American Restaurant
$$
“Decades old "Supper Club" serving excellent steaks, prime rib, seafood, local fish and cocktails. Try the spinach salad, twice-baked potatoes...and Brand Alexanders with just about anything on the menu. This is the "go to" place in town for special occasions. A bit pricey for the area but there is a "lite side" menu which offers smaller portions and is less expensive.”
