Anxiously awaiting reopening

Great place for nice menu, friendly service,and nice atmosphere. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Feels like being with family. Has been closed for remodeling for almost 2 YEARS now. Anxious to see it reopen!

Unfortunately this place has been closed for over a year. This was our favorite place to have breakfast. They have been under construction for soooooo long we had to find another place to have breakfast. But, the food is good here and the service was excellent. Maybe will se you this year?

Good food, good prices, sometimes crowded. Remodeling now, and usually closed in the summer. They have the best onion rings I've ever had, crisp and sweet onions.

Have been to Anita's twice this week. The first time it followed a cocktail party which left a group of us wanting just a light bite and stopped there. There were six of us and someone had grilled chicken breast, another meatloaf and the rest burgers and everyone enjoyed it. The following night ended up there unexpectedly as we were... More

We kept driving by this restaurant while vacationing in the area. The parking lot was always packed in the AM- so we decided to try it for breakfast. It was a pleasant experience: good food, service decent, and we did not have a wait. We thought $10. /each for a standard breakfast was a bit (not extremely) steep.

We had heard from so locals that this was "the" place for breakfast. There were 5 of us, so we had a wait of 10 minutes or so- not bad at all. I ordered an omelette with spinach and mushrooms. It was browned on both sides and tasted like a griddle that needed cleaning. It also had added tomato -... More
