food was good, staff was attentive....but.....

arrived about an hour before closing on a Friday nite. Restaurant was pretty empty and they were cleaning up. Salad bar was lacking a few things, (salad for example), but they were more than willing to put fresh out, even so close to closing. Wife had Fried Walleye...very good, I had the 12 oz... read more

If I were rating just restaurants in Jacksonvile I would be a solid 4. However, I am rating restaurants in general and that is why I had to go with the 3 overall. They have a very good, small salad bar. The restaurant is clean. They serve all three meals each day.

Went this morning with my family for breakfast around brunch time. Everyone had food that they enjoyed very much, hot and fresh. Ordered a regular pancake for our 2 year old son and they surprised us with a Mickey Mouse pancake with fruit for the face features!!! Our son LOVED it and it was a very nice touch. The atmosphere...

We ordered our food and the service was slow and lousy. A family member of mine ordered Eggs Benedict in which she was the first person to order. My family member was the last to be served after all of my family members were nearly finished eating. (10 member party). I would not recommend this eating establishment to anybody!

I am far from a picky man and I've loved tuning into said television programs. When I entered this restaurant, I was think much like Gordon Ramsey (or Robert Irvine). The decor was dated and old. While there was no ripped or torn seating from what I saw, there was dust on the light fixtures and the ceiling fan (which... More

I had breakfast at this family restaurant while in Jacksonville. The food was good (average), but the price was right. The waitress was pleasant. The service was a bit slow. I saw a couple of different customers wait to pay, or to be seated. I would return to the restaurant when I return to Jacksonville.

Excellent service two out of last three trips there. Prices are good. Food is average but good. The decor could use an update but it would change the atmosphere of the place. Good place to get a decent breakfast at a decent price.

Found 3 pieces of hair in our food, waitress responds not hers, must be the cook. Terrible customer service from staff/owner seemed not to care to for customer satisfaction. Will never go back/want all to be warned!

The food is very good. The staff are all friendly especially if you like to interact with them. Prices are reasonable. They have a salad bar with 2 chooses of soups. You get your food quickly.
