Not sure where to start? The food and preparation is terrible, prices are comically exorbitant for a greasy spoon. I would have hoped that a greasy spoon would at least serve up some artery clogging goodness; not the case. This was a desperation stop for lunch....lesson learned.

We usually go here at least once per week for the breakfast special. This restaurant can be a busy spot at times. With it being so busy it would be nice to have more than 2 servers working the whole restaurant. This causes long waits to place an order, find a clean table etc. etc. etc., On the last two... More

The server was excellent. I can't say enough about how she was the epitome of what a proper server should be. The price was quite reasonable. I ordered the 14oz. New York strip dinner and asked if they would substitute some extra mashed potatoes instead of the garden salad which was included in the meal. They had no problem doing... More

They have been around for a long time, and I can't see why. We went there only once and will never go back. Had a steak sandwich and it was complete with fat, no seasoning or flavour and the buns were so soggy. The booths looked like they were a hundred years old. Definitely needed renovation. The restaurant was filled... More

This is a family run restaurant in my home town. It's in a little strip mall on the main street. At one time the food was ok, as in not bad. However I can't even say that anymore. The food was dry and tasted like freeze dried, pre-packaged third grade food. It pains me to say it as I like... More

Maybe it was an off day but there was little in this place to get me back. The full dining area is very warm and eye appealing but considering that the place was not busy, the wait time for the meal was excessively long. Two waitresses were on duty, one very attentive and the other (mine) didn't seem to care... More
