They put us at a table right infront of the cash register. So close I could not get into my seat and when we moved the table over about a foot the waitress was terribly rude! She did not come over and introduce herself just...More

Hotel recommended this place, and it was exactly what we had hoped for. Varied menu, great portions, and very tasty. Everyone was happy with their orders. Cozy, casual atmosphere makes you feel at home. Would love to try the whole menu Hope to revisit someday

On our annual motorcycle trip we stopped on the way through. Great food and great prices. Well worth the stop. Have in past years stopped here as the food is so good.

Great breakfast spot. All the in house made sausages are amazing. Nice little diner and it is where the locals seem to go. No questions asked next time I pass through will stop here.
