Got the best steak I've had in the area, service was good. I heard really good things about their breakfast as well. Looking forward to returning. The service was so personable and sweet and fun.

We went on a weeknite with friends. We were all happy with our food and the portions and prices are very fair. The resturant is in a former Ford Dealership and provides and interesting atmosphere along with very good food. We will be back.

Welcome to the comfort of great home cooking! This restaurant is based in the old Ford Garage on Lake Lillian's main street. The staff is quite friendly and the menu, along with the prices, are hard to beat. On Friday night one of the specials was "all the shrimp we could eat" for $9.25.
