My husband had their prime rib, he said it was ok, I had the trout, it was a bit overcooked. We both enjoyed our salads with gorgonzola and blue cheese dressing, and awesome fried green tomato's. It was a bit pricey, but it was ok.

Called themselves a steak house. Limited items. Chicken fingers was obviously not home made. Small portion of food given for a high price. Meatloaf was the star of the show on top of small amount of mashed potatoes.

It was delicious. We had Flounder Del Ray, it was stuffed with crab meat and had a alfredo sauce over pasta. It came with a great side salad and rolls. It was a nice surprise to find such a great little gem.

Saw the sign for prime rib, so we decided to stop and have dinner. We love prime rib and this place did have a very good tasting prime rib. The price is a little steep for the prime rib, but this town is a tourist...More
