We stopped in for the first time this morning. Small home town feel. Seated ourselves. One waitress who appeared to be overwhelmed. She lacked personality and customer service. Our coffees took a bit and other tables got theirs before we did despite our ordering first....More

I went with a business partner for lunch. I had a sandwich and fries and she had the vegetable plate. Really nothing to write a great review about. I had high hopes. I could tell that there were regulars that got most of the servers...More
