Read we could bring our dog. Bought a Groupon. Very pleased! Wife had massive BLT piled high with bacon. I had biscuits and gravy. Excellent! Dog had doggie pot pie and wolfed it down! Service was great. We'll return...Groupon or not!

Service was pleasant but slow. Food was average. Prices seemed ok, except for $3.00 ea. coffee. First time visit for us. Place didn't seem clean. Much better choices available. Doubtful, we'll go back.
