“Just an average cafe”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This restaurant has been opened in an old Elk's lodge dining room. The entry way is extremely dark with no lighting in the hallways and restroom definitely needs a good cleaning. Once you find where to enter, it's a big open space with tables and chairs and again very poor lighting! The service usn't too bad. The food is average. Does have a salad bar, but the pasta salad seemed sour. The chicken fried steak was good. Hamburgers are good. Just not the best atmosphere, but not a bad place for a home cooked meal.

“super slow”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The food is decent, but both the service and especially the wait time are very slow. If you only have a limited amount of time for lunch don't go here.

“Not Homemade, Just Okay”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Locals praised the eater as the best homemade food in town. Our visit they had out of the jar salad dressings that were awful. Potato salad not sure where it came from but it was not fresh tasting. The chicken fried steak was a pre breaded frozen hockey puck that had no beef flavor. The mashed potatoes where bland, soupy and where not made from in house potatoes. The pork tenderloin was a frozen flavorless crunchy fried grease. The vegetables were not fresh but out of a can. The chicken fried gravy was from a mix and not homemade. The food didn't taste bad but just no flavor or freshness that popped in your mouth. Prices were pretty cheap. The fact that they don't make their own dressings pretty much make me think nothing is going to be "Homemade" here. Good candidate for "Restaurant Impossible"

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I like the fact that food was not too greasy or oily. The vegetarian omelet looked and tasted good the same as the hash browns. pancakes and syrup was also all good

“Big, Huge or There-is-no-way-you'll-finish-it.”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Very good food at exceptionally reasonable prices. Just don't let your eyes be bigger than your appetite. The portions are HUGE.
