Stopped by midday on our Big 2014 Road Trip. The staff made us all feel very welcome. The steak special was good, and the family enjoyed the kids' spaghetti and all-day breakfast. Desserts were tasty and very reasonably priced.

The steak was small for the price. It did have an okay taste. Wi-Fi was available but to slow to use. I might eat at this place... More

Very clean for a all town diner. Service was a bit slow, but not too bad. Food was very good, high-quality, and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
