Breakfast

Love this place. Go all the time. Know the staff and managers. It's like being at my grandmothers for breakfast. Large portions and good comfort food.

We have been twice - once for breakfast and once for lunch. Busy both times but good food and average service. Plenty on the plate - if you're not a big eater ask about lighter portions. It was nothing fancy, but I would go back.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. I was just expecting run of the mill food. But everything was terrific.

we went to dinner with friends so there was four of us. We were seated quickly and our order taken promptly. Drinks were brought. About 45 minutes into the wait the waitress refilled ice tea and quickly moved away. Hmmm we weren't in a huge hurry but that prompted us to look around where we observed diners that arrived after...

I had the pot roast,it was very tender and more than I could eat. The Resturant was very clean and the service was also very good. It is... More

Home style cooking at its bet. You never walk away hungry. Great variety of food. Come on the weekends when steaks and prime rib are their specials

This was our first time eating here. We each had the mini-volcano breakfast. Sausage had nice snap. Not overdone on the seasonings. Thick slice of bacon prepared just right. Pancakes were delicious. Our server was great. Kept the coffee topped off, made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Attentive without being pushy or too chatty. I liked that they offered... More

This was a great place to eat - it was packed and we had to wait to be seated for about 15 minutes but it was worth it after being on the road all day. It was within walking distance to the hotel and offered a good selection of food.
