Flew up Sunday for lunch and was not disappointed. My brother had the BLT and onion rings and I had the elephant ear chicken tenderloin. We both loved our meal and I took over half of my sandwhich home. I added coleslaw and it was very good. I would highly this restaurant as a flight breakfast/lunch/dinner at very fair prices.

Went to eat at airport after several years. The restaurant hadn't changed much and the food was as good as I recalled. Had the Elephant ear pork tenderloin and fried mushrooms. Both were really good. Actually had to much to eat and took some home.

Was told that Denny's was opening on Sunday. Nope. So I decided to eat at our weekend breakfast restaurant. Pancakes. Eggs. Bacon. Coffee. All very good. Cooked to order. As usual the waitress was friendly and knowledgable. Not just with me but everyone who came in. So yes I recommend breakfast on Saturday or Sunday. The special us the best.... More

I have been wanting to eat here for 20 years or more....It was worth the wait. I had the elephant ear breaded tenderloin sandwich and fries. My friends had the shrimp dinner and vegetarian omelet. We shared a small order of onion rings. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The portions are large so we all had leftovers to take with us.... More

After hearing good things about this place I expected more than a total flop. My pricey rib-eye steak should have been medium cooked, like I ordered, instead of burnt. Owners comment was " Oh yeah, we are trying out new cooks" My friends fried chicken was burnt. My husbands chopped steak was burnt and dry as a bone. Not once... More

Called to order a couple of pies in the morning to pick up late that afternoon and was rudely told that pies had to be ordered in advance. After ordering a peanut butter cream and chocolate cream pie went to pick them up later that afternoon and was charged $15 per pie. Since I needed the pies for a family... More

We used to eat here often but the service declined and the décor became pretty worn. Just didn't seem as appetizing. We like their elephant ear sandwich, the flounder, and the mushrooms the best. We go there for lunch once in awhile because it is close to the hospital where we've had to spend quite a lot of time lately.... More

Had that Monday off and a friend was passing thru and wanted to meet there. He likes to stop there when he trucks thru this area. First the waitress was a bit snarly. Service was slow. They weren't really that busy. My onions were burnt. My chopped steak was burnt on the bottom and dry. Even the fried potatoes were... More
