Excellent food, especially anything BBQ'd or the fries. Service WILL be slow if you go between 4-6 but I guess the crowd is a testament to the food!

This was my third and last time trying this restaurant. The first couple of times was immediately after they opened and it was not a good experience from servers to food. We decided to give it another try. Although, the cashier asked about our experience and we told them how bad it was, they made no effort to fix the... More

This place has all kinds of great comfort foods to choose from and to take it one step better, they deliver which is great when you are staying at a hotel like I was.

My wife and I were regulars since the reopening but have since stopped going there. It seems like the food has slipped recently and the waitresses and cooks don't act as if they are treated very well.

The food was excellent - if you're looking for a place with some home-cooking, this is it. All of staff were very polite and professional. Prices were very reasonable. Next time I'm in town, I will definitely be stopping by!

The pic is the pork chops....$8.99! Excellent and they now have a liquor license. Pedal on C&O Canal Trail, stay at Best Value, eat here! Wash it down with cold beer! There are other places in town but this is so handy on US 522.

We stopped in for lunch on our way to Pittsburgh. There was a "Forest Mushroom Bisque" that intrigued both of us. We ordered portions for all, and a plate of chicken legs to follow. There were a lot more than button mushrooms in the bisque, and plenty of them! It wasn't puree to death like many bisque recipes are, there... More

Way too many fries with a great burger. We sat outside on the porch. The price was cheap and the good was good.

The only thing I could complain about was the amount of time it took to get our orders. The food was good. They have real mashed potatoes! Servings are man sized! Make their own cakes and pies for dessert. If you aren't too full to enjoy the dessert. You can always take it home with you.
