“The new 2 for $25 Menu Selections are Great”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Was pleasantly surprised by the new menu choices since we had not been there in some time. Can get to entrees (we had steak and prime rib), with choice of soup or salad, 2 sides, and either an appetizer or a dessert. We picked the chocolate pie and it was huge...we said next time one of us will get an appetizer and one will get a dessert and we will share. They have many barbequed items on a new menu also. Service is excellent. happy to see them doing well :)

“A Good Place for a Quick Meal”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Typical American fare, with average sandwiches, entrees, salads and specials. Many items are likely frozen and re-heated, and lose some flavor in the process. Prices are reasonable, and service is efficient. The decor hasn't changed in the 10+ years since the restaurant opened, but it's serviceable.

“Consistent and Reasonable”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

To me, this is everything a diner should be, except it does not have the traditional counter and stools. It is clean, and the waitresses really know their stuff. The food is consistently good and it is reasonable. We’ve been there five times in the past two months and have yet to order from the regular menu because their full-meal specials are a steal. There are different specials in effect at the same time, so I would suggest you invest a little time in comparing them if it is your first visit. Some include a tossed salad and a cup of homemade soup, some include a glass of house wine, some include an appetizer, some include dessert. Some offer a full-sized entree while others have a smaller portion. Some include a dessert such as rice pudding or jello, and others include a slice of pie (which might not be homemade.) They also do barbecue, although we haven’t tried it yet. Be aware that there is no entrance to their parking lot off the main highway (Route 30A.) You turn onto a side road at the traffic signal just north of it.
