Good morning Charlie,
Thank you for taking such good care of us on Friday evening for dinner. I wish the dog track had done as good a job. I left the track down $44. Everyone enjoyed how you related to us at the table. There is nothing like a good farm background to have something in common with regular folks. Paul F. said that the scallops were the best he had ever had prepared at a restaurant. I have to agree. Mine were excellent. I wish your wife and yourself the best of success in this business venture.
Thanks again,
-Dick L.

I enjoyed that we could get a delicious meal, complete with the works for under $10. The atmosphere alone is incredible, then we received our bill and were pleasantly surprised.
