We eat here at least weekly and are always pleased. The menu is just good family style and a weekend buffet. The service is always pleasing and the prices reasonable. The long time owner is very generous to civic appeals.

Great local mostly family run diner, with good food and fair prices. GREAT burgers, Fabulous broasted chicken, and fabulous cole slaw. Salad bar is ALWAYS fresh. The buffet selection (when available) is sparse, but what they have is good except for the vegies (they are kind of bland).

The price was fair, the staff friendly. The food was good, you won't find a lot of variety, but a nice place for family or a meeting for your group. As there is a separate room for meetings.

Had the broasted chicken, which was good. Salad bar was small, but fresh. Decent service. Quiet laid back atmosphere.

The place needs a thorough cleaning. The waitress was fair. The food was plain and a little boring, nothing unique here. Service was slow and order was not complete. I had to wait on dressing for a salad order.

Nice clean restaurant to take the whole family. Prices are reasonable too. Hard to find good "sit down" places these days. GFR is one of the best.

Tidy restaurant that has a lot of seating. You can order off of the menu or get the buffet. I chose buffet and it was very good and very cheap. My 12 year old son got the buffet too and it was only $4.80!!! The staff was welcoming and sweet. Loved to hear the old folks conversations from around the... More

Nothing seriously wrong with this place - just boring menu and buffet needs sprucing up a bit. Sorry.

The fried clam strips are worth a trip. The broasted chicken is better than fried in my book. Good hamburgers as most of these family restaurants have. Their cole slaw is a good choice to complete a hamburger platter with fries. Breakfast all day works for me too.
