food was ok

This is located in an awkward corner. Service was not great. Food was just ok. Don't think I would return.

We went there for breakfast this morning! The biscuits were amazing!! The home fries were so good... They are like thick potato chips. The staff was so friendly. Another must try place in this fantastic town!

This is not the first time I've been here. The first time was all that great. But I figured I'd give it another shot. I had a group of 6 with me, after being seated, it took at least 15 minutes to get drinks. Then we ordered, which took another 45 minutes plus to get our food. We weren't the... More

Service was good during the meal but then by the time she came back to ask about dessert we changed our minds and decided to just ask for the check. Pulled pork was a little mushy and salty. Bathrooms were what you would expect of an old building. Everything else was good.

We each had a sandwich and the chicken was pretty small, but good flavor. The french fries were good and the server was sweet.

This is a hard restaurant for me to rate because the service was so poor but the food we had was fairly good. We didn't have a big order either. One guest at our table ordered the Philly and the other three had pinto beans and cornbread. The plate with the Philly on it was served first and all by... More

Love visiting local "hang-outs" then this is one to check out. Nothing fancy but great food and friendly staff. The local folks friendly and made us feel right at home.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat - wasn't sure what to expect but was surprised to find just a good old-fashioned diner stop. This isn't your high-end tourist attraction restaurant. It's truly local and perfect for the area. The food was good and the staff friendly! But if you're expecting anything more than your local mom & pop... More

I had a special cortney omellette with maple syrup invented locally which was great. Nice unpretentious diner style breakfast place.
