The food is amazing and a waitress there took the time to have a very long converstaion with my four year old son about Super Mario Brothers, very much appreciated!

“BIG Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

They are known for breakfast and the servings are huge! The desserts are huge and good too. The rest of the stuff is just average.

“Bit Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Food is good but the portions are HUGE! Some great specials, like their steak and eggs and their prime rib dinners, but for the most part their prices are a bit high compared to the competition.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

This was one of the only restaurants open when we decided to go out for a late meal. The portions were huge and the prices were good. The service and the food were both great.

“Good basic breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Found this on trip advisor. Neat bear decor, menus were on a Merced newspaper from 1955 very cute. They had breakfasts for lighter eaters like me. We just wanted something basic but they had a wide variety on the menu. Bacon was crisp and thick like I prefer. Just an excellent breakfast. My only complaint was that the music was too loud. But then I was a little cranky anyway my husband said.
