Stopped by for lunch this week. The building sign is gone. There was a hand written sign on one door saying closed for remodeling and another sign saying everything was being auctioned off.

We eat here for dinner every 2-3 months or so, and have come here for quite a few years. Most recent visit was just last week. The service has always been good, and the owner seems to come around to inquire how everything is. My...More
