When I lived there I was a regular, now I try to get back whenever I am in the area. Had lunch the other day, just great, great to see Fran, owner and long time waitress Laura. Had the monte cristo, made with fresh carved turkey that was better than most thanksgivings. Also the grilled cheese, tomato and bacon. All... More

I can honestly say that I've never had a bad meal here. The corn beef hash and eggs are delicious. There are so many options to choose from. I like the grits scrambled eggs sausage and rye toast. I can clearly understand why the locals love it here.

Allison their portions are not large and you might have to order another pancake or another egg but their food is spot-on good and if you're staying in Madison specially at the Madison Beach Hotel we're not going to find nothing for restaurants for at least 28 to 32 minutes so I would advise you to look in this direction...

Had breakfast on a Sunday and even though they were busy we were seated and served promptly. Food was accurately served and we were pleased. Prices could be a tad lower.

My family comes here every weekend and we are familiar with all the places along the shoreline. The breakfast menu is well done and complete and the service is friendly and fast. Lunch selections are limited but OK. For breakfast you will not be disappointed

Pretty great place to eat! I was traveling through Clinton, and decided to stop for a bite to eat. The food is pretty solid with a lot of choice. Great bang for your buck here. Seems like a lot "locals" come here.
