Stopped in after a day’s travel. Seasonal decorations, very clean, friendly service. Great for locals and travelers. Variety of menu items and daily specials. Will definitely be a stop on our next trip thru!

Never a disappointment. Friendly service and always a good meal. We typically meet for breakfast, but have gone for all meals. Great portions priced right.
