“Go for breakfast.”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Breakfast is pretty good. You should realize that the servers are local ladies and have nt been trained in white linen and silver service. So keep that in mind when you overhear them chat and interact with each other.

I went once for lunch, did not find the menu that expansive. Not really typical diner food like Hamburgers, Patty Melts, or Meatloaf. At least the day I went.

“Good food for the price not fancy”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Lunch is the only meal I have eaten there. They are open all year and it is fairly busy the times I have stopped, which is proof of the pudding that the locals like the place. Lunch specials and salads, soup , sandwiches.

“Dirty and the Staff is rude”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

We went to this establishment twice. We figured the first time was a fluke. The place was filthy. The other guests were rude, and the kitchen staff would yell obsenities at the wait staff.
The food was subpar at best. I would pass on this greasy spoon.
