Steaks and burgers great, salad very good. Atmosphere can be noisy and sometimes you have to wait. Service is touch and go, sometimes great other times not so good. Never disappointed in the food though.

Homestead Restaurant makes the best homemade soups. Today we had vegetable lentil soup, just the ticket on a cold day. Afterwards my husband had the horseradish crusted filet mignon and I had the prime rib. Both were outstanding. Sitting now and debating dessert.

This is a place that's been here forever. They were known for barbeque and burgers. They still have very cold beer and good juicy burgers but need some ckeaning up. There is odor of grease from kitchen and staff is somewhat lazy
