Always good people running the place. They treat their employees right. You can tell because some of them have been there for years. The food is great and as far as the cleanliness, well, It looked like they kept the important stuff clean to me, it just looked a little worn by age , if you ask me. It's an old building, what do you expect. They always had the best roast beef in town and I miss going there once to twice a week for the BBC or Reuben or Moonlite Burghoo (sp?)

I sure hope the Bryant's get it going again. Good luck to them.

“I don’t care what you say, if your dog comes at me while I’m walking, he’s going to end up in the burgoo with all the cats that cross my path.”

Maybe you never heard of it. Burgoo, pronounced BUR-goo. It’s a three-meat and vegetable stew (don’t forget the 100-proof Kentucky bourbon) out of a Kentucky tradition, historians tell us, that is often served as a part of celebrations.

Even in Naples, where it’s said it arrived with Kentuckians in the early 1900s.

The Naples Historical Society is refining the idea a bit by throwing a Burgoo Bash Cocktail Party to raise money for its efforts. A Naples Historical Society restored film circa 1930, “Bob West’s Burgoo,” will also be shown.

The burgoo party is scheduled 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday with a dinner following at Palm Cottage, 137 12th Ave. S. Tickets are $200 and $500, the latter includes dinner. Information: 261-8164
