You can get typical old style diner food here and it's fine and, as is typical of this kind of fare, filling. They also offer healthier options like wraps. It was a decent meal in the perfect location when visiting the flight of locks. It overlooks the locks though not from any of the tables. You have to go back... More

The food at each visit has been just barely warm and usually burned. The cook doesn't season well. :0( The service is always spectacular and they have a good milkshake. It might be a Lockport staple, but they need a new cook.

Small homey place in town. Friendly staff makes your meal even more enjoyable. Had breakfast ans lunch there. Nothing fancy just good ole American food. We went near closing but they still took the time to get us seated and serve us a nice meal. Have teen sons, they loved it.

This was an interesting place recommended by a local. Our server was pleasant but we were told we had to sit in the front as the back was closed so we couldn't look out at the view of the canal. Even though it was lunch time, we ordered breakfast food and it was tasty. We'd go back.
