Went for the first time today. Great service, excellent atmosphere and very decent prices for the HUGE portions. You will NOT leave hungry! Probably the best omelet I've ever had. They're breakfast potatoes are awesome and not drowned in grease like the chains.
Steve was patient with our elderly aunt who wanted things just-so and another family member (I won't mention names, but I'm married to him) who wanted to change his order after placing it.
Only complaint is that the coffee wasn't strong enough, but a diet coke fixed that.
So delicious, can't wait to go back!

Food was really good and a great value. We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and portions are substantial. Better yet the food is good and the staff has always been very nice.

Very nice setting. Extremely clean and bright eating area. Menu is very complete with items like liver that are not available at most restaurants.
Well run operation with coordination that gets your food out quickly.
I had the roasted turkey. It was moist with a nice apple stuffing.
Great place for comfort food.
