The food was good, service not so much. I think she forgot I was sitting there. Was happy to fill my husbands ice tea but my water sat empty.

I order mine cooked medium. 2. The burger large...very large burger, in fact, like eating a steak. 3. Served with homemade chips, crispy and warm.... More

We were a party of 12 for breakfast. I had my standard eggs, real pork sausage patties, hash browns, toast, and coffee. My wife had pancakes and a side of bacon. Food was great, waitress reasonably attentive, and breakfast for me and the wife was only $22 - pretty reasonable.

We come here regularly. We recently had party of ten everything went smoothly. Took a while to get tables put together for large party they gave complementary coffee and hot chocolate to several in party. Waitress was very attentive to our needs. We were served fresh homemade bread before meals it was delicious. There breakfasts are very good too.

It is sad to see it going down and such a decline as the owner has not invested new remodeling into the restaurant. I have noticed there are missing partitions between booths, where you feel like you're sitting with the next person. There... More

As if approximately 1 month ago, our booths have not had any duct tape. We are planning an upgade. As an informed consumer, I'm sure you are aware of what all that involves. Not to... More

This is my fave brunch and munch place on the weekends. Even when it's crowded everyone that works there is kind, professional, and go out of their way to be courteous and friendly. Whereas other local places are booked out for 1/2 hour or more this place keeps on trucking and service is prompt but you never feel rushed. The... More
