“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We have been here several times over the past few years and it was always nice. However, this was our first time back this year. After flying into Orlando, we decided to wait until we drove to St.Pete to have lunch here. We should have just eaten at the airport. Our waitress was pleasant, they do seem to push you in and out, even though people weren't waiting. Not impressed with the food this time at all! My husband said the grouper sandwich had a "bad taste" almost as if it had Parmesan on it. Guy at the register was not very pleasant. We won't be back.

“Great for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We were staying across the street and stopped in here for lunch. The lunch menu was a great value and there was a little bit of everything to choose from. The prices are very good and we all enjoyed our meals. We almost went back a second time, but decided we should try something different.

“Good value, something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

This diner type restaraunt has a little something for everyone. I enjoyed chicken parm, my husband had a turkey club, and daughter had kids spaghetti and meatballs. Everything was good and what we expected from a diner. $10-$15 per person depending on what you get. Nice laid back, very casual dining. I would go back and reccomend for families who cant decide what to have for dinner.
