My son and I went here for breakfast recently. Neither one of us like our food. I have heard for years that this was a good place to go for breakfast. The food was bland and so was the service

Well nothing special. I had potato skins but the potato part was so thick it wasn't really "potato skins." I'm pretty sure the bacon... More
