Consistent good food

Great place for breakfast and lunch. You order and pick up at the back, which is awesome because you don't have to worry about tipping. Food is always consistently good. Always the same guys cooking in the back and they're super friendly and efficient. There's parking on the street but also a lot... read more

My friends an I try to eat here at least twice a month, for the past four years. Some travel more than 15 miles to have breakfast here and enjoy the athmosphere. My wife and I come here for breakfast and then a day of shopping.

I have only eaten breakfast here, which is just average. It is cafeteria style where you stand and wait while your order is quickly cooked. There are 5 breakfast specials that are rather inexpensive. I thought the eggs and potatoes were too greasy but the portions are generous.

"The Restaurant" is a cafeteria style restaurant that specializes in good, down-home cooking fast and well priced. For breakfast you order directly from the cook and see it cooked right in front of you! The portions are very ample, the taste is like home-made and the prices are very reasonable. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and they even have... More

We have been going to The Restaurant for many years. I almost always get the veal parm. and it is very good. My husband always seems to get steak and he likes it as well. From what I hear the breakfast is very good as well, but I have never had it there. My kids will get the burgers and... More

This is a cafe style place where you order through a line, and pick what you want. They can make you stuff as well on the spot. But overall the food is great and large portions. Management and staff are great and know the menu.

Big changes had occurred at The Restaurant recently. While breakfast and lunch were still served "cafeteria style" with special orders delivered to your table, late afternoon saw a change in that it was turned into a fancier place to eat with waitresses and a different menu and a little higher prices. The family restaurant was gone after lunch...pretty much. Earlier... More

Breakfast cafeteria style still remains their best offering. The new set up was not thought out well, the line cuts through and blocks off a couple of tables vs. the old way which was against the wall - design flaw difficult for the people eating at those tables and the people in line. The cafeteria style lunch/dinner is still good,... More

We went for dinner expecting to have some good Greek food. But no more. It is now an Italian restaurant with no cafeteria style. Now a sit down place that has a bar type atmosphere at least at dinner. Homemade pasta was good, but was looking forward to Lamb Shish Kabab.
