I have passed by this restaurant so many times, even as a child. I had assumed that it was a steak house for some reason...probably because I'm a silly goose. The many complimentary reviews on TripAdvisor prompted me to go. I was so excited! I loved walking into the lobby that holds a gift shop and I could appreciate the... More

It's open for breakfast & lunch only. We had specials that listed that it came with soup/salad. Well we got both plus a dish of ice cream for desert. I had a 1/2 corn beef sandwich that's had 1/2 pound of meat. The wait staff were friendly and courteous. Been there forever and probability will be there for a while... More

The food we got was really good I had bacon and eggs and my mom had a huge veggie omelet. But the damn flies were all over the place I counted 17 on the table next to ours! They ruined my appetite!!

Very fast service and the food comes out quickly. A nice breakfast spot that I would visit again. Not the cheapest breakfast in town, however the quality of the food would justify the higher prices. Older ambiance with a nice gift shop in the entrance.

We had breakfast on our way home from our trip to Oakland. My husband and I both had the Irish eggs benedict. It was delicious!! The waitress was very good and very nice. She knew when to refill our drinks. It was a good experience and a good value.

While the decor of plastic flowers isn't the best in the world, the food is great and the service is top notch! We visited on a Friday and one of the specials was a sweet potato waffle. It was delicious & very big so there was no way I could eat it all! Our server was extremely attentive and didn't... More

We went to this restaurant twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. The breakfast was horrendous, but the place was busy and is in such a good location that we thought we'd give it a second chance. It was just as awful for lunch. I don't know how people can rave about this place. It is worse than the... More

If you want some good food -- generous portions at that -- go to the Black Oak Restaurant. A lot of people have made it a regular watering hole. The staff is congenial and friendly-- and the service is personal. You are made to feel welcome and at home. The prices are reasonable - variety of selections excellent. It is... More
