4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My son and I ate here yesterday, the service was quick, the people working there were friendly and the food was good and really filling, not expensive either. It seems to be a place where locals go regularly, because every time someone left, the workers would say " bye so and so, see ya tomorrow, or bye so and so,... More

We live in the area and we came in for lunch. I had the 2 piece fish with onion straws and my husband had fish, chicken and shrimp with fries,. Both meals were very good. Their onion straws are really good. And so was the fish. They are only open till 2 pm daily and are closed on Sunday.

Stopped here on the way home looking for a good meal. I wanted soup beans and corn bread and I found it here. Lots of good looking stuff passing by me, I'll be back.

We recently visited some friends in Waverly that we had not seen in 10 years and they took us there for breakfast the morning we left. The food was good and the small town atmosphere was great. I highly recommend this visit when passing through Waverly.

The food was not very good. I was impressed only with the look of the building but little else. Not recommended. Needs work

What a nice little diner. Friendly, quick service. Obviously favored by the locals. The prices on the regular menu are fairly average but the specials are tasty and inexpensive. As is the back-of-the-menu selection of sandwiches and hot dogs for under $2. We both had large bowls of ham and bean soup ($4). Lots of chunks of good ham in... More
