We found the place very friendly and accommodating to our sons peanut allergy. The food was good tasting and it also had decent portion sizes. We were driving through but if we had the opportunity we would eat there again.

Everyone raves about crappies and their ice cream. We decided to stop in and try it. Honestly I wasn't that impressed. I would have preferred ice cream from the grocery store. The service was friendly.

Same good food as always. Great shakes and ice cream to finish the meal. Good burgers and fries at reasonable prices.
