Old Style Diner with Average Food

Went for Sunday lunch and had 2 different burgers. Service was a bit slower than expected, and prices were average to any big name sit down restaurant. The pies, which I assume they are more known for, are ok, and worth trying. Would suggest getting heated and a la mode.

Had a ranch burger and a couple of IPA Beers. Very pleasant service. The burger was laden with bacon and cheese and onion rings. So far as Burgers go I'd say pretty damn good. The IP Sockeye Beer was the best dark beer I have tasted outside of England or Ireland and highly recommended. Cost for 2 beers and the... More

We have been there over many years, because it is a sit down style. But the food is not consistent it quality as well as the service. If you have things wrong they don't seem to care and offer any kind of solution, yuck

We had our final meal @ this restaurant before we headed back to WA. Family, big table, & kids. Waitress managed to confuse a couple orders, but the food was excellent. Some ordered off menu,others had the Sunday buffet. Overall big servings, good food. Great people too. Happy to help you out & the other diners were fun too.

The waitress didn't have time for us. She wasn't rude but walked away from us several times when we were still trying to ask questions. The food was so so. I had the salad bar. The soup was good. No tomatoes or any type of meat and butterscotch pudding and jello for dessert. There was an ample fruit selections. My... More

I would recommend this restaurant if your eating in, however we ordered take out as we were staying at the hotel next door and had pets we couldn't leave. Granted it was a Friday night and they were very busy, but they didn't seem skilled at the take out procedure. Looked like they had a great salad bar, and as... More

We went here there with our son who lives in the area. The place needed a good scrubbing... very much a greasy spoon type of place. My wife had the breakfast buffet and liked the selection. The food quality definitely needs improvement. I ordered an omelette which was a mistake. Thin gray greasy eggs rolled tight around the ingredients does... More
