Just okay

Ate lunch here with my 15 year old daughter a few days ago. She ordered a chocolate shake which didn't end up coming until the END of the meal and was not made well. We were told by the waitress that "the shake machine is broken, it sprayed all over the place." Okay, fine, but then she could have... read more

We were driving by and stopped for lunch. It was nothing more than average so don't go out of way to go here to eat. The place is dingy - you have to be desperate to use the restroom.

Stopped by for a Sunday brunch. Clean, quiet, immediately seated and served. Reasonably-priced and pleasant staff.

Once upon a time I had an office directly across the street from Tool's Restaurant and I have not been back for a meal since 1984 I would guess. The place looked exactly the same with it's 1970's decor. Stopped in with a small group of family for breakfast this morning. The food was just average and the service was... More

Tool's has been in the area for a while now. I used to go here often when I was younger, and my memories are fleeting. I recently stopped in with some family, hoping we could get a good meal for a good price. No such luck. When we got our food in had no flavor at all, and this was... More

This restaurant is a hole in the wall (its been around for many years) but Ive always loved their sandwiches and the prices arent bad. The staff is also friendly. My family has been dining there for years with no complaints. Try the roast beef sandwich its excellent!

Bland, old, salty. I felt like I was eating in a nursing home. The staff were pleasant enough, but the atmosphere could use a makeover.

We used to go to this restaurant for breakfast frequently because we thought the food was decent and moderately priced. The last time we were there was REALLY the LAST time we will go there. They sat us in the back room because they were busy. When we realized that we needed a fork but the waitress wasn't around -... More
