Breakfast

No fancy haute cuisine here for breakfast. Gold old comfort food. Chicken fried steak for me. Fast and friendly service. Large portions for a reasonable price. Loved their coffee. I'll stop by again when I'm in Alexandria this summer.

Stopped here after spending a weekend at nearby Arrowwood Resort for Sunday Brunch. We were 11 including 6 grandkids aged 10 and under. We were seated in minutes even though we were a larger group, although I did overhear that they were not as busy as usual for a Sunday--perhaps because it was 20 below zero that day and many...

Called ahead to reserve a table for our group of 7 people. Got the best place in the house. Table was ready with water carafes, coffee cups, coffee, syrup, butter, & menus. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Excellent value for the amount of food we got.

So glad we got off the expressway and went stopped at the Traveler's Inn in downtown Alexandria. Alexandria has the best "main street". It's a wide downtown with plenty of parking. Traveler's Inn started small and kept expanding keeping the old counter, booths and tin ceilings. Friendly, fast and efficient server. It was hard deciding what to order, because everything... More

Remember the downtown restaurant that you used to go to when you were a little kid with your mom and dad? Well, this is it! Not only do you get home made food for breakfast and lunch, the deserts and cookies are home made and your tastebuds will remember what "grandma" made when you were young! Plus the owners usually...

This place used to be great. They must have changed hands or something. Nee menu and new food? Hot turkey sandwich was not good. Pile everything on one piece of bread. Sour cream raisin pie wasn't the same as it used to be. Was disappointed by this visit. Probably won't be back.

We visited this restaurant at lunch. However, we ordered breakfast items. All of the food we ordered was excellent. One had the blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup. And, two in our group had bisquits and gravy with eggs. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. The food was very good. We would definitely go to this restaurant again when we... More

We ate here late evening. Not best choice. Salad bar minimal. Had good cod meal. Others had sausage n sauerkraut and liked it. Think it might be better earlier in day
