“Decent Breakfasts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I had breakfast here a couple of times this past weekend. Large portions and perfectly acceptable, but nothing special. Based on some of the other reviews, I'm not sure I'd try anything from their lunch or dinner menus, but breakfast is served all day so I didn't need to worry about that.

“Gross, cold and unappetizing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

The food took a long time, and it showed. Eggs, toast and biscuits were stone cold. Corned beef hash was too salty to eat, and my hubby's bacon was greasy and barely warm. Water glasses were dirty, and the coffee tasted old and burned. Horrible, we will not be back!!

“Sunday Breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Use to go every Sunday for breakfast but no more. Over the years any money made has been taken out and not spent on restaurant. Floors are dirty and sticky. Seats are worn and ripped. Tables worn and chipped. Food is good and the staff when we were there were friendly and very busy. But what got me the most was last summers bugs and flies in the window sill. Money spent on new flooring and tables chairs and booths and a complete clean up would move this place from 2 to 3 or maybe a 4 restaurant.

“Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The service was excellent, the eggs (omelette made into a scramble) were perfect, home fries barely OK, toast hard (but I could have had her redo it, so that is my fault as well), prices not budget. I imagine the decor hasn't changed in 30 years so kind of depressing.
