Our first night in town, we needed something to eat. We saw this restaurant on our way in, and figured we would take a peek.

We parked across the street in a municipal lot, which after 6pm, was free. Parking on-site is limited to about 10 cars.

The wait was about 15 minutes, which was fine for us. They called us in and we were seated in the rear of the restaurant. The table was neatly appointed with a white table cloth and a white napkin, while the dress was casual.

The waitress...let's just say left much to be desired. It took her a good five minutes to even acknowledge us. When she did, she didn't introduce herself, didn't tell us the specials, just asked for our drink order, and if we were ready to order food. We had JUST sat down.

She returned with our drinks and swept by with bread, and we didn't hear from her until the food came out. Even then, we didn't really hear from her. Her demeanor was cold the whole time.

On the plus note, the food was EXCELLENT! Large portions and quality, hearty food.

The check then came. I handed her two $20's. She then took off with it, and came back a few moments later. "Um, the check is X and you only gave me one $20." I told her, no, I gave her two. She insisted that I was trying to stiff her, and believing I only gave her one. My girlfriend had witnessed that I did take two out of my wallet, and hand her two. She left and retraced her steps. She found it...she had DROPPED IT!

Overall, I would recommend this place. The atmosphere was nice, the food was tremendous, and I can only believe that other than that one waitress, the service is good.
