Stopped here for dinner after exploring the hills during the day. Had a short wait. Service was prompt once we were seated. Casual atmosphere and decor. Food was served hot and quickly after we ordered. Reasonably priced.

This is a great establishment with excellent customer service. The waitress was very friendly and helpful with menu questions and suggestions. We loved it!

Stopped by here with friends for a great lunch. We had an excellent lunch and service was very good. It was not very busy since we came in the off season and that worked well for us.

The staff and food were more than any of us expected. It was delicious, quick and friendly. If it weren't 1700 miles from me I would eat there everyday.

Good, homemade food. Everyone had a good dish. even the kids meals were good.The buffalo tips were excellent, so was the pork brisket (half order is still big) and the country fried steak.
