The food was good if you want a comfort meal. It is nicely cooked and tasty. The atmosphere is plain but the service is great. Come here if you want a good satisfying home cooked meal.

The service left a lot to be desired - although I entered before 3 other tables they were served first. I had a salad with cold chicken breast - not sure what took so long. They did have GF clearly identified on the menu. Some interesting choices on the menu. I thought I would try it as it seemed busy... More

We are locals and have eaten there for years, we tolerated the poor chairs and decor because the food was very well presented and delicious. We were south for the winter and last night we noticed a big change, the presentattion was just ok, the food was not as good and seemed very precooked and basic, nothing like before, the... More

Our service was excellent, but the restaurant itself needs a good cleaning. The tables, chairs and floor all felt and looked filthy. The salad I ordered had hair in it and the 'grilled' chicken was microwaved frozen chicken with the fake 'grill' lines in it. The kids ordered burgers, which were ok but greasy. For a side salad, two burgers... More

Great family restaurant, good food, always hot, attentive waitresses and even Johnny!

All good any time. They are also... More

Very reasonably priced, great food. They use local produce and meats. They are willing to cook to your specification. Nice atmosphere. Great for family or social get togethers. Highly recommend it!

I am a local and was very disappointed on my the last two visits to this restaurant. The atmosphere is cozy, its basicslly an upscale diner, but my food was overcooked and it did not meet my standards for service or quality. I found the owner to be abrupt. I cant say I'm in any rush to return.

I arranged a friends birthday party here last evening - there were 12 of us. We had an excellent meal - the service was excellent. They have an India Meal Special on Wednesday evenings, which most of us had. i also pre-ordered a birthday cake - lemon - excellent! We were very pleased with the evening!

Went to this restaurant with my client on his recommendation. He said it had a solid reputation for good food for years, no matter what he ordered. I ordered halibut with side veggies and wild rice. It was prepared very well and we had great service. Affordable price and would return in a second!
