Don't expect 5star dinning, what you get is good food for a reasonable price, the ladies are friendly and the service is quick, there is also a good variety on the menu.

This restaurant has a great family oriented environment! It's hard to find decent service these days but the staff here treat you like family. The food is excellent, and the service is always fast! I've found it hard to leave with anything other than a smile on my face.

Homestyle BBQ place with small town feel and decor. Ribs, mac & cheese, and baked beans were good. Not a big menu but satisfied our lunch craving.

Service was fantastic here but I wasn't completely blown away by this place, the food was average. Very big sizes but just not hitting it with the flavours. The homemade lemonade was absolutely delicious though
