Our family enjoyed breakfast for supper after working all day on our son's eagle project. Our service was top notch and the food was great. We were all very tired and starving for a big meal and we weren't disappointed, our omelets were ginormous! We will always go there for breakfast!!!!

My parents are regulars at this restaurant, and I ate there twice last week. The fare was reasonably good, but nothing special. On the first visit, my wife's order was wrong. They put American cheese in a mushroom (only) omelet. It's good for its small town atmosphere. It's build more like an old fashioned fast food/diner, not like a modern... More

Stopped in a half hour before closing which is risky sometimes. Five of us with some ordering dinner and some ordering breakfast. Everything came out hot and was very tasty. No complaints from even my pickiest of eaters. Under $32 for five meals was a good value.

Average food and price but always has excellent service. Numerous daily specials to choose from. It is easy to see that the restaurant was a fast food joint at one time.

Good fast service and classic diner food. I'd def reccomend stopping in here for a meal any time of the day. Always good to support a locally owned diner rather than something bigger where it'll not be as good.

First impression was that this place was dirty, the tables and chairs were mismatched and the white chairs had black dirt on the legs. When we got our order the waitress forgot to bring out part of our meal and the corn they served us clearly came from a can. I was skeptical that the main course was fresh as... More
