A must place to dine at while in the Wheeling area.

We checked this place out on Tripadvisor before going and it definitely lived up to its billing. There is a family-run atmosphere to this restaurant and it is clear that many of the customers are regulars, and familiar to the staff. The food was fantastic and the portions were immense.

It's a big restaurant with everything on the menu you could possibly want. Skillets are yummy and the meat is cooked perfectly to how you ask it. It's a little crowded in there with tight seating, but what can you expect with a place this popular? Hostess was a little gruff for a late Saturday morning, and the waiter could... More

I used to be a regular here five years ago or so. After a bad meal that sickened me, I stopped coming here. But my dad INSISTED we eat breakfast here, and being the obedient son, I hesitantly agreed. Now I have a reason to tease him about his choice in restaurants, and he agrees with me. The food is,... More

I've been dining here since they opened. The food is always fresh and delicious and even though it gets noisy, I can still have a conversation with the person I'm with. Usually I eat breakfast but lunch is good too.

Service was on the slow side as it was quite busy. Food was tasty asked for lemon for my water never got it. Also I asked for a small orange juice and it was really small for $2.95 pretty steep. Quite noisy

One of my favorite places for breakfast. The management are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. I like the Pancake Parfait. They have many skillets, pancakes, omelets, and other breakfast foods. I also enjoy there salads when there in the afternoon.

The spring omelette was superb! Potatoes and hashbrows also good...pancakes were unfortunately very dry so the kids didn't finish them and the service was great!

Very busy like a typical breakfast joint. Pancakes were dry but eggs were good. If you have kids and order pancakes you can split the order for 4 kids!

This restaurant has a very nice feel to it. It's not too big and the ceilings are low so it makes for a quieter atmosphere. There's a fire place which is nice in the winter. The food is priced fairly and it's very good. It's only open for lunch and breakfast . The parking lot is the main problem. It's... More

Our initial visit was on a busy Sunday morning. We had about a ten minute wait and it was worth it. A very large menu of breakfast items caught or eye. Service was attentive but not hovering. The Mediterranean omelet with hash browns and wheat toast was one of the best I've enter eaten. My wife greatly enjoyed the House... More
