It was a nice place to go to, the outside at night, looked really cool with the lights. The ice cream was good but pricey. All in all, it was ok tho

We take the family here from teenagers to grandparents. Breakfast all day, burgers homemade meatloaf, fish, chicken & waffles. Sort of like a local cracker barrel but with better desserts. One of a kind ice cream desserts. The king is the Kitchen Sink - a banana split on steroids that our family of 5 can share.

The service and food was excellent. Portions were generous. My son had the Tuscon Benedict and I have eggs and bacon. Both were very good!

Family friendly and good sized portions. We had a great dessert, a banana split which came in a miniature kitchen sink! The food was good and we would definitely eat there again!

My parents who are in their 700 love this place. I took my dad for Father's Day. He loves that he can use a ton of coupons and loves the food. The food is ok but not that great.

Their vegetable soup was best I have had, salad was perfect size with fruits on it and tasty dressing. Waitress was caring, hot tea came together lots of choices of tea bags. Lots of menu, hope I was more hungry. Located just front of Quality Inn.
