Down for a weekend and No place to eat!!! This restaurant was recommended to us by a local who has eaten here for over 25 years. The blueberry pancakes were to die for. My husband had a Fresh asparagus omelet. Can't remember any breakfast this good! WE went back for dinner and had a broiled seafood combo!! Fantastic! My husband had Chicken parmesan, Loved it!! So glad we found this place!! Our waitress was wonderful, excellent service, AND with a smile!!! We'll be back!! Many times!!

I am new to area, restaurant was recommended to me. walked in ordered coffee, the cream was bad curdled in cup brought us new coffee and new creamers, they were also bad too. no apology just threw a cup of milk on table "here use this."The coffee was the worst I ever tasted. My big mistake was not walking out then. I ordered a cheese steak sandwich that was not very good ate half because i was hungry. That evening I was sick as a dog, I think the refrigeration might have been bad which accounts for all the spoiled creamers. Wish I could find a list for the worst places to go in Point Pleasant this place would be on top.

The Food was ALRIGHT to say the most. While trying to enjoy my order i Had to sit and listen to the owner brag about himself and put his opinion on everything. I So boldly wanted to stand up and make fun of his establishment but i did not bother as i am better than that. The food tasted like every small business .. food bought from obvious places in bulk such as a cosco or bj's wholesale. cheap tasting and regular, i would rather have cooked myself a grilled cheese and ate on my couch than listen to this man sit and talk like trash. My Waitress was absolutely delightful and while i did not really enjoy my time there i made sure i tipped her well for being such a delightful woman. There was however another waitress (whom i later found out was related to owner) standing around playing on her phone being an absolute waste of space as i had to watch a table ask her for there check because she was too busy! The Only Luck i had in that place was that i did not have her waiting on me! ..ALSO the bathrooms we're well put it this way i walked in and right out without doing my business. No sooner was my check presented to me had i left the establishment with the obvious thought to Never go back....
