“THE place to eat with a light wallet!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

This a no frills place that probably still gets a bad rep as being a breakfast place only....well, that and being blue hair central (which actually is accurate!). If you can handle eating with the older generation then this place can be a hidden gem for foodies. I have been to this restaurant through all of it's incarnations over the years, and the food is now the best that it has ever been. The breakfasts are outstanding and both the steak and lobster additions to omellettes, etc are well woth it. The steaks and seafood are purchased from the same distributors that Escadrille next door uses. I usually get the surf and turf - steak tips and scallops - and it is a meal and a half! The tips themselves are actually tenderloin so that they melt in your mouth, with the choice of terriyaki or montreal seasoning. Perfect place when you want to get a lot for not a lot.....they even have $1 Bud/Light drafts!!

“Good value, good food”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

Went for Sunday brunch and went back the next week! We decided to try it because the parking lot is always full. Fortunately the wait is short, the waitresses are friendly and the coffee keeps coming. We will go back!

“Great Breakfasts!”
Reviewed August 1, 2009

We were in town over Memorial Day weekend for a soccer tournament. We went there for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning. We were seated immediately and the service was prompt and friendly. The breakfast menu had plenty of options and the prices were very reasonable. The food was hot, tasted great, and plentiful. We enjoyed our experience so much on Saturday that it was a no brainer to return on Sunday.
