Great service and great value. Home style food reminded me of being at Grandma's for dinner. Lots of food for the money, as others have said go hungry

Great place to go when you don't know what you want. They can even satisfy the gluten free crowd. My sister said she had the best shrimp there. Diner food with healthy options. What a concept!

If you like a nostalgic atmosphere, a very good menu, good food and good value .... this is the place for you ! We had corned beef sandwiches, grilled fish salads and cheese burgers. All the choices were good !!! (Good place to stop when going to/ from the airport.). Been there before and will return.
