“Don't Drive By”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We've driven by many times and decided to stop today for lunch and were more than pleasantly surprised. Lots of choices and very reasonably priced. Service was good and staff was friendly. We both had the tuna croissant special and finished with the blueberry bread pudding with peach custard sauce. Both were delicious. We will definitely go there again.

“Simple Ole Diner”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

This place is just a simple ole diner, with a nice staff, good coffee, and good diner style food. I had the BBQ pork which was tasty, and my wife had the Shrimp Basket, which she said was some of the tastiest breaded shrimp she's had since we moved here 2 1/2 yrs ago. The french fries and onion rings were also very good. I had their dessert of the day, which was a Strawberry Bread Pudding with a White Chocolate sauce, and it was very good. Simple food at a down to earth price. No frills in this place, but for the cost, you definitely can't beat it.

Delicious food. Never had a bad meal here. Best pulled pork sandwich I ever had. Bread pudding is wonderful, too. Very reasonable prices.

“A Mom 'n Pop Sleeper”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

This little restaurant has been dishing out vittles for a very long time. It's not a place you would voluntarily wander into as it does not have the looks to compete with the spiffy chain restaurants.
When the majority of it's customers are locals in a very heavy tourist area where many restaurants thrive during the tourist season and then dry up and blow away during the Summer for lack of business, you have to believe this restaurant is doing something right to keep the locals happy. Here is home style cooking with a country "Chatterbox Café" type atmosphere

No sophisticated décor, seating, or dishes, but if you want good, simple, tasty food for a very reasonable price and don't mind the owner coming around to chat with you, this is a fine place to eat. Their daily specials are very reasonably priced and with a generous portion size, not the jumbo sized entrees you would get in many chain restaurants and have to share with another or bring half of it home in a doggy bag.

All in all, a cute little, mom 'n pop operation that knows how to keep their customers coming back with good food at very reasonable prices in a friendly setting and the waitresses will joke with you. No liquor bar or outside seating available.

“Cold beer?????”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We went there for a cold one and a burger. The burger was just average and the beer was not ice cold as advertised.
