Fined for business meeting in the restaurant. The service was very quick and my entree salad "the Norfolk" was Devine! Served with celery bread and was all around a pleasant experience.

I haven't been here for a while, since the restaurant was taken over by the owners of Whitey's. The BLT was enormous and very good. Excellent value. Service was prompt and friendly. The wait staff remembered the person I was with, and knew his favourites.

We were there a week ago. It was terrible from start to finish. We should have turned around and walked out when we were placed at a table with table cloth stained with tomato. Restaurant is run down and not inviting. My husband ordered their buffet and "fresh -- just off the spit, chicken"!!! I ordered a hamburg and french-fries... More

Change for the worse. Not clean. Breakfast is ok, not great. Simple sandwich or the like not terrible but nothing special. Slow service. No originality.
