I have eaten here so many times and it was always fantastic. I just ate here for dinner and ordered the tilapia. It was cooked perfectly, and the twice baked potato was perfect. The bread was warm and buttered and the chicken salad was moist and to die for. Next was the deserts, the three layer carrot cake was so good. I ordered three to go boxes and it was great. It has made it into my top five favorite restaurants. Totally coming back!
Most unexpected and best experience ever. We called 20 minutes before closing asking if they are still open. The owner, we assume, asked where we were and gave us very good direction and assured us that we will be accommodated as it would take about 25 minutes from where we were. The filet and the skirt steak were very delicious, flavorful and tender. The bread was amazing. Great taste and still warm. We will definitely go back if and when we are in the area.
4 stars and not 5 because of 2 things. 1) service good and friendly but not impeccable, 2) my medium rare steak was medium. I agree with other reviews that this is the best place in the area. I highly recommend it because of the small town feel. The restaurant is a double wide trailer and looks like a refurbished residential home. We ate in the dining room with only 4 other tables or so. The outside ambiance includes a dog pen and a shoddily finished patio area. The menu was large- probably too large if I were to ever open a restaurant- and the meat was fantastic. It felt like a part butcher shop/ part restaurant the way the waiter talked about the various cuts. My tips: gotta make reservations, and bring your own alcohol.
