The atmosphere is great. The help are wonderful people. The food portions are good for the price. You may want to share with a spouse or don't get salad too. The Ravioli appetizer was really good and we had a coupon for it.

I eat here regularly. Food is always fresh and tasty. Portions are large. Specials everyday. Great homemade deserts. Clean. I don't agree about the dingy restrooms. Always clean and well lighted. It's dark on the west side if not being used.

This is a wonderful Family Restaurant. The food is excellent. The Fried Chicken is so good and who can resist their Polk Tenderloin sandwich with fries? The Service is great, and the owners are usually on site.
