We were there for several nights and was expecting to visit JoAnn's for breakfast since it was very close to where we were staying. Even though the website and the note on the front door said they should be open...they were never open. After mentioning this to a couple of locals...they said JoAnn's decides when they wanna be open.....they didn't... More

It's a kind of place that looks like it would have sub par food, but it was great. Everything out table had tasted great (onion rings, fries, burgers). They had some good local beers, and the service was very good. decently priced for being in the mountains too.

This is a nice spot to stop for breakfast or lunch but you have to have 2 hours to eat as they are almost always understaffed

We had your basic hamburgers there but they are pretty big 1/2 lb. creations. You can get bottom less sodas for $2.95 as well. Nothing exceptional but if you are in the mood for a burger, this is a good stop. One stall restrooms for a large facility encourages a line up.

The server we had was nice and provided good service, however, the food was only eatable. Flavor was very basic and the menu did only listed the name of the food, not a description. We sat outside to be able to enjoy the live music being played in the BBQ area outside of the restaurant. We would not go back... More

Dined outside in 75 degrees, with live music, friendly service. BBQ, salads, general diner menu all clean and nicely presented. Had the finest hamburger in 10 years. Not greasy and super tasty. Enjoyed local craft beer. Live music during the local jazz festival weekend featuring Richie Cole, Roy McCurdy, Ernie Watts and many more.

Run do not walk away from this restaurant. Though the prices indicate that you would be getting quality food it is quite the opposite. We experience probably the worst meal we have ever experienced in our lives , just terrible. Way too many choices in this town to spend your money there
