“Fresh & Local, Original Upscale Menu”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

When ever we're on 95 by Laural, Maryland we stop by this place. It's only 2 miles off the freeway and it's a nice break from the typical chains. They use local meat and produce and have a nice, upscale menu for a diner.

“Gone downhill...”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

My family and I used to go here all the time years ago. It used to be a great clean diner with great food. On our last visit, we noticed how long ago that really was because this is definitely not the same place.

On our most recent visit, the food was just average, nothing special. French toast was kind of hard, onion ring dip was rancid, home fries weren't fresh, etc. Waiter was a little slow and not knowledgeable regarding food but cordial. The all time worse was the smell in the restaurant. It was a rainy day but I still don't think a sour smell almost pissy (leather maybe from seats) should be present. The bathrooms (mens and womens) were the worse. Very dirty and smelled very bad.

The only thing that was the same were the high prices for average food. This should be reduced with the quality of food and atmosphere. I won't be returning.

“Good full service inexpensive restaurant.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Service was fast and food was good. Wait staff was excellent and friendly. One of the few places that still serves an old fashioned bananna split. I would go back again just for this desert.
