Okay place to stop if you are traveling. Reminded me of 1950s cooking with canned fruit and cottage cheese salads. Large portions. Nice folks.

Does not matter what you order. It will be excellent food and plenty of it! We eat there often when our family is in this area. The servers are super nice. As for the price, 6 adults and 1 child with 4 to-go boxes. $67.00.

Food looked decent. I made the wrong choice in ordering the cold salmon plate. I thought it would be a smoked salmon, but it was a canned salmon with bone fragments. I had a hard time stomaching the meal. I ordered a side salad, which...More
