Good, simple food at reasonable prices – I love this place. Sadly, my girlfriend does not, so my visits here are limited. She needs every meal to be over-the-top spicy. I like spicy food too, but I also like clean and simple. The Main Course seems to be all about clean and simple food. I wish I could go more but the boss won't let me!
I've eaten here about six times over the last few months. The food is always great - simple food in a home-cooked style without much flash. I love all kinds of food, but when I'm craving a simple meal, this is the first place I think of. The spices are always subdued but appropriate, and the food always tastes fresh and clean. I know that "fresh and clean" is a very odd way to describe a meal, but you might find yourself thinking the same thing if you eat here.
The decor of the restaurant is like the food - simple. There's nothing here that will impress a girl on the first date. They don't sell alcohol, but there is no corkage if you bring your own.
They also offer frozen entrees that you can cook at home. I highly recommend trying one of these. For $7-$8, you can get a frozen pot pie, lasagna, or other similar entree that is significantly better than the frozen crap you can buy in a grocery store.
My first and last time here – A few years ago I stopped in and ordered a salad and coffee. Place had 5 stars from restaurant critic Elmer Dills, but was deerted. From my seat I could observe the older woman in the kitchen mixing my salad. She appeared to be the owner, apparently part of an East European couple. I saw her drop the salad fork on the floor, pick it up and continue mixing - WITHOUT WASHING THE FORK!!!! I regret that I didn't say something, but I was so angered, I just left money for the coffee canceled the salad and left.
If Mr. Dills knew this story he would deduct a few stars. I have never returned. A p[ity, because I was prepared to like this little cafe.
Great little place!!! – Beautiful interior, great food, no alcohol, good price for the amount and quality of the food you get. Would recommend it to friends.
Thanks Mom!! – I dragged my friend to this place as a last minute alternative to the horrid KFC next door and it was aweseome! The decor is very friendly and gives you a welcoming and down to earth feeling. There is not many other customers and I am not sure why.
The beef shank was OK, but the Turkey dinner is spectacular!
I will now be telling the truth when saying I have had melt in the mouth turkey!
Comfort food served on a large scale, with plenty of gravy. – In Short
This restaurant is decorated with feminine ivy-printed wallpaper juxtoposed with black and purple chairs and tables. Coddling servers may cluck their tongues if you don't clean your plate. Hearty, gravy-soaked fare is the specialty at this friendly eatery. Fresh roast turkey dinner comes in a generous portion with all the fixings, and garlic shrimp are served on penne pasta in garlic sauce. Desserts are homemade; warm apple-peach pie with biscuit-dough crust is a specialty.
