Service was awesome! Our waitress was very pleasant, helpful, & patient (we had 5 children). Food was good (I got the roast beef). Small family style restaurant. Food portions were plentiful. I would recommend this place to others.

Stopped for dessert -- the banana coconut pie was OUTSTANDING! get there early because when they're out of pie, they're out of pie for the day.

We ate on the front porch as we were still wet from the river. Inside was a 20 minute wait, but outside was right away. We did wait 30 minutes for our food (Pokemon players put on your incense and enjoy the Pokestop). The food was worth the wait. Mom and the hubby got an open faced roast beef sandwich... More

This place is great! Very simple but very good. The menu has all the basics and a few surprises. We went for breakfast and enjoyed anything from pancakes, French toast to eggs, bacon and biscuits. My only criticism is their biscuits. They were homemade which made me excited but they were dry and not much flavor. Everything else was really... More

The staff was really friendly & very eager to give service, almost too eager. I had bacon, eggs, potatoes with onions & a biscuit with gravy. My husband had the corn beef hash, he said it was nothing to brag about, just like store bought, the gravy was good. They do offer a smoking area that is enclosed, but not... More

Wanted to try something new for a late Saturday AM breakfast, remembered that someone had mentioned this to us a few weeks ago so decided to take the short drive to Dunnellon. Cute place, not fancy but very clean, it was fairly slow when we arrived at 11 AM and was told to sit where we wanted. The hostess was... More
