We had fish and chips here. The fist was tender and moist but greasy; the fries were out of a bag. The restaurant itself seemed tired. We'd have been better off at Tim Horton's.

We found the fries were over cooked . Also we ate inside instead of in the car and the restaurant was very dirty , food all over the tables and floor. They really need more staff especially busboy or girl. But I had a lobster burger and my husband had fried chicken and they were both excellent..

We have tried this place a few times over the summers. The old fashioned building and décor is charming. However no air conditioning and very hot on a warm day. The onion rings were fresh and delicious. The burgers were so/so and expensive. Pop in for a milkshake, but don't expect too much.

The food here is yummy! No complaints. I can definitely say my scallop burger was fresh and delicious, served on a homemade bun! The diner atmosphere is nice too. Worth the stop if you're hungry!!

Found this place by accident, was just driving along and had to stop! Just put your four ways on and before you know it a server is at your window. Prices are ok, concept super neat, food not so great. Milk shakes, a+. A good place to stop by.

Kuddos to this place for being more environmental friendly than other drive-thru joints by allowing you to flash your lights and have someone come take your order while parked instead of wasting gas and causing pollution. We also enjoyed the outside benches so we could eat with our dog. The food was typical diner fare and was yummy and seemed... More
