Valentine's dinner. Excellent food; excellent waitress. Only there when needed, but always there when needed. Rare to find this kind of service.

the service was great! the place in nice. We did not care for our entrée food. The appetizer was good. For the price, the food quality was not worth it to us. We will not be back and prefer a place in Marion who has comparable prices, the same good service but way better food.

We went for a very special occasion (celebrate husbands new job). As he was preparing to take his first bite, he discovered about an 18 inch long hair laying across from his steak to his potato. The server asked if he could bring him something else, but it was too late.....not only his appetite, but also his entire mood for the evening was completely ruined. He did not eat, and his meal was removed from the bill. For the 2 remaining individuals to have a modest meal, no alcohol and 1 appetizer, the bill was still $70. Very disappointing to pay this much for an evening that was 110% ruined by hair in the food.

We dine here frequently. The food is quite good for the price. It fills a nice place between fast food and fine dining.

Lovely dinner. Wonderful service provided for our multigenerational group of seven. Salmon, scallops, steak, and pasta were all well prepared and presented.

Took the family there after my son graduated from SIU. I wanted something a little nicer and this fit the bill.

There aren’t many choices in Carbondale for dining that isn’t a food chain. For that, this restaurant is a good choice. The service and food were great. The restaurant is a little dingy, but they dim the lights so that helps. The light fixture above our table had cobwebs. The food was delicious but very limited in choice. Our server said that the chef limited the menu because they expected to be busy for graduation celebrations. You couldn’t even chose your vegetables- everyone received potatoes and green beans. Overall, the food and service was good and I am glad they offer something different and more intimate than restaurant chains.
