The server's do "their thing" on that side and they are so Unbelievably LOUD, cacophonous, and obstreperous that My husband and I couldn't even carry on a conversation because we couldn't hear each other over the server's! And we're not senior citizens w/ hearing aids! We... More

When I travel, I dont like eating at places I can go to at home. Althought it looks like this is a chain, it was new to me. And even though it is a chain, it felt like a local mom-and-pop place, which I really like. The place is very informal, yet personal. The service was quick and friendly, even... More

This was a first time visit and the food was great. Large portions of food that tasted delicious. It is some what expensive but the quality of food and the friendliness of the staff makes it well worth it.

Even though there has always been a wait to be seated here it is worth it. Their breakfast anytime is wonderful. The choice of the old standard eggs, meat, hash browns and toast has never been a disappointment.

We were the unlucky table that got the blonde waitress with the blue t-shirt (everyone else had red ones) who was in a bad mood! First, she brought one glass of water for 4 people. Then when it was time to order, we were ready. We first asked for 3 mire waters & lemons before ordering the food. Before we... More

We had a party of 12 persons and everyone was elated with this wonderful food. The chicken fried steak, the omelettes, the tenderloin sandwiches, and the burgers were all exceptional. I must stop if you're in the area.
