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.

One of our favorite places in Vandalia. Always get great Prime rib and there flower pot bread with honey butter is awesome. We love the small quaint atmosphere and super friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Wonderful meal and relaxing outing. Tried the Beef Medallions and Chicken Parmesan. Food was very good, service was spot on, and the restaurant was very clean. Food prep time was not lengthy. A very pleasant surprise!

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.

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.

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!
