Several of us went. Food was served over cooked but cold. Coffee was hot and plentiful, if you like dishwater style coffee, but refills are free so that was nice. People in the next table over were really complaining but did not complain to their waitress because she didn't come for 10 minutes after service. Our eggs over light were... More

This place has been a favorite of mine for years, it is family owned and operated for decades. The food is always consistent and the staff are very friendly. Believe it or not the roast turkey really is roast turkey, not like most chain restaurants. Good breakfasts, lunches and dinners, with daily specials every day. I would recommend this place... More

My daughter ordered an omelette with bacon and ham. $4.75 for omelette, $2.00 for ham, $2.00 for bacon-$8.75 for omelette. If I ordered the meat lovers omelette, with bacon, ham and sausage, the cost would have been $7.00. I asked the waitress about this, and got no where. Be cautious when ordering. I realize it's only $1.75. I still don't... More

I enjoy coming here for breakfast. The service is back and forth. Some servers are great, others are very sassy (which I get, some people enjoy that). Parking can be a mess, fyi.

The problem with this restaurant is the two old waitresses (especially the brunette). I don't know her name and after the way we were treated the last time, I don't think we will be going back anyway. What has hurt this place? A lot of the reviewers comments are true. You have to pull teeth to get a refill. I... More

I live locally and love going there for breakfast. You always have a cup full of good hot coffee. The food is good and the staff is very friendly. The prices are excellent. They always have homemade soups as well. If I was traveler, I would want to go to a local restaurant like BFR.

Very friendly neighborhood family restaurant. They have a lot of local regulars. Once they get to know you, you are treated like family. Really good breakfasts there.

The food was lack luster. The center cut pork chops were very tough and not trimmed like a center cut. The baby beef was dry and the cold gravy did not help. The stuffing was tasty and we enjoyed the lima beans. The salad bar was scant but ok. The service is poor. Drink refills are difficult to get. No... More

My wife and I won a gift certificate at a fund raiser for two meals here some time ago and decided to use it last evening. The restaurant wasn't crowded at our 5:45 p.m. arrival time and overall the décor and feel is minimalistic but overall it was very clean. Our server was very friendly and attentive to our needs...
