Great family lunch in a cute little diner! All of the food we had was delicious... some had breakfast, some had lunch & everyone was happy. Service was friendly & good... never had to ask for refills. Food was up fast & hot. Highly recommend!

I love to go to this family owner place. The owners are the best. I love everything I have ever ordered there. My favorite is the country fried steak. I will always go back when I have time.

Stopped in for Breakfast on our way to go up the great river road and enjoy the fall colors. It is a diner that has been there for over 100 years. Food was good. Menu a bit confusing.
