We arrived at the start of the lunch rush and we were surprised how full the place was. By the time we left people were lined up waiting for tables. I liked the fact that people were seated in the order they arrived not matter what size of table. It can be frustrating when patrons arrive and they are parked while a larger or smaller group gets seating right away because they happen to fit an available table.

Service is outstanding. Extremely fast and very attentive.

My choice was a large Taco Salad which was about average in taste and appearance, however, the salsa had far too much cumin for me. I was "tasting" the meal all afternoon and it was quite unpleasant.

The food was OK, but the walleye was not as we'd heard about them. Good service, good sides, but when you have your heart set on yummy walleye and it doesn't deliver, it rated average.

We were looking for some good food and this place nailed it. We ordered the ribs which were perfectly done and also the rib-eye steak which was also perfectly done. There was so much food we could barely finish it and thankfully we ordered dessert to go, the peanut butter brownie was nice and the carrot cake was out of this world...if you like carrot cake this is a must! Service was great and server was very polite and quick with the beverages. Pretty hard to beat this place for home cooked meals and prices were reasonable too, actually NOTHING beats this place for food period! Couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

We thought we would give this diner a try with our family. It was what you would expect from a diner. Good service and decent food. Nothing to really write home about but nothing bad either.
