I stopped by Tuesday for lunch to get a quick look at what to expect with the reopening. Much of what diners remember is still there. The staff has many of the familiar faces, the menu was roughly the same and the interior looked to be a bit brighter with a lighter coat of paint and some new carpet.
It was their very first day open and they had some normal first day hiccups but were willing to make sure everybody was happy with their dining experience.
My lunch with my daughter consisted of their lunch special prime rib with a side of vegetable beef soup and applesauce. It was your typical diner-type dish. The sides were well-above average and the applesauce was scarfed away by my daughter. While I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by my prime rib, it did come out a little on the tough side.
What I really enjoyed was their cinnamon roll. It wasn’t your typical ooey gooey one with tons of icing. But their simple cinnamon roll far exceeded my expectation; it came out piping hot, soft and freshly baked. The inside was had a bright cinnamon burst that I loved.
My server was on top of everything from the moment I placed my order; she did a great job.
What appeared to be one of the owners went around from table to table asking for opinions and feedback. Knowing it was their first day, I told the owner everything from some of the issues I encountered when I first arrived to my prime rib. He thanked me for the feedback, apologized and assured me he wanted all the diners to be satisfied with their visit.
When I was getting ready to pay, a server told me they discounted my ticket by a large amount. It wasn’t something necessary, so I made sure to tip my server the remaining balance of what my ticket would have been and then some. It was a kind gesture and I wanted to return the favor given their sign to make things right.
While I wasn’t blown away with my lunch, I’ll definitely return after the staff gets into the swing of things to see how it goes. Everyone there was extremely nice and that’s enough to warrant a return sooner than later.
Here’s their menu:
