“Tasty breakfast and friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

We spent the night in the motel (clean and inexpensive) and wanted a solid morning meal before a day of exploring Whidbey further. The difference between the evening atmosphere, when we checked in at the bar, and the morning is literally night and day. Definitely a place frequented more by locals than tourists in either case. Very good coffee to start, and the corned beef hash, two eggs over easy ( perfect) were excellent with a generous helping of hashbrowns. My companion ordered eggs Benedict, which was ample but the hollandaise tasted out of a packet. The sausage gravy needs more meat and black pepper. Nevertheless, mission accomplished. We both agreed is was a decent, clean place with good service.

“American Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Yummy Fish and Chips; the best item on the menu. It took awhile to receive my order but it was certainly delicious!

“Average food with poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

The food was like something you would get in any average eatery. The service was poor. We watched people who ordered after we did eat and leave before we were served. Disappointing.

“Poor Service!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We went there on a Sunday evening, and it wasn't too busy. We sat ourselves, and the waitress came over while one of our party was using the restroom. She left and then it took quite awhile for a waitress to come back over. The drinks and meals didn't take that long to be served, but to get anything extra- you had to do it yourself. We needed an extra straw, and asked the waitress. She said she would get one, never did. I had to go to the counter and ask. Same thing with creamer for the coffee. We had to ask for refills for water and coffee. I got my refill for the coffee- ice cold! We live in the next town over, but maybe you have to be local to get good service. I was not impressed and won't waste my time or money there.

“Not that great but it was there for breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

We needed breakfast. The only other place was packed. This wasn't that great but staff was friendly and price was right. Pancakes a little burnt. Hash browns a little dry. Toast ok. Cheese omelette quite good. This is a locals place. Lots of table hopping and table to table conversation. The staff knew the customers, for instance knew we were accidentally seated at a local customers regular Sunday morning table. I wouldn't hurry back but when you drive up you know what to expect as another reviewer says.
