This is home cooked comfort food made from scratch and a wait staff that has been there for decades. It is busy at breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a reason. Not fancy, just yummy food. No alcohol here.

Servers are very friendly. Popular spot that serves large portions of home cooking. Just like Mom used to make! Guarantee that you won't leave hungry. They even bake some of their own bread on premises.

Went here with a hunting friend last Friday and I must say... one of the worst fish frys I've ever had. The fish was so greasy I had to wipe it off before I could attempt to eat it. I've eaten here many times but...More
