Have only been here for lunch and have never been disappointed. Good menu which they seem to change up regularly. On this last visit, I had the cream of asparagus soup and wedge salad. Delicious!! Recommend eating here!

My sons and husband loved the soups. All homemade and you can get unlimited for $15. I had a salad and it wasn't the greatest. This is a place reminded me of my Grandma's cooking. Great homemade pies too!
