“forget Denny's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

we got off to go to Denny's which we love but saw the Dutch Pantry and stopped there. We were glad we did because we enjoyed the quaintness(is that a word? Lol) fresh salad and soup. It had great ice tea and don't leave without having the Apple Fritters, but beware they along with all the portions are huge.
Easy on and easy off with a gas station along side make it a fast stop for everything you need, including a pretty smile from all the servers and people there.

“big portions but not great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We stopped on our way home and there isn't much for dining other than fast food places.
This place looked safe so we went inside.
The food is cheap and the place is cheerful, but that's about it.
I'd give this place a much better review had the place been cleaner. Even the service was not that professional.
The owner needs to bring in a dumpster and move this diner from the 1960's into the 2010's décor. Maybe dust a little bit around where people sit. Vacuum would be nice too.

As for the food, it's basically large fast fried portions, with no real seasoning. Side plum/sweet and sour sauce for the chicken tenders was awful and oily. Don't know what they're thinking.

Salad was basic bag lettuce quality.

Country fried chicken passed the best but had little flavour.

Didn't bother with desert.
Can't imagine going back.

“Split Decision”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

I liked my country fried chicken but my wife's country fried steak was absolutely awful. Many people were there so I guess it's hit or miss.

“Excellent meal and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

This is my second trip to this restaurant when I have been in this area. Once again the service was excellent, and the food was also excellent. This is a very nice place. It appeared as if there were lots of local people here. Everyone was very friendly. Our waiter was excellent. Service was fast. Food preparation was also fast. We met some persons who have returned to this restaurant and made recommendations to us. There is something to be said for an establishment that receives so many repeat customers. It is great! Enjoy.
