The family dinners were huge. Great turkey and roast beef. Nice, friendly service and decent prices.

“Good but not overwhelmingly good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The food was good as well as the service but I wouldn't put it in a category of, "I just have to get back there". The prices are reasonable and I really have no complaints. I guess it just wasn't my type of place. If your in St. Jacobs and want a decent meal and want to get in and out quickly to shop than this may be the place for you.

“Great food and come early to avoid the lunch lineups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I want to thank the recent reviewers for their help. I checked out the ratings and we decided to give this place a try. Very glad we did! Lunch was delicious and very reasonable. Am still full from the lunch special - roast beef. Melt in your mouth with lot of vegetables and creamy (real) mashed potatoes. Plan to head back soon to try their breakfast menu. Service was excellent and there was unlimited (excellent) coffee refills.

“You won't be disappointed. Don't let the lineup fool you.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I have been to eat at this restaurant on many occasions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have never had a bad meal or poor service.
There is almost always a lineup out the door but it moves very quickly and there is a place to sit while you wait.
The food is prepared fresh and the sauces are home made including the salad dressings. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous.
