You want to like this place, but for us, the food barely passable; nothing special. Friendly place and the service is good. Portions are large; the food just isn't very good. Had the pork chops, mashed potatoes and gravy and field peas. Daughter had grilled cheese sandwich, which was nicely toasted and she was happy with it. My chops were... More

This place use to be a great place for breakfast and lunch. The quality of food has been falling for years. Go to Fat Jacks for Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Had breakfast here and it wasn't bad. The coffee here is awful, the food itself was pretty good. Service was above average.

I visited this breakfast/lunch restaurant at about 8:30am during the week. Its a small restaurant and I was looking for some great find; however, this restaurant wasted my time & money. To begin the restaurant clearly hasn't had a good scrub down in a while; however, aside from the borderline filthy environment I waited 35 minutes for ham, potatoes, &... More

There was a time this was the only place I would eat. It changed for the worst. They use to give you BIG portions at a reasonable price. Now its just like everybody else.

If you are looking for a home cooking kind of diner, this is it. All the standard breakfast fare and a great lunch menu as well. Have been eating there for 5 years and I think most of the staff is still the same.
