As an out of town guest don't let the outside deter you. I was skeptical on going in but so glad we did. The staff was super friendly & the food was delicious. I wish my town had a little place like this to eat. And breakfast is served all day.

We stop in here a lot, usually for breakfast. Well managed restaurant: always get good food & service. Good skillets and pancakes. Our family favorites include the "Florentine Eggs Bene", "Corned Beef Hash Skillet", and ":Greek Opa Skillet". (Never leave hungry.)

Food is always great, and they serve breakfast all day. Servers are typically personable, and the owners are extremely nice.

Depending on the waitress you get, your experience could be great or not so good. I have experienced both. You really need to go when they aren't busy in order to get the best experience. Their pancakes are great but sometimes the bacon is undercooked. Great omelets!

Excellent breakfast! Its like old home week if you sit at the bar. Lol. The waitresses are the best! Full of humor and so polite! The food and service are just so good. Coffee and food served promptly. Yes, they have grits. Lol. It is definitely my stop when in town.

We visit Grandma's for breakfast occasionally and have not been disappointed as of yet. They have lunch & dinner as well, but breakfast is our favorite

They have very good salads, and there potato soup is very good. Breakfast is ok, my toast is always burnt. Never ate dinner there.

The BBQ was excellent and the steamed vegetables. The dessert was very good as well. The price? If a business is going to stay in business, you can't give the food away. Its a great place to eat and you won't be disappointed. Going there for breakfast tomorrow! Yum

We stopped in for a snack/dessert and were happy with the food. One of us had cheesecake, one had boston cream pie, and one had a brownie sundae. They were all good, as was the coffee and the service. I'm not a fan of "home cooking" so I don't think I'd eat here for dinner, but grabbing lunch or an... More
