I read the reviews yesterday searching for some place different from Denny's or Cracker Barrel and I love to fund family owned business's, I like the fact that the whole family is involved in the business and the fact that one of the young daughters...was the hostess, GREAT JOB teaching work ethics. On the other hand the was mediocre at best I ordered the Sausage and Bacon Skillet now in the wording you would think that it would be served in a pipping hot skillet right? No so the name should not be SKILLET, my wife ordered the Three Fruit Crepes, now I have not cooked professionally in a restaurant setting in more than 30 years however there Crepes were not cooked completely i.e. still a bit slimy and the fruit that was added did not taste good, the fact that my 2 year old grandson would not eat it is a testament to how bad it was. On a final note the tea that my wife had had a funny taste.More

The place is a little bit of a dive, but the quality of the food is very good and the prices are even better. The liver and onions are great.

Food was very good. Salad fresh, soup yummy. We have been going there for 8 years. It is owned by a very nice couple. The lady and her mother make all the yummy desserts and Italian food. I would recommend going early or late (before7)...for the fish fry. It is really good.More

Spouse belongs to a group that plays cribbage there and he forgot his vest after the game. So, we went there for dinner and retrieved the vest. Not much to look at on outside of building on one end of strip mall. Lots of parking....OK but somewhat old fashioned decor. Seated quickly and offered menu. Neither of us were really hungry, so we chose sandwiches. Spouse had the Reuben and I had French Dip. Neither of us wanted fries. Took longer than I expected for 2 sandwiches, but both orders had plenty of meat and spouse's Ruben was toasted. We exchanged sandwich halves to vote on who chose the best order. This time, both were equally very good and just enough to fill us up. We got outta there for just over $20, including tip. It's quite a drive through traffic from our home so we probably won't go back for a meal - unless spouse forgets something again....More

This was a great find. Recommenced by front desk staff at Quality Inn & Suites. Closes at 8pm and serves breakfast all day. They have salads, sandwiches, dinners (w/ 3 sides). A small bar with probably 10 different bottle beers and spirits. Enjoyed dinner here...two consecutive nights (FR/SA). The price on the menu includes tax.More

Been going here for over a year, good service, good food, fair prices, homemade desserts. Pop in any time and quick hello from hostess, server quickly gets your drink order.

Like many other reviews I have to say this place USED to be good. We stopped going a while back because we noticed a substantial drop in quality and service. My wife got a bowl of soup that had a paper towel in it that...she didn’t find till halfway through the soup. Another time our friend couldn’t get the waiter to understand he didn’t want ketchup on his meatloaf. So we stopped going. We recently decided to give another try hoping they returned to their former glory and were sorely disappointed. Today my wife sat down and was waiting for me to get there when the server tried to give her coffee in the previous diner’s cup. The level of service quality at this place is not just bad, it is disgusting. DO NOT EAT HERE!More

I've eaten here several times. The large menu is varied, and I've never had a bad meal here. Most recently, I've enjoyed the Royal Salad with tuna. I think it's excellent. I also have enjoyed the veal parmesan, rib eye steak and other selections. Their...vegetable soup is very tasty. The barbeque baby back ribs were really good, with house made sauce served on the side. The service is always friendly and efficient. Cudos to the servers! Their German chocolate cake was served drizzled with hot chocolate and whipped cream. It was outstanding!More

Last time, I said this place wasn't great but wasn't awful either. Well, I forgot what I had written, so we went again. First, it smelled. Really bad. Like toilet water. Second, the gravy was really salty, and all of it was frozen or canned....Third, the place is dirty. I will not go back. I'm surprised it is still open, because it keeps getting worse.More

very good food on special items during fridays. I like the large shrimp or cod. Both are very good, with 3 side items from a large variety of choices. It makes the week ending a day or nite of not cooking at home fun.

We ate here on Christmas Day. Their regular menu was not being used as they had a special holiday menu. Out of the 3 specials we chose the special seafood dinner: 6 shrimp & a lobster tail with cheesy broccoli, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy...& a slice of pie. The restaurant was at capacity all day but the staff was on top of it. Not much waiting and the food was very good. They have a wide menu of choices. By the way, their coffee and desserts are only $0.99. Stop in!More
