Great service and really good food. I had Alfredo Fettuccine and the portion was so large I had to take half home. My husband hot the pot roast and it was tasty. Also had the derby slaw and it was good.

This was a great local find. Their Halibut sandwich and open top roast beef and potatoes was great. This is one of those local stops deep within the little cities that you should not miss.

Really excellent comfort food. Had the beef liver and was great. Our daughter had pot roast and was equally good. The place is vintage and takes you back to the past. Parking is across the street.
