We've enjoyed dinning here for over a decade. Staff is friendly, and it's nice having a choice from the chain-choices. The menu is almost too large. I'd prefer a smaller one, with a few specialty dishes. But overall a nice change for a family meal. Clean, well lit, and in such a wonderful historic place. If you love history, this is the place.

Cajun meatloaf was obviously microwaved and most likely frozen and reheated. It was bland...so bland I put extra salt on it just to have SOMETHING to taste. Disappointing considering the cost
