A quick lunch before heading to the lake. Always love the special on Saturdays, which is your choice of any of the previous days of the week specials. I had the BBQ sandwich and 2 sides all of which were great. The restaurant has plenty...More

The food was good (as usual) and the service was fast. The restaurant looked like they had just had a large crowd as it was not as clean as I would have expected.
