“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Went there recently for dinner. We had the greek salad and the mixed seafood grill.
All were mediocre at best. Nothing to recommend except the waitress who was wonderful.
Don't waste your money or time!

“Mediocre”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Ok for breakfast. Try JAMMS next door for really good breakfast. Overpriced as well. Service is weak and I'm sure food is microwaved.

“Great on comfort food!”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

I ordered the meatloaf and mashed with gravy (MMMMM) and it was really good. Not very busy and our waiter was very attentive. Would recommend if you want good food at a good price in the area.

“Divey 50s looking restaurant”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

The atmosphere is pretty cheesy, but in sort of a good way. We had a late breakfast. The food was good and plentiful. The coffee wasn't great. But overall, a really good value.

“Turkey and tomato egg white omelet is delicious”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

This is a great place for traditional breakfast food and the service is great. I love a place where all of the servers share in refilling coffee and clearing plates.
