The service is great here, friendly smiles and attentive. Ordered the cheeseburger and it was “ok”. Atmosphere and service makes up for the lack of flavor in burger.

Food was really good and the portion sizes were large. Our waitress was wonderful. She was very friendly and kept us well taken care of but didn't hover. We had a nice visit with my nephew and never felt rushed. Definitely would go back!
