Service Lacking

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... read 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.

We had lunch here after some motorcycle riding. It was a small buffet but oh so good. I had the fried chicken, squash, collard greens, green beans and fried corn bread. The salad was fresh (small salad bar if you want more). I was full but continued to eat because it was so good and I could not take a... More

Visited with friends on Saturday 23, 2015. Family atmosphere, service at the beginning was slow, but then on time and friendly. Appetizers were delicious fried pickles and fried mushrooms, the best of our whole lunch experience. Main dishes are ok, they lack spices and need more flavor. Desserts average:(

Read other reviews that didn't like the food. Perhaps the wife and I just choose the right stuff. Fish and chips were good only complaint is they have no malt vinegar. A serious oversight for fish and chips.

We bought the hamburger steak and 3 sides. Meat was dry and no flavor at all!! Told the waitress they needed to maybe add gravy on top. She said cooks won't listen to suggestions. Well they should listen to someone. Could be a great location for a great place to eat. Keep servers fire the cooks.
