Maybe when she was alive it was good. But shortcuts now. Things taste canned. The mashed potatoes taste odd. Look at the stuff you can buy in the refrigerator. The ingredient list. Not good.

Inedible macaroni and cheese, dried to a crisp. Watery salad and cold greasy food. Salty gravy, very inefficient staff. Hostess also buses tables causing long wait for seating. She deserves a gold star for what she does do though. Geriatric customers primarily.

Felt like home when exhausted from driving. Loads of comfort foods and home cooking. Wish they were closers to our home. Great prices and friendly staff.

The place was quite crowded but our food came within 15 minutes. Pork chops, crab cakes, sides, apple pie, cookies, and fresh baked rolls, all very tasty. The crab cakes actually had significant amounts of crab meat in them. Staff was friendly and efficient. Another...More
