The food was good—thick, juicy steaks, as the name implies. It wasn't very crowded when we went, so it was pretty quiet, only a couple of other patrons were there (but the restaurant may have been close to closing for the night). I ordered the small filet mignon as opposed to the larger one because the meat was pretty pricey. The price difference between a small steak and a larger one may have been around five dollars—I wanted to taste it. They sell souvenir t-shirts, which I thought was neat, so I purchased one for my partner. Credit cards are accepted.

Village Inn Pancake House Restaurant is a Denny's-type restaurant. The food is good. The restaurant is next to a bus stop, so passengers will hopefully have a break long enough to eat at this establishment.

Hot Springs Lodge & Pool

Attraction | "Hot Springs Lodge & Pool"

Quote:
Hot Springs Lodge & Pool is a very large outdoor pool where you can soak in its mineral waters. You can feed quarters into a slot to create invigorating bubbles in the pool. You can fill jugs with free mineral water outside before coming through the entrance. I met a woman there and we had a nice conversation—she comes to use the facility several times a year.

The entry fee is $10.25. If you don't have a swimsuit, they'll rent one to you for $3, a towel for $2, and a lounge chair for $4.
