Just a note to thank you for a delicious meal and great service. What a wonderful family you have. It was a little crowded with my large group but we made it fine and had plenty of time. I will for sure recommend your restaurant to others. We will probably be doing other shows in Steelville and will remember you for the future. Thank you again for opening just for our group on a Saturday.
