We found this place way of in the country. Don't drive your clean car because you will be on a dusty gravel road getting there, just to let you know. But let me tell you it worth the drive and the dust if you want...More

Several of us ladies had been wanting to visit this restaurant for a while, and finally made it. The food was good. I have to say their meatloaf is some of the best I have ever eaten. We all enjoyed the meal.

Loved the meatloaf and most of the dishes but the meatloaf stood out. Has all the country favorites. Finding the ice cream seemed tricky but the server pointed right to it. Driving through a lumber yard to a restaurant seemed odd but its all good.

This place is open only 3 days a week. If you don't go early...you will have to wait. But while you wait, you can sit on the porch and enjoy the ambiance. The food is so good! Homemade desserts and ice cream finish the meal....More

This is a Menonite owned place. The best part about it are their home made breads & jams & jellies. The food is tasty but some of it is obviously mass produced food you would get at some places in town. If you are there...More
