Great place to get breakfast. Service is good and the people are friendly. Don't let the exterior scare you away. Breakfast is tasty and it reminds me of a diner breakfast.

Yes. It was Jerry's Restaurant from 12-7-1966 until 5-11-1984 at which time it became Midland Restaurant. Mercy and Jerry St. Clair bought it September 6, 1984 and are still the owners.
