Great food for a roadside bar experience

A nice little road side bar with excellent food. Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Try the sweet potato fries. There are two sides to the establishment. The restaurant side and the bar side. Live music on weekends.

Good down home food for breakfast. Nothing fancy but well made. They seem to get a bit overwhelmed with the crowds that come in so that could be improved a bit.

This restaurant is a classic diner, but the food is great, the service is also pretty great. There is an inside dining area, and you can dine outside but it's basically next to a main road - so it's not the most desirable outdoor dining. I do enjoy going to this restaurant though, because the breakfast and lunch is very... More

The Purple Place is doing something right. Each of our several visits were amidst large crowds. The staff does a good job of making the wait tolerable, seating within 15 minutes or so. The wait staff is down to earth as are the prices. Good food served with a smile.

Great food (we had hamburgers with onion rings and sweet potato fries) and lots of it! Great service - our waiter was Casey and he was attentive without being overly so. We sat in the bar area - lots of tables and plenty of seats at the bar itself. There's also another indoor area but it closes at 2:30ish. You... More

We'd always heard this place was good. We tried it for the first time on a busy Saturday. We arrived with a group of 17 people. The hostess was extremely accomodating. We had a bit of a wait, but ultimately we were all able to sit together. The waitstaff provided excellent service also. They were very efficient and friendly. Meals... More

We try to eat here at least once a week. Breakfast selections include an outstanding salmon benedict and the best chicken fried steak and gravy in the area. Portions are large and easily shared. For lunch the burgers are great as are the paninis. Try the onion rings and you wont be dissappointed.

Always great service and a good variety of choices. Yummy Patty Melts and large salads. LOVE the Bloody Mary, even without the alcohol cuz they're spicy and they dress it with a lot of veggies too!

Casual environment, Bar and restaurant. Great for simple outings. Sit in or outside. There is a restaurant and a bar side inside the restaurant. Salads are great, burgers very good, and BLT is one of my favorites. Ask for additional dressing for your salad if it does not come on it. Very busy on Fridays and it would be hard... More
