Went here for lunch recently. We arrived 30 minutes after they opened but walked into a dark restaraunt. There was a lady working at the bar but she never acknowledged us. We waited for about 10 minutes before a waitress finally came out. She said she just got there. Turned on the lights and sat us. The menu is very limited. There are more appetizer choices than entrees. Mostly burgers, sandwiches and wings. Our food was okay, nothing special. We were the only diners the entire time we were there. I think they have new owners so we may try them again.

Hello! I am very sorry you had such an unpleasant experience with your recent visit. This is definitely not the typical experience and is definitely not what anyone would expect. I appreciate you letting us know so we can correct it. I hope you give us the opportunity to serve you again and show what we can do. Also I wanted to let you know we have a new menu rolling out 3-25-13 which will have quite a few more entre options. You will be able to checkout at our website and on our Facebook page.. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you! -Fred

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 8 February 2006

A group of seven of us had dinner here last week. The food was Ok. Meatloaf portions were huge literally enough for 3 meals. The flat iron steak was good. Coconut shrimp was excellent however it was served with cold sauce. Three members had to send back their cold green beans and mashed potatoes. Prices were reasonable, for a mediocre meal. Service was average.

Hello!
We just took over this business in August of 2012. We have made many improvements and are currently updating the menu. Since this review is quite old, if you are still in the area, I encourage you to stop by and check it out for yourself. Thanks for your time! -Fred
