“So-so diner.”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

We were just passing through and stopped for lunch. We were seated promptly, and quickly greeted by our server, a teenage male. Who was friendly, but odd and kept needing us to remind him for things we'd already asked for. He seemed distracted and very slow.

I ordered the BBQ pork sandwich and sweet potato fries. The fries were of the Ore-Ida variety. The meat was good, but the bun was really soft and mushy. Husband ordered the blue cheese burger. It was cooked too well and was really dry. It was also rather spicy, which was not indicated on the menu. His regular fries were quite good, though.

Ambiance was nothing special. But it was clean. Seemed to be populated by locals, yet lacked the small town diner feel we like to seek out.

“Good service, great food!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We held our daughter's rehearsal dinner there for about 30 people. Our food was hot, correct and very good for a reasonable price. The pecan pie was especially delicious!

“great old standard”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The new owners improved a great old standard in town. I have yet to have anything substandard. I have been there for sit down and brunch. Both were excellent.

“Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had breakfast here and really enjoyed it. We decided to go with the strengths and order the Norwegian foods. I had some kind of potato wrap and it was really good. The place is clean and simple and I will definitely go back - there's also a great antique store a few doors down!!
