“MUCH Better Than CookieCutter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Very good food, good service, and friendly staff. Prices are plausible. Try it, you may want to eat there OFTEN.

“Steer Clear!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

There's little I can say good about this restaurant. The food is very substandard, overcooked, and unfit for the price. The staff was indifferent and spent more time socializing between themselves than helping their guests. There are too many good restaurants in town for the average budget than wasting your time at this one. Steer clear.

“Crab cakes with no crab”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Now I understand that this place is far from the ocean but I expected atleast a "taste" of crab in the cake. They were frozen, hard as rocks! The "spiced apples" were horrible. The only thing I could eat was the baked potato even though the only butter they had was the frozen little tabs. My boyfriends Hamburger steak was actually cubed steak with gravy. He enjoyed the mashed potatos, he said they were real. This is not a place I will ever eat again. Not to mention it smelled like mold and the bathrooms were discusting. Disapointing as we always look to the local places for the best food. This is not that place- Where is "Restaurant Impossible"??

“Would not go back for lunch/dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

I don't know about the breakfasts here (hear they are good) but we went to lunch on a day their air conditioning was broke which was unpleasant; my child said her chicken was really great; but my meal was just average and I would not return for lunch/dinner
