There were 6 in our party, we showed up around 4 p.m. to beat the Dinner ground. It took forever to get our meals even though we were the only ones there. Once they came, we wished they hadn't. All our meals were "detestable". I had sirloin tips, they were "awful". I ordered them medium-medium well. They were well done... More

So often as we travel it can be hard to find a place that matches our on the go hours, however it is great to find a place you can get great tasting food late at night. The diner and lounge stay open past when many streets are rolled up. There appears to be a steady crowd of locals who... More

Punkin Valley is an odd little restaurant with an unnecessarily long hallway when you enter. I can see why other reviewers would consider the atmosphere outdated, but it seems they are in the process of renovating the place or something, so give them a break. I enjoy the odd atmosphere, which is potentially even odder on karaoke night (I want... More

SO dark inside, so CIRCA 1974, but wait, am I talking cleaning, or decor? One and the same! I can actually remember my parents going out to eat here w/ friends many years ago, and it was, apparently, quite the swinging scene, but, sadly, I do not think it has had much in the way of renovation since that time....

I read a few of the reviews about this place before I booked the last room they had, the operators call it a "Basic" room, and understood that my wife may not think this was going to be her favorite room ever. While the negative reviews would be justifiable, and palatable to me if these basic rooms were, $179, $149,... More

My family and I dined here last night to celebrate my birthday. They were very accommodating of our large party, even though we did not make a reservation. All 10 of us were very pleased with our meals and drinks. The food was high quality and prepared properly. I will definitely be back!

I am sorry your food was not satisfactory on your recent visit. I do not recall being notified that one of our patrons was unhappy with their food or the service they received. We have had numerous staff changes recently in an attempt to find qualified, experienced, and friendly wait staff. The interior of our restaurant is in the process... More

Punkin is always a reliable and surprisingly delicious place for one or thirty! I pass through Brideton every month and I find that Punkin is open for posted hours (some close early - not good after 20 minute drive) and the food is delicious, hot and good value! Nice cozy bar too! Always, always friendly and accommodating!

Thank you for your review. I take pride in being open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The only time we have closed early has been because of weather or a family emergency. I am happy you enjoyed yourself and found everything to be satisfactory. Thank you, More

This has to be the dirtiest resturant I've ever seen. The food is awful, there were fruit flies all around the fruit on the bar. If you stay in the motel you better have all your shots.

Since your visit in September, the interior of our restaurant has been remodeled, including the walls and carpet this past spring. As several months passed before your review was submitted, I cannot identify a specific problem with your meal, as it was not brought to my servers or my attention. I apologize that is was not satisfactory. We have a... More
