Great meal in Vandalia, IL! Small and unassuming on the main street in town, the food is excellent and the atmosphere quiet & enjoyable. We had a pork loin with marsala and mushrooms sauce and a BBQ pork steak meal that were prepared perfectly. Highly recommended!

We were just passing through and happened to call.. Absolute awesome. The hostess Alison was simply amazing. Our waitress Lindsey was also great. They were very personable and we called and they gave us a reservation for 10 minutes later. The food is amazing and their desserts are to die for. When we pass through again my family will ... read more

Great place to have a nice meal. The steaks are great especially the beef medallions with the champagne sauce. The ribeye is also very good as she sources her meat locally. Lunch here is good as well and served fast if you're in a hurry. Could hardly do better than this in Vandalia.

Food was fantastic but the service was even better! The waitress & manager/owner treated us so well, had a nice homey feel. We absolutely loved the tuna & salmon, and the Alfredo was some of the best we ever had. Perfect place to stop on our long road trip!

On a business trip headed home to Rogersville MO from Indianapolis. Got off the interstate for a “break”. Decided we were hungry so found this place on Google. I had the Long Boat Shrimp with the medium spicy Sriracha sauce. It was spicy but fantastic. I will be back next time I come that way.

Two weary homeward bound Manhattanites ( the pickiest!) chose this as the only non fast food option. Our expectations were low but the food was good and the helpings large. Flowerpot bread was cute but somewhat sweet. Didn’t have room for dessert.

Had the chicken wrap and a cup of the potato soup, both were delicious! Only downside was that I wasn't expecting the wrap to be spicy, so it took me by surprise and took my breath away for a moment (it doesn't take much spice to do that to me). But I finished every bite! I'll be back again for it!

I was very impressed with the food and service here. Vast menu including steaks, bbq ribs, (prime rib on the weekends?), seafood, Italian, burgers.  Reasonably priced cocktails and wine.  Chicken Parmesan was delicious, a little crunch with cheesy, garlicky, buttery goodness, (they present it with a white sauce).Fettuccine Alfredo de ... read more

The locals were raving about this place, had to give it a try. Found one of the best BBQ pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had! Totally unexpected given the classy decor and Sinatra playing softly in the background. Ticket was under $10 for meal and drink, perfect amount of food for lunch, not too much not too little. The space is sma ... read more

Easy to pass by, but don't. Very cozy inside, if alittle dated. The food though... Honestly the best ribeye sandwich I've ever had!

On 7/2/19, I was on way from Florida to my "roots" in central Illinois and decided to get off the interstate for the last three hours of my drive, heading up Route 51.  It was great to drive through the heartland, through the small towns all decked out for the Fourth of July, with the pots of flowers and flags flying.  I needed some ... read more
