The restaurant is in a convenient location with plenty of nearby parking. It is housed in a converted farmhouse and barn, with stone work from the original structures augmented by complementary modern architectural features well designed to harmonize with the original elements, including a gabled roof and ceiling with no sound control measures built-in. The noise level indoors is very... More

My family likes to come here because they have a large and unique menu. The food is normally good. However, our last trip was very different. Cold chicken fried steak and brisket that was tough and tasted day old. Not good. I think some more emphasis needs to be placed on the food quality. The service is always outstanding.

The server was excellent and the drinks took some time. I ordered the special prime rib medium rare and an IPA beer. The prime rib was medium when it arrived which was acceptable. But the beer at $6+ dollars isn't a fair price. I understand you don't have to drink an adult beverage but that's a little steep. I just... More

I Don't mind waiting for a table if I can have a drink in bar while waiting, but no mechanism for doing this. Unless you can get a seat at the bar - which is not possible today - you cannot get a drink. So, twiddling our thumbs waiting for a table for an hour. While many tables sit empty... More

Apparently there has been a change in ownership, and it's definitely not for the best. It's lost the "family" atmosphere. Service was slow; did not appear to have enough staff, food was not served hot. A complete opposite from the previous visits. Very sad.

Second time we have eaten here. Wanted to try the beef ribs and they were delicious! Ribs were meaty and very tender. Service was a bit slow according to our server he had to tend the bar and wait on tables on not in his section. Ladies bathroom needed attention. We will return because the food is good!

The food was very good. Served family style by a kind and attentive wait staff. We did not feel rushed even though the dining room was busy.
