If you are looking for an inexpensive Sysco style prepared meal, you have the right place. The building is beautiful on Route 9 in Oceanville/Galloway NJ the people are wonderful too. However if you want a home cooked meal you are not going to get it here. The products all appear to be good quality prepared Sysco products. The facility... More

Crowded Friday night but still good service. Food portion was good and very tasty. Not sure if I'd go back since the same type food can be had nearby for less money.

Side salad and bread service were delicious. The eggplant parmesan was ok, but had too much tomato sauce on the entree. Wouldn't be my first choice for dinner in the area, but I wouldn't run screaming from the place, either.

Food is not consistent, portions are ample. Restaurant is very pretty and staff is friendly. Parking lot is too small

The food is good, especially the breakfast items. The pancakes and omelets are wonderful. They give you so much food! I've had wonderful experiences eating inside the restaurant. However, having the food delivered can be a problem, especially when you order a large quantity of food. A few times I've had to either go to the restaurant because I was... More

Stopped by and had lunch. It was a bit noisy but the food was great. This was the second time going there and the meatballs were good again. Better alternative to restaurants in the smithville shops area for lunch. Oh and the staff was really nice even after my youngest daughter spilled juice all over the place. I'd go back... More

This restaurant is simply amazing. The food is great.. the portions are very ample.. the prices are extremely reasonable... and the service is superb.. The owner is very involved, & he personally checks on every table. On our second time at the restaurant, he stood at our table & chatted with us for a good 15 minutes. He remembered us... More

This is a great restaurant to grab a meal while enjoying the birds and wildlife at the Forsythe Refuge. They open early for breakfast and serve a great variety of food all day. We have eaten there three times recently and have enjoyed each visit. It is friendly place to relax, have a great meal, without the formality of Smithville,... More

This is easily the best place to grab a bite in the area. The breakfast and burgers are awesome. It's a beautiful place from the inside out and the staff is great. Always the reliable place when we visit from Long Island.
