I've never done in, always get my food to go for co-workers. I always get the two egg special for everybody - 3 buttermilk pancakes, 2 eggs, and a side of potatoes for under $4.50 each - less than $20 including tax for four people! We are always stuffed, and it tastes just as good of not better than IHOP!... More

Very good breakfast, taste like your grandmas country cooking. The service was quick, friendly, and the waitress made helpful suggestions on the menu because everything sounded so delicious it was hard to choose.

Simple good home cooking reminded me Cracker Barrel. A local hot spot with plenty of locals. Simple menu layout with very reasonable prices. We'd definitely eat here again soon. Only complaint no alcohol and tucked away a little hard to find.

Despite bad reviews we decided to give it a try as it was nearby. 3 of us had omelettes and they were really good and so were the pancakes. Yes it's a little dated inside, but our food was good. There was only was 1 server working and she was rushed off her feet, but she was friendly and helpful.... More

Hadn't been there in awhile so decided to try it - everything was just ok. The eggs were fine but the pancakes tasted like something you could cook in toaster. The waitress was very friendly and quick. This place could use a little update and cleaning of cobwebs and open back up refreshed and ready. For now it's just ok

I cannot say this was the worst place I had ever eaten but had there been a McDonalds next door I would have been much better off going there. The staff was nice and we certainly did not have to wait long. The staff are extremely talkative as in way too talkative. The eggs were not very tasty but were... More

We went here on Sunday March 15, 2015. We wanted a good breakfast to start our day and thought this would be perfect. Upon walking in my wife and I both got the same sense of TOTAL RUDENESS!! We sat down and the RUDENESS continued. ALL the waitresses were RUDE and down right crappy. We ordered our breakfast but I... More
