We’ve been to this restaurant a couple of times when visiting my daughter at school. The people are friendly and food is great. They also have breakfast on Sunday’s. It’s so much better than going to a diner.

Make sure you try this fantastic local restaurant. We had just a great all-around experience. The restaurant decor is classic - super friendly staff with excellent service and fantastic food. The chef does a great job making all of the classics and standard comfort foods.

Food was ok. Place needs to be up dated. Girl servicing me was very nice. Price was fair. The small town needs to move along the homeless people on main st.
