The service was very good. The menu provides an extensive choice of waffles as well as other breakfast items. The portions on the Griddle items is huge. The Booths are a bit cramped and no tables were available at 7AM. (only booths and counter).

Six of us had breakfast before leaving town so it was pretty early. The waffles were fantastic and those who had eggs, bacon, hash browns, sausage, etc. said the food was fresh, perfectly cooked, and served hot. Would like them to serve better coffee, but everything else was good. It's clean, waiting time is minimal, servers are prompt, friendly and... More

This place is plain and simple a greasy spoon pancake house. Nothing special. Not bad, just not great. Mostly a place where regulars meet or people going to the lake looking for a quick bite. Kid friendly. People working are nice and service is spot on.

The service is excellent and the breakfast food is awesome. I love waffles and pancakes and bacon and eggs and they have quality food, good portions at a reasonable price and the waffles are out of this world. This is not a gourmet restaurant but a down home comfort food kind of place and always packed with families. Smiling faces... More

If you're looking for an average restaurant this is the one. Coffee a little better than some restaurants, staff really friendly and good service. Why a three star, not sure what happened but the bacon was really bad tasting for both my and my husband. We did comment on it, but the waitress didn't know anything. Just for that reason... More

Large breakfast sized menu. Had great tasting eggs benedict, sausage, potatoes, Family had eggs and waffles, potatoes, meat. House coffee is just average. Although they do upsell gourmet lattes, etc. We went after going to St Patrick Church on Sunday and there were quite a lot of people. Service was quick and kind.

Seated right away but had to wait for food for a bit. When we got the food it was hot and well worth the wait the wait. Would definitely worth the wait.
