“Fun and tasty! Loved breakfast”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Very fun atmosphere, fun plates and campfire mugs. Sit at long tables and served family style. Very busy, loud and hectic but worked great for our family. Waitresses working very hard. Food. Donuts were amazing! I am not a big donut guy and I thought they were great. My wife had three! Biscuits and gravy were good, sausage was very tasty, potatoes and pancakes very good also. Eggs and ham were ok. Overall we had plenty to eat, it was very good and everyone enjoyed it. Will go back again.

We ate here before the show and it was good in a family setting with decor to match the evening. Loved the dinnerware too. The food was very good.
