The Italian steak for breakfast is THE best. Limited hours, but if you want great food, you get there when they're open!

This is the pinnacle of what you know as a diner. It is very comfortable and relaxed. You can tell when you enter that it is a place that has many, many regulars. Our server was Kathy and she seemed to know everyone and everyone knows her. Her service is very casual and efficient. The food is excellent and with... More

We went here for breakfast due to our hotel's breakfast being less than appetizing...and we are so glad we did! My sister and I both ordered the Ricotta Pancakes with Triple Berries...these are seriously... More

Was through on business and stopped for breakfast at what is typically a decent stop at any BW restaurant. Avoid this like the plague. It was awful. If one dot could be halved for a rating this was one.

Great service! Amazing food! They are only open for breakfast. I recommend Larry's Volcano. Biscuits, potatoes, sausage, cheese, eggs, covered in gravy. Very pleasant atmosphere.

Very friendly & welcoming staff... :) Great range of food on the menu. Quite heavy meals, lots of meat. Wonderful pancakes, which have berries & ricotta mixed through the mixture.
