“Recommended by a Friend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

My chicken dish was boring and lame. For the price, it wasn't a return locale.

“Delicious food, great value, friendly waitresses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

I come here so often because the food is great and always fresh, the staff are the friendliest anywhere, and Paula's carrot cake is the best I've ever had. Recommended: tuna salad platter, omelettes, salmon cakes, meatloaf, soups, fruit cobbler, and daily specials.
