This review is strictly on the above item. My husband & I had heard the bear claws were really good here. We are wintering here from Indiana and wanted to try one. We stopped in and purchased one to take home. Well we were very disappointed. It was definitely not worth $6.00. It wasn't flavorful at all. It was flaky... More

We usually get breakfast here and usually satisfied we went for dinner and ordered the special prime rib. This was the thinist toughest peace of meat we were ever served anywhere, and the worst part was the bill was $38.00 for this crap they served.

Stopped in to eat breakfast while vacationing in the Phoenix area. Wanted to try this place after reading some reviews on it and we're glad we did. The atmosphere was great (casual) and the service was excellent. The food was like home cooking and very good and the portions were plentiful. Will definitely eat there again.

Some of us had breakfast and/or lunch. Long wait, on a Sunday, but worth it. Never had been there before, but food was really good.

The service was great. The food had good quality, but the music was so loud that it caused all of the customers to have to talk louder. It was crazy.

We ate breakfast here again during our annual visit to PHX and we enjoyed it again. Great food and coffee and specialty "newspaper" menus!

Returned to have a late lunch after a long period away. as usual, the place is a local favorite, and there were five or six parties waiting for a table. Still, we were all seated within 15 minutes. The servers were rushing around, bringing hot plate from the kitchen and cleaning off tables and booths. We chose our food from... More
