Busy truck stop, diner-like but, nicely decorated. Visited on a weekday around 8:30am. Ordered "belly buster" special. Food was fresh and hot, coffee good; the only issue was I didn't get what I ordered. I ordered 2 eggs over hard and emphasized my desire for the eggs to be thoroughly cooked all the way through and also mentioned, "dead" and... More

The 10 oz sirloin was overcooked, the baked potato was under cooked, green beans were rubbery, iced tea was colored water, and the side salad was mostly uneatable. The manager seamed to care about our opinions and that is why they got a rating higher than 0. If we do go back it will just be for breakfast and we... More

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.
