I use to visit this restaurant years ago and had not had the opportunity to revisit for quite some time because I was out of state, and I thought that it had closed for awhile. I was really glad that I returned to it and that the menu still had some of my old favorites that are not always easy... More

This place offers a great variety and the prices are reasonable. They have the best burgers and even many flavors of ice cream to choose from for dessert.

Several times we have eaten in this restaurant. Always food you can depend on. Ribs are a specialty of Dan the owner who is also the chef.

While visiting family in Amherst, Ohio we wanted to take them out for lunch and they recommended this little restaurant. The food was so good. There is a huge menu, anything you might want for lunch they had. The service was great, very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go there again when in Ohio.

From the outside, nothing special to look at. But you walk into the retro atmosphere of an indpt family-run restaurant, with a more... More
