My husband and I have gone to this restaurant numerous times and always had good service and good food. However, our last visit was not pleasant at all.

This is our favorite in Zionsville. Great food. Friendly (no pun) staff and patrons. Almost always packed. Be aware, no children. On street or city lot for parking.

Located on the Main Street in Zionsville the offer a wide variety of home cooked favorites. From the fried chicken th the breaded tenderloin everything is spot on and delicious. Servers are all great and make you feel at home no matter how busy they are at that time. Highly recommended

This is our "go to" place at least 2 or 3 times a month. It is a fun atmosphere and the food and drinks are always good.
