Solid Family Style Diner

My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner here. My clam strips were fried perfectly with a great, crisp batter and the coleslaw tasted fresh and homemade. The tartar sauce also tasted homemade, not out of jar. The sweet potato fries were crisp on the outside and piping hot. My husband loved his... read more

Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. A short stack of blueberry pancakes (2) is $7.00. Really, you have the nerve to ask that kind of price for less than average pancakes. I ate at the Waffle House in Myrtle Beach last week and I got a waffle, 2 eggs and orange juice for $5.00 with a lot better service.... More

This place is really good. I mostly come here for breakfast and no one in the area make better omelettes or home fries. The food comes out hot and delicious. For lunch, they have a great turkey club and their fries are better than McDonalds. I also love their fried seafood. Honestly, you can't go wrong with whatever you get.

All in all I am happy with my experience here. I went for breakfast and found the place packed on a Sunday morning with locals. Enjoyed an omelette at the bar with somewhat stale coffee and cheap orange juice. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Nothing stands out, everything is ok. I can go here or to any other diner... More

Stopped in for a quick bite in the morning. Enjoyed quick and friendly service. Ordered a bacon, egg, and cheese and it came out just right. This is exactly how a diner should be. Nothing imaginative, and just good basics.

The Greek Salad with grilled chicken is a nice dinner. Their coffee is not good at all, but the other fare is decent for a diner. Try the ice box cake you will love it. Service is good and friendly.

Nice spot, large menu of options and attractive and reasonably priced specials (prime rib with fries, salad and veg etc.) Expect to be greeted by a friendly staff in a comfortable "diner" setting. I enjoyed the opportunity to sit with a friend over dinner and experience good conversation and tasty food. If this place was local to my home, I'd... More

The food is very good but expensive for a diner. For the cost you can have a meal in a "real" restaurant
