GREAT CHEESECAKE!

What appears to be a simple downtown café on its exterior is actually a real culinary delight. The menu offers plenty of options for all palates and the price is very reasonable. Nothing pretentious, nothing overpriced, nothing overstated. Simply very good food and very friendly staff. We had the Poor Man's Rueben - (Grilled turkey breast, Swiss cheese, cole slaw... More

Don't expect "super fancy" - that's not what "Bruce's" is about; "Bruce's is all about the food! Fast, friendly, made fresh and served with a smile. And.. Did I forget to mention cheesecake? Fast becoming nationally known for delivering a little bit of heaven!

Here is a small town restaurant with world class food! Bruce himself is on hand to greet you, visit your table and chat. Somewhat of a local celebrity, "He's on T.V. here locally" and can't quit, he's a star! His food is outstanding.You start off with a hummus sampler, the red beet and kale were exquisite, We all tasted each... More

When I first heard the name of the restaurant I was, well, a bit skeptical. Reading the reviews changed my mind - enough to give Bruce's Fabulous Food a try. Do NOT pass up an opportunity to eat at this wonderful restaurant....the REUBEN came highly recommended so I ordered it. Truly the best Reuben I have ever had. The sandwich... More

Bruce & Barbara have mastered a restaurant worth of repeat visits for Guy Fieri' s Triple D show. Bruce takes diner fare, tweet the recipes to take them beyond the next level. Our group sampled from all over the menu to include; Bruce's Burger with caramelized onion & & homemade pimento cheese spread, Rueben piled high with corned beef, thick... More

One of my favorite local restaurants. Bruce and Barb are the best, friendly, accommodating and they know how to cook. Bruce as a cooking show on WLOS TV. The menu is nothing like you'll see anywhere, variety, with nothing fried (except a bag of chips) I usually have "today's special", always outstanding. I asked my three year old grandson where...

It gets very smokey in the restaurant from the grill. The food is the quality of bar food. He is known for his cheesecake but even the cheesecake is lacking in flavor.
