Good pancakes

This place is a great spot for breakfast. We go here on the weekends and it can be crowded so get there early.

Three times the server asked what type of cheese I wanted on my American Cheese omelet. He made it with Swiss. He lied when I complained and said I asked for Swiss (which I don't like). The owner was too busy to talk to me. He told me to my face to come back tomorrow to speak to him. He... More

First and most importantly, support a local great restaurant with an owner who knows everyone's name! Peter also supports the community during holidays and the staff donates their time and meals. His kindness to the seniors equals the support to the local kids who go there to enjoy a well cooked home style meal, that will leave you full. The... More

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 at the end of the block

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
