We stopped at Gus's for such. This was a must visit on our visit to Plattsburgh. Of course we chose Breakfast. We both had omelets (meat and everything). Both were excellent. The home fries were to die for and who can resist rye toast... The coffee was excellent also. All the fixings for a perfect meal. The service was excellent... More

I did not eat at the hotel so I stopped here to have breakfast. Excellent, yes excellent choice. The prices are reasonable, breakfast is all day and they have lunch and dinner. I got two eggs hash toast and coffee. I will definitely be back here again the people that read my reviews know I like a good breakfast place.... More

She ordered the special which was stuffed roast beef on garlic bread with mushroom & onion gravy with french fries and cole slaw for $8.95. She swapped out the cole slaw for the mac... More

I eat here occasionally and the food is generally good. Wait staff is excellent! The biggest complaint I have is that in the winter it is cold in the restaurant. Many times I don't take my coat off. I have tried several different seats and it doesn't really matter.

We go by this place quite often, and they advertise their Michigan's heavily. Never had a Michigan, so it was time to try them. Ordered a platter with two Michigans, and the wife had the same with just one. Platter included two sides. We both chose the fries and coleslaw. They were good steamed franks with a chili type sauce... More

Today we stumbled upon this great establishment in plattsburgh. I've had Michigan's before but my colleague had not so the lovely waitress recommended a platter for us. Good choice! The food was good and the place was great. If I lived near by this would be my go to spot. Good times were had by all!

Thank Ian H
