This is a place you can count on.

We have eaten here many times. It is open only for breakfast and lunch, but there are many choices. Service has always been excellent. Staff are super-friendly. I love their monte cristo (French toast with ham and turkey with syrup). If you stay at the Best Western next door and show your room... read more

We stayed at the Best Western, adjacent to the restaurant. Bright, clean place for breakfast, and reasonable prices. Staff was very friendly and food, good. Quick service and beautiful views. I would definitely return.

Awesome breakfast place. Very reasonably priced and they get your food out quick! Not an upscale place but the food is delicious and coffee great. With the prices so cheap, I eat here often.

We have driven past this place dozens of times when in the area and looking for a spot for dinner, and it always seemed to be closed. Yesterday we stopped for breakfast and discovered that it is only open for breakfast and lunch. We had a fine meal. Service was excellent and everyone very friendly and eager to accomodate. I...

My wife's dry scrambled eggs were over done to a point they were a little crispy on the edges. I am not a fan of breakfast potatoes cooked in the French fryer.

Food was mediocre, service was ok, prices a little high. We usually pick a spot and keep going back, decided to look elsewhere and found a much better place down the road

Service was fantastic, very friendly, very professional. Breakfast food was great. We had waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage. My daughter had Oreo cookie waffles (waitress's recommendation). She was very pleased with them.

We ate breakfast here before heading out for a canoe and camping trip with oatmeal on the menu for 5 mornings. This place did not disappoint 4 hungry men. The waitresses were very cheerful and helpful. We had another satisfying breakfast on our way back-- after eating the oatmeal in cloudy or rainy mornings.

upon arrival to McKenzies, we were NOT greated by a hostess but had to excuse ourselves to ask for a table. As it was winter carnival, we had a large group of people that they could not accommodate… they told us "we will never get our dining room back together" (which was not our problem, as they had just accommodated...
