“Great food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great food but they need to work on the atmosphere of the place .We would have stayed and had a few drinks if we did not feel like we were in a high school cafeteria.
super friendly staff also

“A road trip meal.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The food was average, we had two meals here. Service was all right but nothing special. A little slow but we weren't in a hurry. Variety of drinks from the bar was limited, we had to go through several choices before we found one they could fix. The bar was busy the next morning at 7:30 which surprised us. If there had been a restaurant closer to our hotel we would have gone elsewhere but all in all we were satisfied enough with dinner to give breakfast a try and breakfast was better.

“Really enjoyed the food”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had some drinks in their lounge and then had supper. The drinks were reasonably priced and the food was very good. The service was friendly and the prices reasonable.

We stayed next door at the Best Western and as part of the motel stay we received a breakfast voucher at Juicy's. The breakfast options for the motel voucher were limited but the food was, as before, great.

“You really have to try the fried noodles!!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Spent the night at the Best Western next door and they offer 10% off at Juicy's...since it was so convenient we decided to walk over for dinner....boy were we glad we did! The whitefish and clam dinner was huge and tasty, thewhitefish diner was also huge and more than one could eat when also trying the soup of the day which was excellent clam chowder, nice and thick and lots of clams. The waitress, Kimberly B talked us into trying the "free appetizer" which was a fried fettacini alfredo which sounds awful but is really really good. Not sure how they manage to hold it together to fry it but the coating is light and it really comes together well and has a great taste. Would order it again and order less other food since we couldn't use a take out box for the leftovers. Too stuffed for dessert but they looked awesome. Would go back here in a heartbeat. Pretty sure that Guy Fieri (Diner, Drive in and Dives) would rave about this "diner/dive" and certainly like there signature fried noodle appetizer. Well done Juicy's....Arrived during happy hours but the regular prices were so reasonable it wouldn't have mattered....more than we could eat and drink for about $32.00 including a generous tip.
