Home made food.. Family environment.

We really wanted to like this place but after our third visit, first two were not good, we haven't changed our mind. It was just after the lunch crowd had left so I don't know why the waitress was as grumpy as she was. We all in our party commented that she wasn't very friendly. She served our food and... More

I didn't get the best service, but it was a busy Saturday morning. The food was very good. No problem parking on the street. Easy to find.

It's in an old but nicely renovated building withe original tin sealing. Food is very good but service is a hit and miss.

Usually a wait on Sunday after church, but well worth waiting for. Once seated, the drinks and food are to you fast, hot and delicious. Servers are fun and efficient. Almost hate to give it a good review because it'll generate more people and a longer wait, but to be fair, you have to try it.
