Lunch is a good deal, but the trophies on the wall are overwhelming. There are occasional very cheap specials, like fish and chips.

I hesitated visiting this place because of the (trophy's?????") hanging on the walls. There are dead.... murdered animals, Elephants, monkeys, deer, the list goes on, hanging on the walls.. Just be aware of where you are walking into.

Attractive offerings surrounded by big game trophies in a small community downtown location. Friday set price offerings with lunch specials.
