If you like visiting those places that are locally owned then this is one for you. The meal was great, the atmosphere was quaint, and the service was personable.

One of our go to places for a quick food lunch. Service is always good and friendly. Food is always good and the tasty. Atmosphere is “casual strip shopping center”. Nice menu variety.

I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. The restaurant is quite small but gives it a quaint feel. The same servers have been working there for years and make you feel like family. My personal favorites are the cheeseburger...More

Eat here often. Good menu selection and food. Service is very good and servers are friendly. They have several home made dessert options. Consistency and good food is what I look for in a place to eat and they have it all here.

This will be a short review but they really deserve one. I’ve eaten here for years and I’ve never been disappointed. I absolutely love their tuna melts but they have a ton of other stuff to choose from. Their homemade strawberry cake is sooo good....More
