“Amazing Breakfast”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Husband and I ate here for breakfast on a Tuesday morning. We were the first ones in free try opened so things were very quiet and service was quick and friendly.

Breakfast menu was a wide selection of the usual breakfast dishes. The food came out super quickly and it was great. Usually breakfast food is so overly greasy. This was not. We enjoyed every bite.

I'd definitely recommend this place for breakfast. Food is just right and service is quick and friendly.

“Long wait, good food, ample service, above avg. prices”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Remember, if you owned a restaurant in the thick of tourist country you wouldn't sell food for the same price as Mickey D's....so I wasn't expecting bargain prices. It is a tad high, but when your on vacation and the closest restaurant is another 5-6 miles, well this is where we went. Once seated (they were very busy) our server was friendly (she was busy) and got to our order very quickly. The food was out in 20-25 minutes and was very good. $40 for the 3 of us.....

Good pie list, good variety on the menu

“ASK FOR JILL!!!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stopped in Saturday night for some pie. Jill was waitress great personality was real quick to get what you needed. I will have to say her tip was larger than our bill. So of course we stop back Sunday night for dinner umm wow big difference in the service we waited 10 minutes before our mousie little gal came asked for our drink order as dinner went on the slower she got. BUT she sure would stand in the kitchen area and talk . Sat another 10 minutes waiting for pie . By this time I'm not in the mood. So like I said ask for Jill.

“The BEST pies EVER (but don't tell anyone)”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We laugh every time we go by Betty's Pies--the parking lot is full, but the best pies are up the road at Rustic. The 5 layer Chocolate is to die (and go to heaven) for! The berry and peach we got this past weekend were fantastic! Keep it a secret so we will always be able to find them! DRK
