We arrived soon after a tour bus and were warned that service may be slow. However, drinks arrived quickly and our dinners did not take overly long to be served. Reasonable priced home cooking type food.....nice change after being "on the road" for several days. Clean bright & cheerful looking restaurant is attached to a gas station. Servers were cheerful...

Was there on a Sunday evening and had the buffet. Soup was scorched in pan, chicken was over cooked and all dried out as was all of the side dishes. Meals coming out of the kitchen looked good. Very pleasant staff.

The waiter was very nice. The food was average. I had pot roast, it was average. My Mom had a hot beef sandwich, it was average. My bf had a BLT, it was good. Nothing bad, nothing great. We were full.

Terrible food. A TV dinner would've been better. I ordered the roast turkey with potatoes & gravy, green beans and a side salad. The potatoes were instant. the green beans were cold and raw. Turkey treated like deli food. Both the lettuce and tomatoes were wilted. I'll never eat here again.

Where should I begin. I have been there at least 3 times now and every time I go the place has not been 1/2 full and the waitresses and waiters were too busy visiting with themselves and not the customers. Took 10 minutes to get a single glass of water, after the meal was dropped off the waitress/waiter did not... More

We ate a late lunch and decided to eat at Marlins since it was attached to the station we fueled at. They had a good selection of varied menu choices. I had a taco salad and it was ok. The lettuce and onions seemed to be out of the hamburger bin. The meat was not seasoned very well like a... More

Without being referred by someone, would have never stopped to eat here. It was located in a truck stop! Lots of locals - very busy the entire time we were there, but very short waiting times and the entire staff hustled, without making you feel rushed.

The servings are generous. We ate here for breakfast and decided to share an omelette as the portions were large. We were very pleased with the flavors and the choices. There are things to satisfy the sweet tooth or the savory if you prefer.

Nice family place right off the interstate. Server was new and didn't quite know what to do, but she will learn. Food was OK. Nothing special. I would compare this with a Shoney's or Frisch's restaurant.

I have never had a better breakfast that in this place. It is also very good for lunch. lots of parking (it is in a truck stop) and the place is always busy ---- that should tell you something.
