We came to Chris’s on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. We were sat quickly and the waitress helped with some suggestions. Food was excellent and so was the service. We will be back next time we are in town. I would recommend.

We were there with a group of six. The menu has a good variety of options for a typical diner type restaurant. Pricing is very reasonable.
