Cafeteria style, lunch/dinner special each day. Pretty good food, but it is still cafeteria style. Friendly staff, comfortable dining room, hot tasty food. They do have sandwiches.

Food was good, but prices were a little high, staff was pleasant. The tables were clean as was the silverware. A pleasant dining experience.
