I ordered a Philly steak and it was not steak it was roast beef. The man that gave us the menus was rude. I said thank you and he just looked at us. Establishment was clean as well as the restrooms.

We enjoyed our noon time breakfast in this pretty town surrounded by fall colored mountains. The food was very good and our waitress efficient and pleasant. Would definitely go again.

Most memorable is the huge portions - be prepared to take most of it home. There is a great selection of dishes! The cost is low and the quality is OK. The atmosphere is very friendly and I enjoy eating dinner there after skiing at Windham.

I wish there was something between Average and Very Good. Average sounds so negative but I wouldn't say it was "very good" based on my experience. This place was good. Burger was good. Service was good. Fries were coated with batter. Not really my preferred style, but if you like those kinds of fries, they were good. Place was busy... More

The diner, on the main street or this beautiful Catskill Mountain town, serves good, down home, American fare. The service was good, and the atmosphere was very quiet.

The food is good, the service is good, the folks are friendly and happy. The portions are large, and everything is clean and neat. What more can you ask for? I've gone back a few times when I'm in the area.

I couldn't believe food this good could be created in a town during summer in the mountains. More than impressed, I think I won't eat anywhere else. So, now I will starve to death. Thank you for my demise micheals. I will wait in the afterlife to eat again. All the people who work at micheals (front and back) are... More

4 of us ate here during a motorcycle trip and were very happy with the service, prices, portions and quality of the food. Try the spinach & feta egg white omelette!
