Nice store right in town!

Love the décor and the atmosphere. Prices are higher than grocery store but it is very convenient to town and has a great variety of items.

This place had a little bit of everything. I would go back to this place again to pick up gifts and misc items needed while on a weekend getaway trip.

This place was busy so you know it is good! We just ordered sandwiches to take with us into the National Park. Sandwiches were huge and very good. We split one for lunch and split the second for dinner after our hike! Would certainly come back before a hike to grab more food.

This was right across from our hotel and we decided to try it for breakfast one day. It was the best food we had all week. The service was fantastic. We literally didn't want to eat anywhere else after we tried Old Dad's. Even though our hotel had free breakfast we chose to eat at Old Dad's instead. The breakfast... More

Right next to our hotel so it was super convenient. They serve a terrific breakfast at a reasonable price. Also have a deli and convenience store items as well as souvenirs. Breakfast starts at 7AM. Perfect for taking with us into the park. Got our picnic supplies there as well! Staff was very friendly!

Glad that Old Dad's was open and accommodating! It was late and my husband and I were not quite hungry yet. We had eaten a late and large lunch but we knew in a few hours we would be hungry and nothing would be open. We ran in to old Dad's and bought some lunch meat and snacks. To be... More

They have an awesome Philly Steak sandwich...went back the next day to try something else but ordered the same the second day! Also had my first fried green tomato! Very cool little store with many unusual items.

We ordered sandwiches to go and were quite pleased. Ihad a Reuben one of the best ever, And my Queen had a ham and cheese. They don't prepare them until you order, so they are as fresh as possible. It is a popular place, so I had to wait about 20 minutes. Next time I will know to call ahead.... More

I honestly enjoyed the store more than the food, but the food was good as well. Just typical deli stuff. We sat at tables in the middle of the store and checked out the merchandise. Lots of old school candy from when I was a kid. They even had candy cigarettes! (I didn't know those existed anymore). Just a really... More
