“Basic?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The menu is varied, the cost is average and the taste is bland? Most of the time we end up going to this restaurant because the other local spots are closed. Salads are not worth dirtying the plant - they claim they have added tomatoes back into the salad - hothouse and flavorless. Portions are decent.

“not our favorite but local”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

ok service, menus never change, so much better now that they don't let anyone smoke but it still lingers in the air. We didn't eat here for years becasue of the stinky smoke smell. We have a child with asthma so not a hot spot for us.

“Small town version of Denny's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I have eaten here several times, both at the original location, and the new one they are at now. The food is always good. They have a nice selection of everything from breakfast to dinner. The service isn't always the fastest, but it's friendly. The owners are great people and the value is unbeatable. The restaurant is clean and bright, with lots of windows.

“Very good eats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We ate at this restaurant 3 times. The food was very good. There was a little bit of a wait...not fast service...but everyone was pleasant and the dinner and breakfast were delicious. Prices are very reasonable, too.
