“Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stopped at Lief's for lunch, right after the 4th of July parade. It was incredibly busy, but it didn't take us long to be seated. With that said, the food was good, but the service could have been much more pleasant. I asked for water with lemon in it and was told rather abruptly that they did not serve lemon. Surprising, but not the end of the world. As I said, it was very busy, so our waitress may have been feeling overwhelmed, which would account for her lack of tactfulness. We also waited a loooong time for our food. Again, it was probably because of how busy it was. I gave this restaurant 3 stars instead of 5 because of the impersonal service and because the food was just o.k. Perhaps next time we come to town we'll come for breakfast, since other reviewers are raving about it.

“Great Food and Great Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This was the first year that we had tried this restaurant and we did because the parking lot was always full. Now we know why. Great foods! We ate here for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner over our week long stay and were never disappointed. Great for families.

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely killer breakfasts, and great lunch and dinner. It's far less crowded on the inside than it might look with the packed parking lot outside. A must stop and eat if you're in Eagle River.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Fantastic breakfast spot. Service could've been friendlier, but we were there for the food. Really couldn't go wrong with the prices or the quality. Highly recommend!

“breakfast always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The most delicious breakfasts in town with breakfast available anytime. Many good burgers and specials too. Usually a wait on Sunday mornings as so many come here.
