Went for breakfast and had a wonderful experience. You get in line and pick out drinks and put in your order. Then after paying they bring the food to your table. Everyone working there was overly friendly. The servers, the bus boys, the cooks, everyone. The food was great and everything comes out perfect and piping hot. They are attentive... More

This is a Cafeteria style breakfast restaurant which serves really fresh and tasty breakfast. We were a large party (10 people), and they accommodated us really well and almost instantly. We had omelettes (Veggie and Spanish), pan cakes, french toast and they all tasted really delicious. The staff was also very friendly and prompt, I would definitely recommend this place... More

This is my wife's and my favorite Sunday breakfast resturant. Ken and Dawn Kiousis are the most friendliest owners. Their breakfast menu is outstanding. We have a summer home there and from Memorial Day to Labor Day, our weekly breakfast spot is Stack 'em High. My favorite dish is the smothered hash brown potatoes with bacon and cheese. If you're...

The service was great and the food was as well. The cafeteria style worked out for getting our daughter some food quick while the rest of it was being prepared.

We were caught off guard by the cafeteria style setup as soon as we walked in the door. Get your drinks, order your food, pay for it, and then the wait staff comes over. Different, but a good system to keep things moving. It's hard to mess up breakfast food. Our party of 8 was satisfied all around. Pretty standard... More

Just a great breakfast! Had fried eggs and really good pancakes. A local favorite. Efficient service: you pick up certain items at a buffet (eg juice), place your order for the pancakes (or whatever), pay and the meal is delivered to your table.

Visited the restaurant for breakfast while on vacation and really enjoyed it. I had the pancakes with bananas and hash browns for the side. It's easy on the wallet. It's a nice place for a quick breakfast and the line wasn't long when I arrived. Food was quick to get to my table. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I... More
