Cops favorite restaurant

It must tell you something when the table next to ours had 4 cops sitting at a 4 top, it was covered over with all the food they ordered, and they were just chowing down. These guys were really eating and they demolished that food. So there's your recommendation. We drove out to Shelbyville one... read more

Having eaten here several times, I can say the quality of food is hit or miss. If you go on an evening where everything is going well, you will enjoy a decent meal at a good price, but if it is an off night and your food is less than desirable, you may not even get an apology. Haven't been... More

High priced and food is ok. Had a crack head watress and she added the tip on the bill since we had 4 adults and a child. When it opened it was not bad but it gets worse every time i go there. I will not go back!!

What a fun place to go. Great staff and the food was great. We had pancakes and they were huge. My wife had a Hawaiian waffle and she was very pleased. Only complaint was the strawberry's on the waffle had been frozen and not completely defrosted. Great service and price was a bit more than chains but worth the money.... More

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!
