What a nice little diner. Friendly, quick service. Obviously favored by the locals. The prices on the regular menu are fairly average but the specials are tasty and inexpensive. As is the back-of-the-menu selection of sandwiches and hot dogs for under $2. We both had large bowls of ham and bean soup ($4). Lots of chunks of good ham in... More

We stopped here for lunch. I had the spinach pie and hubby had fish with home fries. Must say the spinach pie was very good. Price was average, service good, would return.

Words are not enough to describe this diner. Fun place to eat....they treat you like family and you really feel at HOME eating here. From the owner, cook to all the waitresses, you'll be one happy DINER. My favorite place for BREAKFAST.

We had an Entertainment book coupon so we decided to give this place a try. The service was great and the food was good. My wife had the crab cake meal and I had the seafood platter. There was plenty of food and we took home enough for a lunch the following day.

Me, my brother and my dad were exploring the Serpent Mound in Peebles and decided to stop by on the way home to Columbus. Our overall experience was fantastic! The waitress we had was very friendly and called us all "sweetie" which made us feel at home. The food was great (if you like small portions) and the atmosphere was... More
