My wife and I stopped by for breakfast recently, on a Saturday morning. Sat down, had good service and coffee served up. The server took our order, so expecting a wait for breakfast to be served (French toast/ Flap Jacks) my wife took a restroom break. The food was already sitting on the table when she got back.

We stopped for breakfast. The food wasn't bad and the service was ok but neither were great. The ice tea was old though and tasted like it had been made the day before instead of fresh that day. There seem to be some better choices.

Along this stretch of 13 there aren't many options for diner food. So if that is what you crave this is your only option along this road.

The dinner had a busy parking lot so we stopped. My husband had a weird prime rib that had been broiled after it was cooked. Edible but not worth repeating. I had the crabmeat melt that had a really string fish smell. The restroom had a very sticky floor. Not a good sign.

This is a popular local dining place and serves a great breakfast. They have a great breakfast special and place is always crowded for lunch and dinner also. Service is good and friendly. If you are in the area, stop in and try it.

I ate breakfast here two days in a row while staying at the Best Western next door. Both meals were served promptly and were fresh and hot. Nice portion sizes and attentive service. Atmosphere was slightly dated, but very clean and well-kept. Would definitely recommend this as a great breakfast option in this area.
