“Expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I felt the food is way overpriced. Also, salads were not cold enough for me.

“Rotating menu of homecooked comfort food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This restaurant is a nice option if you want to go out to an (early) dinner and aren't quite sure what you want. The hours are limited - no late dinners here. The menu is a constantly changing mix of salads, quiches, pot pies, peppered with your dinner standards like chicken, turkey, lasagna, meatloaf, etc. They have different kinds of iced teas, and soda. They also have a nice selection of baked goods, like breads, muffins, cookies, and pies. The dining area is a good size - never crowded. The restaurant itself is in an interesting location - in Delta Township by the library. I think they'd do better moving a little bit more centralized - but it's worth the trip at least once. Service is a little touch-and-go -- have had good service and extremely cranky service. Also it doesn't appear that someone goes through and cleans the dining room as often as they should after someone gets up from the table. I've had to ask them to clean off a table the last 3 times I've been there.

“Awesome food, a little pricy..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

We love to eat here and the food is delicious, but it is a little pricy to make it a regular dinner spot. We opt for lunch as its much more affordable. Great salads - something for everyone. Main courses are nothing short of great. Try the quiche!
