Two of us came here for lunch on July 4 weekend, based on Trip Advisor recommendations. There are several highly rated TA restaurants within a fe blocks on highway 33, north of the main business district. I had a hot turkey sandwich which I'd describe as mediocre. There were a few narrowly sliced pieces of turkey on brea, with lots... More

Decided to try Family Tradition after hearing numerous good reports from others. The kids pancakes were excellent. My wife's blueberry French Toast was great. I had the "John's omelette" a 5 egger, stuffed with hash browns, sausage, ham, cheddar, and green pepper. It was great, and perfectly cooked. We will be back. Very reasonable prices

We just finished the best breakfast of our trip! I highly recommend the breakfast special. The pancakes are really good but the bran muffin is the best!

This diner has it all. Good food. Large portions and home town appeal. Portions are large. You definitely get your money's worth. Try the omelets.

We've been eating here for years. A favorite stop for breakfast. Great specials and the best pancakes ever! They offer half portions for those who can't eat a large omelet and the bran muffins are excellent. The food is always good, no matter what time of day. The waitresses are friendly and willing to work with you if you'd like... More

Quite often we eat here after church and it's always packed! No frills here, but prices are right and service is fast. Most of the time we have the daily breakfast special but we really like the hot turkey sandwiches! Homemade taste! We get a half portion because there is a mound of turkey and mashed potatoes! Sometimes we need... More

7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids) stopped here on our way to Voyaguer's national park. We all enjoyed our breakfasts. Some had omelets with pancakes. Omelets got good reviews. A few of us had the number one with scrambled eggs, hash browns, and pancakes or a muffin. As other reviews have said, the pancakes were awesome!!! Would go... More
