Casual restaurant visited by both local and travelers. Wall shelves loaded with modesl of lighthouses...that their customers have brought to them. Very large portions, and very good meals.

Had to wait but great food and polite wait staff. Would go again! Lots of choices on the menu. For health conscious and not!

I tried this place before and it wasn't that bad something's gone wrong lately we had lunch we got served the wrong meal they had to throw it out because it was supposed to be for someone else. There are open sugar containers on each table and we spotted one of the waitresses spraying some cleaner on the table which... More

Last time I was in OS, this restaurant was at their smaller former location which I never found comfortable due to the tight seating and the open kitchen which meant the cooking smells were throughout the dining area. The new location has a much larger seating area, a bit more parking space, and the kitchen is closed off from the... More

We have had breakfast several times over the past several years--mainly at the old location and twice at the new place. Unfortunately, something has gone wrong. In the past, the food was great. Friends warned us that it has gone downhill, but we wanted to try it again. We were disappointed. The wait was long, though it was past the... More

This place really looked promising but it failed to deliver. The flips (pancakes) were rather bland; even toppings/stuffing did not help at all. The Cinnamon Raisin French toast should have been flavorful but was tasteless, and worse, mushy in spots. The orange juice was fresh squeezed, we think, and was the best part of our meal.

We have had breakfast at JAMSS many times and have loved it. Today we went for lunch and were amazed at just how awful it was. First, we were the only two people in the place and it took 25 minutes for our soup and sandwich to be served. The order, as served, was incorrect. I was supposed to have... More

I am not a huge fan of breakfast...Unless it's from J.A.M.S.S. I crave their Italian sausage omelet with home fries and pumpernickel bread. This is my goo breakfast and I don't even need the menu. My boyfriend lives their skillet with jalapeños, sausage, Cheddar, potatoes and topped with a fried egg. We have tried to replicate these breakfasts at home... More

This is the best place we've found for breakfast, good size menu and very different. Have never had anything we didn't like.
