I went to college in Mt. Pleasant, but had never heard of this place. Now live abt 20 minutes away in Fairfield. My husband and I decided to give the cafe a try for lunch. First, you seat yourself, although they don't have a sign or anything. Luckily, we came in at the same time as some others, and just followed their lead. Our waitress was civil at best, not friendly at all. I tried to order a crabby burger, but they were out. I ended up ordering a side salad and some cottage cheese. The cottage cheese never arrived, and our waitress disappeared, so all I had was a salad. It was bagged lettuce, a few cucumbers, two cherry tomatoes, a whole bunch of onions and a packet of ranch dressing. They don't even make their own dressing! Also, hopefully you aren't thirsty-- you get a can of pop and a glass of ice, and since you never see your waitress again, you won't be getting any refills. My husband had chicken strips and steak fries. The chicken was ok, nothing special. We also didn't see the huge portions that everyone was talking about. The steak fries were not crispy or seasoned. The last thing I wanted to mention-- when you are paying here, make sure you pay attention to the charges. Our waitress put the ticket up front, still having written down that I got a crabby burger, and no mention of the salad I ordered. I had to explain to the guy checking us out that there were no crabby burgers available, and that I had a salad instead.
Honestly-- my advice would be that if you are looking for somewhere to eat in Mt. Pleasant, check out one of the restaurants in town, there are many good ones. If you don't mind driving a little, and want this same type of food, check out Mike and Nikki's in Fairfield. They have a bigger menu with this type of food, and their food is all homemade-- no packets is ranch dressing. Also, the waitresses are much nicer, and the prices are better.
