They have excellent open faced roast beef and mashed potatoes, steaks and their famous onion rings. Great place and down to earth.

We finished our house tour and decided to grab a bite here. It's a small yet rustic place with lots of character. We ordered a small onion ring place, and glad we did because the table next to us (party of 8) got the large....More
