Recommended by the Holiday Inn Express. Many thanks. Chicken took 20 minutes to prepare (as stated on the menu) but it was worth the wait. Very crisp and tender and not heavily breaded. Historical restaurant where Ike actually ate. Great draft beer as well.

Had a lovely dinner in the "Eisenhower" room last evening. Many historic memorabilia items on display. Daily specials and nice house wine too. Lovely old farm house has been a restaurant and was formerly known as "Lena's" on old Highway 40.
