Nice casual place with good Burgers

This is a small place and the food is good and reasonably priced. They usually have 3 or 4 good cakes and pies to choose from too. The place is very casual and the menu has quite a few choices for you. It's all simple foods but most of the time that is all I need.

LOVE THIS PLACE! I have been going there for about three years now very casual friendly neighborhood type place. The specials tend to be what I go for they make really yummy simple type food. If you don’t feel like cooking and don’t want to spend a ton of money Pipers is the spot.

I wrote a bad review about this restaurant some time ago, but recent visits have changed my mind. My daughter and I love to go here and sit outside when possible on the porch. The service has greatly improved since the time of my bad experience. The food was always good and still is. I really like the tune salad... More

I have been driving by this restaurant for years and had always wondered how their food was. One gorgeous early spring day my husband and I decided to try it. Once seated, I saw a friend and felt assured that we were in for a lovely lunch. And lovely it was, thanks to my exquisite company and the beautiful weather.... More

Piper's used to be a really nice restaurant. Now when I go there (which is seldom) there are few people there and the service stinks. The waitress we had was downright rude to my elderly mother who had trouble making up her mind. I think the smoking ban may have killed this place. Back in the old days, smokers used... More
