Seems to be a favorite of locals. Old style diner in every way. Had to go with the Western Omelet since it was advertised. Quite good. Wife had blue berry pancakes. Two were the size of dinner plates and quite fluffy. Could have used more blue berries - but satisfying just the same. Don't expect gourmet - just simple, well... More

Very busy on weekends. We went there on a Tuesday morning and the place was also full. Got bar seats. Very mom and pop shop. Retro. I ordered hash browns and western omelette. Seemed to be very greasy. Nothing worth writing home. Probably won't be going back

We usually eat here weekly. Sometimes breakfast which is AMAZING!! I have an egg allergy but the whites are ok. If I order a Omelet with egg whites, they custom make it, Same price and it's HUGE!! A lot of places if you order the egg whites in an omelette they are super skimpy. The also load up the omelette... More

Definitely a hidden gem. I think its better than Thurman's which happens to be next door to it and is nationally famous. The burgers are huge for a low price, $4.95. Meals come with chips, fries are extra at $1.75. Everything I eat here is awesome including their breakfast. There is hardly ever a wait during the weekdays for lunch.

Amazing food and friendly service! We traveled from MN to Columbus for a convention and went here for breakfast our last day before driving back home. Its a small space we had to wait for a little bit but it was told worth it, we even shared a table with some locals and had a great time. Their bacon is... More

When I am home from working in Toledo. My wife and I will have Bfast at GVCS. They keep my own bottle of Maple Syrup for me for when I order the Pancake. Unless you have a very big appitite one is enough. Regardless of what I order I will always end up eating a piece of Bacon. The Bacon... More

I am one who can tolerate a "greasy spoon" so I was comfortable here. It was clean at the level of a 7 on a scale of 10. The main cooking surfaces and counters were clean yet the walls and outlets were a little grimy. It is a very old establishment and it shows. That being said, the food is... More

We had breakfast here and the portions were huge! The omelets were stuffed with all the goodies and the pancakes were as big as the plates. The food was very tasty and fresh. The prices were very good. You will not leave hungry or dissatisfied.

Excellent quality western omelet. Cooked to perfection right before you. The grill is right there, you can smell it cooking. Little hole in the wall restaurant. Tiny little place with no frills or pomp. But good, inexpensive, food. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Will go again next time thru Columbus. Parking on the street, did not see a lot.... More
