Went there for coffee and dessert. So many choices. Would be great with several friends each making a different choice then getting bites of each pie, cake, cheesecake. Delicious.

Omelets are huge and delicious. Local police officers frequent the restaurant. Clean and service is usually good.

Stopped for a late lunch. Pretty busy but was seated without waiting. Food quality and service are the best in town. Everything on menu has been great. I have eaten here many times and never been let down. It is definitely worth the drive!!!

We had checked into our hotel and checked Trip Advisor for restaurants. It did not steer us wrong. The popcorn shrimp dinner was enormous and delicious. The Greek Salad was out of this world. I ordered it with gyro meat...wow.

We were seated and served quickly and the food was delicious. They have an amazing cake menu, but we were too full from our meals to sample it.

This is a small old fashioned diner in the Best Western. Expansive menu, food quality of a Denny's or IHOP. Prices equivalent to Cracker Barrel. Expect wait of 15 min. I would only go back for dessert. They get their desserts from a bakery and they looked terrific. Not sure of prices.

I had the fried seafood combo...perfect. She had the Reuben & I sampled it. I've had better Reubens but, I'm not knocking this one...it's a very good contender. Now onto the cakes & pies. Soooo many to choose from. She had the Key Lime & I had one of the many chocolate cakes...can't remember the name but, it's the one... More

Driving home from Florida and used trip advisor to find food. The outside of this place is underwhelming but don't let that stop you from eating there. HUGE portions, reasonably priced, great 👍 food. They could easily serve you portions half the size of what you get for the same price. And did I mention a never ending 5 🌟... More

This place is in a Best Western at this exit 5 that sports more motels than perhaps any exit in America. There's also one downtown attached to a Days Inn. Open 24 hrs. We've already eaten there twice. Late night carryout gyro hoagie last night with the most decadent chocolate cheesecake imaginable. Breakfast today, all quite tasty. Excellent service. May... More
