Good food and great prices.

This is an old style cafe. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The bar area is comfortable and friendly.

Just a casual place to go with flip flops and shorts! Food is tremendous. Hamburgers are really good and the fries the best. The prime rib and steaks are inexpensive and really good. The real sleeper is the Friday special when hey have seared Ahi tuna- you won't believe it! Super friendly staff makes it feel like home.

My husband, Tom, and I eat here a lot. We live in the DHS/Sky Valley area and make it a point to have breakfast or lunch here at least once a week, if not more. I recommend just about anything on this menu because they have a really good kitchen managed by capable staff. We usually split a meal because... More

I was with 3 colleagues at a conference and this place was an easy walk from our hotel. I felt as if I had walked back into 1978, but it was a fun walk. Service was a little slow due to a little back-up, but conscientious (we were pretty high maintenance....). The prime rib I had was really, really good... More
