First stop was for a take out breakfast. Waited for over 10 minutes before leaving since no one even provided a menu or stopped by to ask what I wanted to order. Second visit was to have lunch. There were so many employees and we had two maybe three stop by our table before actually ordering. When we did order... More

Soup/Salad bar excellent. Quantity of food is excellent. All food is prepared in house in small batches, giving it great flavor

Not high end cuisine but a 'Denny's" type home made food place. Service tends to be a little slow so don't be in a hurry,. But the portions are good and it has a great view and breakfast buffett.

I loved this place. Home style cooking.. One of the few places that offer soup and salad bar at no extra cost with the meal. Reasonable priced. Very friendly.

I've gone to this restaurant with my elderly mother a few times. It used to have fairly good food at reasonable prices. Our last couple visits (lunch and then another time breakfast) the food was boring and bland. For lunch I got a dried out burger that I could barely swallow. Mom got soup that tasted like it came out... More

This is your typical diner that could use some updating but the food was really good. I had the Sourdough Pancakes and they were spectacular!

I typically would not write a negative review as every business has an off day but this place is all together off. One look at their advertised "all you can eat salad bar" should have sent me running. 4 items and 2 were empty, iceberg lettuce and old cucumbers. My husband ordered a philly cheese steak sandwich, when it arrived... More

After a salmon fishing trip on the Anchor River that began at 2 am, we were looking for a place to have a warm breakfast! This was one of the only places open at 7 am! Our waitress was very pleasant and our food actually very good. Hearty home style breakfast and not expensive at all. Would definitely return...

We drove into town to try "something off the Homer Spit". This restaurant is ok. It was very busy when we were there, and it looked like it was full of locals (so it must be popular). It took a while to take our order, and longer to get our food. The children were getting tired of waiting. The staff... More
