Friendly staff

We stayed at Best Western and ate here a couple of times. We had good food and very good service, once we got past the wait. Many smiles and helpful attitude towards a family with kids.

I like hole in the wall stops in small towns for lunch. Driving into town the signs led me to believe it would be a good one. However, the food was mediocre and it really just catered to the tour buses. As for the "ho-made pie" there was nothing wrong with it, but not worth the stop

These famous steaks are SO delicious, tender and juicy. Get their special! The waitress was incredibly friendly and kept the drinks coming.

Hard to say as they were having staffing issues. Wish the menu was a little healthier, but the meats were very good- prime rib was great as were the pork chops. If only the veggies were fresh- those would have been great meals! The desserts were good.

was excited for some tasty HO made pies the only thing that was bad was my roast beef dinner = very gamey beef pies were tasty as advertised service was a bit slow even though the place was almost empty at 5 pm. and hostess was almost surly - certainly nowhere near friendly or welcoming prices were not bad for...

We went here on the recommendation of some friends. First, let me say that servers were friendly but the service was horrible. I go an "I don't really care" feeling. The food was adequate but poorly presented, but it is a diner. And the pie, horrible. Don't waste the money or calories.

We sat down here but nobody came to greet us or take our order, so we left to go somewhere else. Looks like a tourist trap anyway....

This is a funky hotel restaurant that gives a great experience. The Thunderbird has good food and is attached to the hotel. Try the Apple Pie with Hot Buttered Rum Sauce. Yum.

Good food, especially breakfast and lunch. Dinner selection was good, but nothing great. We did have one issue at dinner with being told it would be 20 minutes wait, which turned into 50 minute wait at about 8:30 pm. I believe they were short on staff that night in kitchen. Waitresses were very good.
