Classic diner with the chef working the flat grill on the opposite side of the counter. The waitress and chef were great and had a great banter that makes you feel right at home while a couple hundred miles from home. Good honest food too.

Place looks like it opened 50 years ago and they've done nothing to it since. However the place is clean the service ok and the food reasonably priced and better than average. 4 seasons up the road is a better choice.

The omelette I had was easily a five. However, the restaurant was dirty & sticky. The chairs were stained and the outlets were grimy. Our party of nine got our food in five minute intervals. I would eat here again only if they did a...More
