Friendly staff will bring you an enjoyable meal. I have only had breakfast here but it was good every time. They can accommodate a pretty large family with children pretty easily.

I sincerely enjoy diners, so I've been to quite a few. The food here tasted pretty good, but overall did not meet my expectations for a diner. I did not think the portions were appropriate for the prices at all. I've never been able to complete a meal at a diner and I not only finished mine, but had some... More

Everything was average until the waitress gave myself and 3 friends our bill that included the gratuity on only a 4 top and it was only a $40 check. Now it just so happens we are in our 20s and look young, but we just so happen to be servers in another local restaurant and all have 20 years combined... More

I ordered something I can't recall the name of but it had eggs, meat, pancakes, hash browns and toast!!!!!!!!!! I told the waitress no potatoes or toast and I left most of it on the plate anyway! I was thinking silver dollar-sized pancakes but it was 2 pancakes the size of the plate! Two of my sons had pancakes and... More

I've only gone here for breakfast but their food is amazing. They have white chocolate chip, chocolate chip, and peanut butter chip pancakes. The atmosphere isn't the greatest bc they have weird chandeliers on the ceiling but hey as long as the food is good, I don't care. The service is ok, the place is clean, and their prices are... More

Food wasn't bad but for two of us an a 4 yea old we came out to $40 which is pricey to me for diner food. Staff was friendly and atmosphere was ok. Really not a bad lunch but not a memorable one. Everything was ok.

Very conveniently located almost next door to our hotel. Food was good, but it was a little pricey. However, all the other places we went were pricey as well, so I think this is the norm in a vacation town like this one. Service was good. Please be advised that they only serve breakfast and lunch.

Had breakfast with some friends. Service was great,, food was OK. Only problem was loud music playing and we could not enjoy our food. We asked our server to see if the noise could be turned down a bit, however the owner would not comply. Too bad, as otherwise things were good. Great location.

For breakfast you could not do better. Great portions. Friendly people. I normally get the Italian scrambler. All their triple egg omelets are great also.
