If you want a big family meal this is the place to go. I had the homemade meat loaf plate and another friend had the turkey and dressing platter. Just like being at your grandmothers place. It was great food and more that you could eat in one sitting.

A pleasant surprise when we stopped in. Great breakfast with real hashbrowns (not the frozen stuff) and good selections on the menu. Judging by the crowd this is a popular place with locals and we met Jan - who signed one of her recipe books (for sale) - and made us feel at home. Burgers and steaks also great. Forget... More

Ate breakfast there after camping in the area for a few days. Really good home cooked food. Definitely a must if you like diner food. Large portions, friendly service, and great prices. Don't pass it up.

This is the second time we've eaten at this restaurant and really enjoy the home-style cooking. Portions are better than generous. I finished my burrito the next morning - and it was still excellent! Patty and Bob

we liked picking our table; we didn't pick our waiter...it averaged out to a win...good food, quick pay and on the road again.

Great place for breakfast! We ate there twice during our two week stay. Recommend splitting pancake order as they are huge! Everything cooked as ordered and service was great! Highly recommend.

Nice, nice place. Not fancy. Not trendy. Just good food with decent service and nice staff. Very family friendly

We met friends there for breakfast and was delightfully greeted by the owner of 24 years, Jan. she and her staff were awesome and so friendly. The food was fantastic and very worth the money I spent. I will be going back there for now on. Guarantee, folks, you will enjoy this restaurant and in meeting Jan.
