This is your average diner. I sometimes go here for breakfast when I 'm in the mood for pancakes. They make a really good coconut pancake. All their pancakes are good but those are my favorite. The prices are reasonable, typical for diners in the area.

Great menu, lots of options, usually very busy. Worthwhile wait, and food is almost always very good. Just cant pick waitresses, as most are very good, but a few make the visit less than worth it.

Got to my hotel around 10 and was starving. Figured since it was across the street I'd give it a try. Typical diner, nothing fancy. Had the bacon cheeseburger with fries. Don't know if it was because I was hungry, but it was really good. Thing was pretty big, enough for my wife to have a few bites.

Went to this restaurant last night with my husband and parents. It was very clean and the service was good. I had the cheeses teak quesadilla and it was very good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. I was impressed with the variety of food available on their menu.

When driving up to it my first impression was that it was a restaurant, but once walking in it was a dinner. The staff was fussing with each other because a person was given a larger table then she had and was mad that she was not given the chance to work together on it. The grilled Ham and cheese... More

We have eaten at this local restaurant plenty of times. This morning, however is the LAST. I met my mom there for breakfast (we do this once a month - first time here) and we were rushed and treated with bad attitudes. We were rushed when we first got there and then forgotten about when we both wanted some more... More

Excellent food and large variety. Very good service. Nice to have a local restaurant rather than a chain.

Barb and I looked online at their menu, and since we had our 3 grand daughters with us, it was a perfect choice. I will explain that later. With the three young girls, from 3 to 6 years of age, we arrived at 5:30 p.m. Saturday evening. We were greeted inside, and told them we had a party of 5.... More

Getting together with friends to exchange Christmas gifts. I had pancakes. The serving was good, also had coffee. Service was good, friendly waitress. My friends had different platters, all with no complaints. Enjoyed the get together.
