This is small town value - home cooked comfort food, local owner, great service! We were traveling through in our RV & stopped in for a home cooked hot lunch. Delightful!

Stop in around 7 AM for a breakfast that tastes like the home cooking you remember and listen to the locals chat about what is going on in the area. You will be cheerfully greeted and usually can choose your own seat. The coffee is good (we think) and refills are free. Choose a booth by the counter to have... More

Wife and I had a late lunch at this restaurant. Spent $26 including tip. Patty melt was cooked perfectly and I tried a "Frenchie", a burger on a nice soft French style bun, which was also cooked to perfection. Service was great with a smile. I would go here again!

We drove through picturesque Clarkston and spotted Jawbone. Love the name. This place is not fancy. Locals were playing checkers. Plants at front door and motivational signs thoughout. Best waitress ever named Janimae. I had meatloaf dinner & hubby had steak cuts dinner. Very tasty and generous portions. Jawbone is a downtown diner cafe with stick to the ribs food.... More

I love this place. It's like going home to eat. Walk in twice and they'll know you by name. Without a doubt they have the best Ribeye in the valley. And their Reuben sandwich is my favorite in town as well.

Only came here because my boyfriend relieved a gift certificate from work. Old diner. Didn't appear very clean. Kinda slow service and we had a hard time using our gift card when we tried to pay. Mediocre omelet. At least there's coffee. Probably won't be back, better places in Lewiston.

I would never eat here, milk was spoiled, owner argued with me that it wasn't even though the curdled bits were floating! She treats her customers with no respect. An african man was ignored and nose turned up at ..when he walked out the door she laughed with some locals and said damn nigers. I will never ever eat here... More

My wife & I stopped here for lunch after church, prompted by a coupon. We nearly left as soon as we arrived -- the floor was filthy & multiple tables had yet to be bussed. We were seated gruffly; the man who sat us had the personality of "Rainman". It gets worse: I ordered a french dip sandwich, my wife... More

The restaurant isn't fancy but it's very clean. The staff is friendly, the service is good, and the food is great! This is a favorite breakfast spot. They know how to cook eggs! I have tried several items on the menu from breakfast, lunch and dinner and they were all good.
