Locally owned and run. This great restaurant has been a staple in this community for decades. Recently improved location and new building has just made them better. Reasonably priced and simply excellent fare. Pass the fast food and brand places and find this local star.

The service was wonderful! Our meals were okay but not amazing. Go for dessert! I had coconut cream pie and my husband had the frozen peanut butter pie. Both were really good.
