“Don't Come for the Soup”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

On our way to Amish country we stopped for a quick lunch. The place was crowded with locals, which is usually a good sign. We wanted to eat light, so both got soup, with an extra order of bread sticks with garlic sauce. I had an extremely bland chili; she had beef vegetable soup with overcooked vegetables and very little beef. The bread sticks were doughy and the garlic sauce was not good. The place highlights its desserts (pies). They may be great, but the soup isn't.

“Best pot roast and mashed potato ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Can't get more real, nice and tasty than this. Sure beats the crowds and impersonality of a big place.

“Where the locals go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Small place on the Main Street. Nothing fancy, but good food at a nice price. It's nice to skip the chain restaurants, and soak up some local color. Staff very friendly.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The food was fine, but the second time there the wait staff could care less that people were waiting to order. 20 minutes wait but never waited on. wasn't crowded just girl talk among the young waitresses. Wont return but place is popular.
