My husband and I went in for breakfast, we seated ourselves, as we noticed 2 other tables doing, and waited for a waitress. We sat there for 20 minutes and no one came to us! We even had 2 different waitresses walk past our table. We will highly recommend people to NOT go to your restaurant!

A true home town restaurant, not fancy, just good food at reasonable prices. Breakfast is excellent, well prepared and ample portions. Also occasional buffets if that's your interest.

We stopped here for lunch on the way back from The Windmill. Tiny small-town diner, not fancy. Menu had a lot of choices, waitress was friendly and efficient, had no problem with separate checks for the 4 of us. I (and one of the other women) had a Reuben sandwich which was EXCELLENT. The french fries were hot, had no... More

Great food with a small town feel. Has a lot of charm in the decor, friendly service, and overall it is the best restaurant in the Dundee area!

We were looking for a quick bite to eat before we did the wine tour on Seneca Lake. We stopped here and had a late breakfast/lunch. What a nice quaint little small town restaurant with fabulous food....and all desserts were homemade!!! The lemon meringue pie and chocolate cake were supreme!!!!

The menu isn't real extensive, but you can get breakfast all day. Just good, basic fare with a hometown feel. Not fancy, but good food and good, big portions-at a great price. Can't go wrong!

We often stop by for breakfast when over in that area. It's a great small town diner and breakfast is always good with fresh, hot coffee. This is the first occasion we have had to use them to cater an event, after having enjoyed their food at another event. We had three salads made to serve 50-55 people. Portions were... More

I hate to write negative reviews, especially when I am just passing through. The by line says "Real Food for Real People". I disagree. I ordered the Meatloaf because this looked like a meatloaf kind of place. It was dry and tasteless. The waitress was trying to keep up and was friendly but, she was in the weeds. I really... More
