5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We did not eat a meal here, rather we picked up some cherry pies to take home. Fantastic pies! Worth every penny!!

“Must do meal if you are in Cherry Country.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant dates back decades and every year it continues to put out a quality product for a reasonable price. No trip to cherry country would be complete without a meal and pie at this location.

“Cherries everywhere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stopped here for breakfast. The building is cherry red. The servers wear red jumpers with red gingham blouses. The hostess had on a cherry print top. The male employees wear red polo shirts. In keeping with the theme, we ordered cherry pancakes. Coffee was promptly brought to our table in a carafe and accompanying was a small, complimentary cherry danish served warm. Delicious! The pancakes were a bit heavy, but tasty. 3 large pancakes is a full order. I would order a short stack the next time. I also ordered bacon done medium and it was prepared as requested. My husband ordered a sunny side egg, and it was done perfectly. We took home one of the much touted cherry pies and just finished a piece. Best cherry pie ever! Worth the trip just to get that! There are MANY non-cherry items on the menu, so don't be afraid to give it a try if you don't like cherries!

“A classic but "no great shakes"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

After reading the reviews we could't resist but wished we had. The food was medicore. I ordered fish and expected good fish - it was frozen and watery inside. Dinner roll was poor. Fries were hot and delicious and the cole slaw was fresh and very good. My husband is a vegetarian and was severely limited with the menu. His salad was average. I'd recommend that you try another restaurant in the area.

“Managing to stay classic in modern times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

A recent week long family trip up the coast showed that it is hard to stay classic and relevant. The cherry hut seemed to walk the line well. Looks like a classic 50's roadside attraction. But inside everything was immaculate. Food seemed to walk the same line. It was all good but nothing special - but then was diner food from the 50's really special in its day? Or do we just romanticise it and then hold surviving places like the Cherry Hut to gourmet standards? Clientele seemed to be many older local folks during our visit. Seemed to be testament to staying classic in modern times. If the food was nothing special - the cherry pie was AMAZING. I love cherry pie, eat it any chance I get, mom makes some of the best, I make some myself - and this was probably the best every. That said - cherry pie is like pizza where they are all usually good and the differences slight. Go and decide for yourself. Even if you disagree - you will enjoy the second place tasting enough to make the trip worth it. (Oh, and the young server Ariel (?) seemed to have stepped through a time warp from the 50's - so polite and deliberate that she almost didn't seem real in this frantic day and age)
