Pros: Ample parking behind restaurant--some of it is metered. Very good food--good selection for the whole family. Reasonable prices, good value. Cons: Parking lot behind restaurant has many tripping hazards--especially bad behind the bank. Be careful walking to/from your car. Service was slow

The meals here are hearty and you certainly will not leave hungry. I have never had a meal here I did not enjoy. The service is reliably good, and the atmosphere is friendly. I always enjoy it.
