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.

OK. Quick review. This is a cafe. It looks like a cafe so don't expect a fine dining experience. My wife had a Rueben, which she said was below average. I had a hamburger that was overcooked but tasted good anyhow. The fries and onion rings are pre-frozen so taste like fries and onion rings in every mom & pop... More

Dined here the first week of June. I had the Chef's Salad and it was fresh and huge. Other people in the party had wraps which also were very good. Good size portions. Very homey. Highly recommend.

Overall very good. Chicken and Dumpling was very good, light and fluffy massive dumpling. . BLT Club on marble rye had lots of thick bacon and turkey. Cranberry chutney and turkey sandwich was served on a soft and warm roll with a bit too much (believe it or not) thick bacon, but was very good. Omelet was big and a... More

My husband and I went there on the suggestion of a coworker, who recommended the garbage omelet. We went at lunch time but wanted breakfast, so we were glad to see they serve breakfast all day. The menu is extensive, and everything on it sounds delicious. I ended up ordering the garbage omelet, which is basically an omelet with the... More

I ordered a breakfast platter to which I was going to leave out my potatoes due to my special diet. My waitress suggested ordering in a different way and saved me money. My husband loved his scramble, and my eggs were cooked to order.
