We were in town for a few days and did not miss the all too often "free" breakfast. It was our daily breakfast stop. Great prices and great real food. Very nice to have this gem on site to start our days.

We had steak, or what was called steak on the menu. This was by fare the worst steak I have ever tried. The steak was overt cooked even though we ordered medium. Not to recommend at all.

This was the only choice in restaurants we had but, it was surprisingly acceptable. It isn't much to look at but, the food we ate was okay. Our waiter was the best thing about the place!
