Once again we visited for breakfast. As usual, due to the popularity of the restaurant we waited a long time for a table. 45 minutes or more. The meals are outstanding and the serving size is impressive. Wait staff is cordial and efficient. The wait times prove how popular this restaurant is and why the meal makes the wait worthwhile....

The best country breakfast there is with large portions and reasonable prices. The pancakes are some of biggest you'll find.

Food is okay, but not much better than a McDonald's breakfast. Not bad pancakes and omelets, but the home fries are terrible and the hash is dogfood. Also, the bread is store bought and most everything is frozen and canned including the "home made" beans. Drive a little further to the Littleton Diner, EVERYTHING is HOME MADE and the food... More

Good food and plenty of it. Most people choose breakfast over lunch. It can be very busy, so plan accordingly.

Awesome food, especially whoopie pies. Great homecooked food & well-stocked gift shop. Pancakes are delicious, coffee is great prices are reasonable, & service is awesome. Very friendly. Too bad they aren't open for dinner.

2/28/15 Food is good, BUT: The hostess thinks she is the only person that can do anything. Some people had to wait 20-30 min. to be seated, yet there were 2-4 empty tables.The hostess rode herd on the wait staff (there were only 2), cashed out the store and restaurant,cleared tables (there was a very capable person to do this)...
