It's Good! We've been here " more than several times" and nothing has changed! Plain and simple...the foods good! Whether you're order just eggs and ham or "The Mess" you can't beat the quality or the service. Try it, you'll like it!

Ate here for Lunch twice this week with friends. The first day service was excellent, however the second day it was real slow even though the place was relatively empty. It seems like service goes down hill when the owner is not there. The prices...More

I checked TripAdvisor before going here for breakfast. I can see why it gets good reviews. Food was very tasty, very large portions and very fast service. The home fries are some of the best we've ever had. They actually cook them with salt and...More

Typical dinner/luncheonette style with large menu. Portions are good, children's menu reasonable, meals are served hot, servers are friendly/attentive, and prices that match what you get.

I remember when this was a "little shack" just down the road from the present site. Food and service remained the same. Visit every summer.....The Shack is an absolute must....serveral times while there....mostly for breakfast. DELICIOUS!!

Multiple location .... Family style ...... "Solid" food to eat. Pies for desert, you must try. Breakfast - you just got to try it, I enjoy the platter of hash and eggs, home fries, and good coffee - bottomless cup. Basic dinners, meatloaf, stew, hash,...More

I'm not sure but I don't think so. I've also been to Flanders Fish & thought they were awesome. Good luck on your search!
