"So this place just opened a month or two ago.  I've had several take home meals from here and all have been amazing.  The Shepards Pie is as good as it gets.  The Lasagna is maybe the best I have had anywhere.....and I've eaten at some of the best Italian restaurants on earth (you can too if you eat here....who would have figured in Stephenville!). Fantastic concept and super nice will not be disappointed!"

-Chad H.

As a realtor for the area, it is very nice to see and experience the family fun atmosphere, the great food and just the all around "country" lifestyle. The chickens roaming freely, kids laughing and having so much fun. The food was absolutely delicious, service was sweet and kind. This is a wonderful example of why I tell all my clients "This is the area you want to buy and live in". So much to offer!
