......not to mention how clean it is. Food was perfect for the three of us....we were attended to but not overwhelmed with too much attention. Food was served hot and delicious. White wine was chilled and selection was plentiful! We will return!

A country-style restaurant serving basic American food, fresh, well-prepared, and tasty. The no-frills menu calls out beef, fish and chicken dishes in hearty portions.
