Quaint restaurant - generally enjoyable experience for budget dining out. I found the pork roast to be OK for price paid. Staff were enthusiastic and friendly. If you are looking for a hot meal for reasonable cost in a convenient location this is your place.

Went here when we saw they served ribs. The sauce on the ribs was delicious, but you don't get a lot of ribs for the money you pay. Service was OK.

Good food. Not exotic, but tasty with large portions. Friendly staff. More of a place the local population eats at, and that gives it a charm that the more touristy restaurants lack.
