“Comfort food and friendly staff”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Each item on the menu is made in-house by the kitchen staff. From the saucer-sized caramel rolls and cookies, french toast with choke cherry syrup on to the lunch and dinner items. The pies are made fresh daily and there are a good choice to choose from.

One of my favorite items is the humus platter. The humus has great flavor and has plenty of vegies to go with it.

As for the staff, they are friendly and helpful in making suggestions in case you have a hard time deciding what to choose off the menu.

“Very good choice!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Picked this place based on TA reviews. Were not disappointed. I had chicken-fried steak with mashed and green beans. Excellent and the steak wasn't tough or stringy like one encounters elsewhere. Wife had a salad with Cajun chicken on it. Chicken was juicy and perfectly cooked, all ingredients were very fresh and the guac was excellent.
Try to save room for their large dessert selection.
Overall, a great choice.

The food is good, with big portions. The interior is nice and our waiter was very nice and polite. I would really recommend coming here if you're visiting the area

“Denny's/Shari's/Colonial House”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Don't get me wrong - my meal was good and the service was good, but nothing was FABULOUS. This was within walking distance of my hotel and it was recommended. I had a bowl of spaghetti that was good, but (shrug) it was SPAGHETTI. The waitress who waited on me was attentive. I had plans for super early in the morning, so on the way out I grabbed one of their bars from the bakery case (lemon, brownies, 7 layer, etc). SIX DOLLARS!!! I don't know that I would have gotten one if I'd known the price beforehand (in fact, I KNOW I wouldn't have), BUT it was delicious and I am STILL eating on it!

This is some of the best food I've tasted if you're looking for down-home quality cooking! The staff is superb. They have some of the freshest food available and offer a wide variety of entrees.
You can't go wrong here!
