and dining room. Food was good and the service was excellent. There is something on the menu for all tastes. If you're looking for fine dining this is not the place.

If you are looking for a great restaurant with consistently good food, and nice atmosphere, look no further. This is my favorite restaurant because I love the ambience there and the food is delicious. The people who run the place are lovely, fun people, too. Also, the bartender named Lori is so very friendly. I like just about everything on... More

I guess this place is OK if you live close & just want to have a drink. I felt it was way overpriced. The food was alright but nothing worth raving about. There are too many other better places to eat in the area.

Despite reading some negative reviews, we decided to follow some local friends' advice and give them a try. We were not disappointed! We were seated promptly on a Friday even though we did not have a reservation. The server was polite and friendly. The food and service were both really good. We had a great evening!

Go often for a Friday night dinner and go for the Early Bird Specials. Soup is excellent and specials are always great. Never had a problem with service, staff is friendly and out going.

We were a party of 7. We did have a reservation and when we arrived it was not busy. It took forever for the server to take our drink order. Service was slow and nothing to snack on while we waited. I saw a party of 5 leave because they had to wait so long just for a menu. Our... More

At. 5:00....Made a 6:00 reservation. All went well and 6 of us were seated quickly. Started bad when one server loudly said "I am not taking that table." So, I figured they were short staffed, which was the impression all seemed to work towards giving. Took almost 15 minutes before we were acknowledged and that was only after my daughter... More
