I had the ribeye special with red potatoes and asparagus. Was all so delicious! Then the dessert was an amazing warm brownie sundae. Husband had the burger and onion rings, all great. He really loved the huge piece of carrot cake for dessert.

Not a bad dinner, it was a little pricey for what we had, but not bad. We were handed our menus, told to read the 3 wipe boards for the specials and find a table.....ok. OUR waitress was very pleasant, but some of the others...More
