Terribly confused! Bad pizza. Over cooked pasta. Service is bad. Loud Hawaiian lady had very bad manners. Inappropriate language

It's a local's easy hangout for good food at a fair price. We have enjoyed Checker's for several years and this year was not an exception. Eating at the bar/counter is very comfortable and the service is always good.

Great care is taken to make your whole experience great. The waitpersons are attentive and the food is wonderful. Quiet and refined atmosphere and of course the coffee is perfect.

I had a delicious gluten free pesto pasta here! They don't have a kids menu but catered for them anyway with a plan tomato pasta, great salad selection and steamed veggies too. Excellent.

They have companies in town that deliver food. I don't believe they themselves deliver but the town has third party companies that deliver.
