Okay food

We rode our bicycles on the Western Maryland Rail Trail and the C & O canal trail and needed lunch. We ate the buffet and the food was fair. The restaurant does need an upgrade as the carpet an cables are showing their age. It was a quick and easy meal and would give them a three.

Mediocre at best. Seems to be popular with the locals. Not worth a visit and there are other restaurants in the area that are much better for the same price.

We stopped here on our bike ride along the C&O Canal. We visited here after riding 65 miles, so we were hungry and thirsty. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The drink glasses were never empty and the food portions were huge. We had two appetizers, two dinners and two desserts. The food was tasty and filling while remaining... More

Stopped here for dinner while traveling on 70. This place is in serious need of updating. My son had the honey fried chicken. The chicken had been frozen and the pieces were small. I had the Cajun catfish which was on special. Fish was musy. Looks like they took a frozen piece of catfish added Cajun seasoning and struck it... More

Your classic small town restaurant. Not great but good to be there anyway. Apple Pie was wonderful. The sandwiches were not so great.

This is a great little place to go when spending the night during a trip on the C&O. Service is swift and the food is good and reasonably priced. We had the buffet for $11 which had a ton of fresh salad items, four or five selections of salmon, turkey, beef stew, etc. and some great potatoes and vegetables.They buy... More

This is a really good place to stop between Baltimore/Washington area and points West. Plenty of parking, easy access to the freeway and good quick service.

The only breakfast place that actually opens breakfast hours, Park N Dine covered the basics. Our food was quick and quite good. Normal breakfast menu with few frills. Service could be more, well, service, but it all got done.

Good food and good prices. Enjoyed my chicken-fried steak with two sides – I went with macaroni salad and sweet potato fries; there are healthier options. Finished up with a nice slice of apple pie. Good, affordable country-style restaurant.
