Had the Fishermans Breakfast. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, coffee. There had to be at least 3 scrambled eggs! Order this one only if really hungry! Super fresh eggs.Bacon a little under cooked. Good prices. Service was fine.Pancakes were ok. Didn't try any pie,but they looked great.

On a Sunday night, the food was decent though they were out of several items. The prices were also reasonable and the staff was friendly.
