“Breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I used to love this restaurant for breakfast. Since the new owners took over several years ago, the quality of the food has gone way down. The portions are smaller and are over cooked. The skillets used to be great and now there is less meat and cheeses. It would be nice if they would try to seat families together and couples or just adults on one side of the restaurant.

“Poor Food Quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

After 2 visits it will be a while before I visit again. I had breakfast both times and had to send my food back. Why?
Because the eggs were cold and extremely uncooked. I like a cooked to almost any way well done to runny. They looked like raw eggs from Rocky movies.
Service and cost were average.

“S.G.M...just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

The pros: Being a standard greek menu you can get almost anything from breakfast to lunch, italian to greek, anytime. T
The cons: Their omellettes are extremely overcooked and dry. If you ask for less dry, they arrive at table even more dried out. Ask for you hash browns crispy, and they arrive less cooked than normal.

“new management, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Not that this restaurant wasn't good before, but with the newer menu, I come here much more often now. It's a bit more competitive with some of the "breakfast and lunch only" restaurants nearby, and the dinners are great. Plan on leaving with a take-out container, though, because the portions are huge. Plus, I think they have the best homemade soups in the area!

Kids menu accommodates all three of my little ones, the rudolph waffle is their favorite.

“Incredibly accomodating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

I walked in with my daughter-in-law's family of about 15--no reservation amd more coming. They managed to seat us pretty much together. The food was very fast, very tasty, generously portioned, and very reasonable!!!!! My daughter-in-law and I had wonderful salads. Yum!!!
