Not so average food.

Not a lot to like...they food has gone downhill..... The Sunday buffets are okay, real pan friend chicken is good, but it is too pricey for what you get. And how can you mess up breakfast? By the food being greasy....Have no desire to go back.

If you want the best Sunday buffet after church, take your family to the Mill Inn Restaurant. The ham and fried chicken are off the hook and comes with all the trimmings at a reasonable price. Small town atmosphere and attentive wait staff.

Nothing real impressive. Had a regular breakfast, nothing special. Wait staff friendly. Service okay.

We were there for breakfast. The menu was standard American and the prices were a good value. The staff was friendly and the meal was delivered quickly. It is a neighborhood diner.

You can always count on having a good breakfast here and on Sundays they are a buffet which includes fried chicken (the old fashioned kind (not broasted), ham and roast beef. It is a small buffet, but home cooked. Service is always good. The only problem, is it is an old place and needs some sprucing up.

Small diner, looks like nothing has changed since the 1940's. Comfort food, relaxed, locals, affordable.

A long while ago this was a great place to enjoy a common meal.....not so anymore. I have gone twice to see how things are and was greatly disappointed both times...Food was poorly prepared and portion was very very small.

First the positives. It's pretty cute from the outside. Evolks nostalgia. Thats it. The place was dirty. Got a dirty glass and dirty silverware. We had breakfast. On two plates not one food item was good and most were inedible. The best thing on either plate was my toast.

Labor day visit to area and there was only one open restaurant. We didn't have much choice. The waitress and other staff were friendly and bantered with the regulars. We had breakfast. The bacon was simultaneously burned and 'raw.' The pancakes were fluffy and crispy. The omelet had velveeta (or similar) cheese. Can't say any of us were impressed, unfortunately..
