Sorry but this place has changed. New owner not friendly like the last. Food takes forever now and has been way overcooked last few visits. Food taste like owner has gone cheap even the French fry taste like grease. No thank you we will no be spending our money there anymore.

This weekend we discovered an excellent family restaurant in Eagle River, just a little bit south of the Snow Mobile World Championship Raceway, on the north side of Eagle River. We had breakfast there on Friday and lunch today. The parking lot was packed both visits but the wait was very manageable each time. The complete menu (with the exception... More

This place was packed but we got the last two seats at the bar. The food was very good diner fare, the service was fast and friendly, and the atmosphere had the desired northwoods charm. We’ll go back on our next trip through.

Visited on a Sunday around 11am, parking lot was packed but the wait was only 20 min. Wait time was accurate, no more, no less than 20 min. Very good variety of breakfast choices. Omelets, skillets, pancakes, & sandwiches. The portion seemed a little small, but nonetheless, very good. I don't know of many other breakfast joints within downtown Eagle... More

We stopped for lunch. Very warm in the restaurant. A/C was not working. Food was hot and tasty. Service was a little slow, but good. It was very busy.

Exactly what I'm looking for in a Northwoods cafe that serves a hearty breakfast! Very busy, but they keep people moving and the wait for a table of 4 was minimal. Service was OK. Food was outstanding all around. Prices are really reasonable. Will return time and time again.

The breakfast food here is always tasty. The portions are large, the staff friendly and efficient, and the restaurant is always clean. It's a good place to see locals and start your day.

Walked across street from the days inn for dinner. My father and son and myself had the "special" chicken and dumplings. None of us could eat what was served because it was all salt and a huge pile of what i think was stove top dressing on chipped chicken and canned gravy. Certainly not real dumplings or gravy and very... More

My wife and I stopped in for a beer and some appetizers one afternoon and found this place to be very comfortable along with a nice variety of tasty selections for thier appetizers. The atmosphere was very casual.
