Service was ok Food was ok. Took a while to get food and service. Was not a real friendly environment. Seemed like they were happy with thier regulars and didnt want more bussiness. Not a real clean place. Wont be going back again. Also limited parking.

We love the breakfast here, available all day long! Huge pancakes and delicious omelets. The staff makes you feel like you are part of the community with their welcoming smiles and friendly greetings.

A little hole in the wall place. I've been here twice. Food is not very good. Atmosphere is not great. I probably would not go back

Drove 50 miles to check out the town again, we'd earthen lunch here in the past so we're anxious to try breakfast. We were so glad we returned. Some of the best eggs Benedict I've gotten in ages, stuffed hash brown special was so good. Everything came out exactly as ordered, steaming hot & everyones food at the same time.... More

I'd heard good and bad things over the years but hadn't ever gone until this morning. We wanted a small town, old fashioned cafe instead of a place like Perkins, but weren't impressed at all. They weren't busy but the food was cold. I heard the cook ring the bell but the waitress waited to bring it. Most of it... More

It was a Sunday morning, and we remembered great pancakes and bacon.....and after a long wait the pancakes and bacon were cold. I never send things back but asked them to heat it up....they warmed up the pancake but the bacon was still 'cold'

Years ago this used to be a great little place to eat...especially breakfast. We recently had dinner here & it was horrid. Chopped sirloin, hash browns & corn....all of it absolutely tasteless except for the "old grease grill" essence which left an aftertaste to remember the awful meal by hours later..
