Had breakfast on a Tuesday May morning. I had delicious - really- eggs benedict and sister had eggs, bacon and toast. Coffee was very good and full bodied plus filled as needed. Great service and a nice, classic diner which was clean and fun.

Stopped for breakfast this morning. Had not been here for a long time.Wonderful breakfast. Plenty to eat and came out quickly. Our server (Kayla) was FANTASTIC. Her great service makes a pleasant dining experience much more so. We will be back.

I love this place because it is open 24/7. Although I notice the teens of this town enjoy hanging out there. I like their food and think its a nice place to stop in sometimes.

The hostess sat in a booth between seating you and taking your bill. Could have helped the servers. Took 15 minutes to be noticed by the server . Food was so so bland and mine was half burned and ribs tasted like they'd been sitting for a very long time them drowned in sauce. Weren't offered refill on drink and... More

Stopped for breakfast with my spouse. Ordered sausage gravy which had no sausage and no taste (horrible). My spouse ordered feta and spinach omlet. Eggs rubbery. We both stopped eating after 4 bites. The only thing good was the coffee. Waitress stopped by the table and asked how everything was. We really tried not to draw attention and were very... More

Being new to the area I relied on neighbors and friends for recommendations of a good local diner. So happy I listened and took the leap to visit one of the nuggets this quaint town offers here. Breakfast (round the clock), Lunch, or Dinner are equally prepared in generous portion, served by happy staff, and appropriately priced. Never meant to... More

This is the real deal. A long operating Mom and Pop Diner. It has a huge menu and the portions tend to be huge as well. On two occasions I ordered full meals to go for a family of 8 including desserts, appetizers and main courses. All of the dishes were at least good and several were excellent. The desserts... More

Breakfast foods okay. Late at night waitresses are always preoccupied and seem to forget about getting your order.
