Enjoyed a plentiful breakfast at Country Boy. It was very busy for a Monday morning. Our waitress was very nice. Food arrived hot. Liked that they left a thermos of hot coffee at our table! Will return!

Great food! Fast, hot, and plentiful. We had 4 adults and 3 kids under 10 and they got us in and served quickly. Loved the eggs benny but the whole menu is worth trying. We'll be back!

From the moment I walked in, I did not feel welcome. The environment was loud, the staff was rude, rushing me basically from the first minute. There was no 'thanks for coming in', it was just 'how many? okay, sit here. What are you having to start?'. After ordering my food: a simple breakfast dish with a half stack of... More

Friendly neighbourhood type restaurant. Be aware that if there is a line up, you may have to watch an endless reel of america's funniest video in the waiting area!!! The classic eggs Benedict is nice; perfectly poached eggs over slice of ham and smothered in classic hollandaise sauce. All this was accompanied by a mountain of fried potatoes. French toast...

I've been here a few times and tried different things each time. There burgers to me aren't worth the price. The patties are thin and tasteless. The fish and chips was very bland, the batter on the outside was golden but the inside was mush and I mostly peeled the fish out and ate it that way. The lasagna is... More

The owner is a strict business man with a well run establishment. The food is very good and the menu has a wide variety of selections. The servers are polite and friendly and the owner meets and greets his customers with a personal address and a sense of humor.

Good place for breakfast nothing fancy very affordable. Does get quite busy usually weekends expect to wait in line. Service is okay and not bad for a cheap breakfast.

This is the best place to go for Sunday morning breakfast. Try to go early to avoid the lineup but if not its worth the wait. Veey satisfying and good service.

Not a review on the food - but the atmosphere. The old person, maybe the owner seating people should not be out front. All he says is "how many" - "how many", "stand here". How about adding, Good morning or thanks for coming in, how many in your group? And the way he talks to his staff in front of... More
