The best breakfast place, portions are great, prices are reasonable. We had a new waitress on that day we went in = she was great for her first day.

A little place on route 2 on the way to berlin...service was friendly and fast. Coffee was on the weak and tasteless side. Ham and cheese omelet was cooked properly and was very tasty. Prices are low and portions large here. Has a nice gift shop attached, too. Will definitely return!

A friend had mentioned this restaurant, so we went out of our way to visit it. If someone says that "it's near Santa's Village" don't take that too literally - it's quite a ways down the road! Our mistake. We were not disappointed however. We liked the comfortable old style of the tables with things to read at the table,... More

Because we enjoyed the food in 2013 we had to go back when we where in the area. They told us wait would be 45mins. 1.5 hrs later we were seated. I ordered an omelet. Omelet came and was huge and very good. Only ate half! Then I over heard the waitress taken the table behind us order and she... More

This place was awesome!!! We were greeted as soon as we entered and there was a small wait so we were shown over to the gift shop part and called when our table was ready. Great souvenirs. When we were seated there were small IQ games that kept us busy while waiting which was a nice touch. Food was great,... More

First let me say that the description here on TripAdvisor should be updated. The place does have it's own website. It does not show up well on Google Maps, but is worth looking for. It's also called The Water Wheel, not The Waterwheel. The incorrect name makes it hard to find here, as it does not show up in searches... More

We found this wonderful "gem a few years ago. Now, that I have been back a couple more times, I feel likely I am a "regular". Depending on the time of day, you may have to wait. Please be patient and be kind. The owners and staff a very nice and accomodating. They work very hard to please the customers.... More
