This is a typical diner that offers breakfast , lunch, or dinner at any time. Nothing special, but food was decent.

This 'diner' has an extensive menu along with daily specials. The service was great; the food was wonderful. We had a sandwich that was huge and also had homemade rice pudding and tapioca pudding for dessert. Don't miss it if you are in town!

It's ok for a mom and pop restaurant. The prices are high for the quality. Dennys is close by and has better food

My mistake! I saw perch on the menu and assumed it was lake perch. It was awful dry, fishy-ocean perch! However the cup of chicken dumpling soup was delicious. The kids servings were enormous! Staff friendly, clean establishment. My recommendation is ask about the menu don't assume. My daughter had a salad that was very fresh

I eat at this restaurant several times a month. Excellent food, friendly staff, small town atmosphere with many regulars.

First time in this city, here for a talk. Noticed how full the parking lot was, always a good sign. Seems like a popular seniors hangout. Fish and chips were good, service was great and servers, hosts friendly. Good sized portions and the clam chowder excellent. Sorry I ordered potato pancakes as a side: they were preformed patties from a... More

Stopped in to this nice little place to grab some lunch while in town on business. I had the gyro plate with onion rings. Very tasty.
