Stopped here for a mid-morning breakfast. Rosie and Elizabeth welcomed us warmly with true UPer hospitality and we felt at home right away. Breakfast was delicious and fortifying. Can't say enough about the Sausage Gravy! Amazing on eggs!

We stopped her for breakfast as we were traveling through town and it was so good. My girls each experienced their enormous pancakes and I enjoyed a garbage omelette. And not only was the food great, but the service was top notch. And the coffee was good too :) We highly recommend and we will be back!

Very mediocre food, very typical diner but the only fresh ingredients were the eggs and chopped onions. Would not go back.

What an adventure. As an ex-Navy sailor, Rosy made me feel like I was back in the Navy. Her language is colorful and salty. Not a place for children, but if you like good food and lots of it, with a little irreverence on the side, this is the place.

Based on reviews we stopped at Rosie's and glad we did. Pancakes were amazing, 10" round and 3/4" thick! Two of us had 2 eggs and toast (eggs were also great), one had 2 pancakes and 1 cup of coffee for a grand total of $12.43. Now where can 3 eat breakfast for that price? Better yet was the service....

If you're looking for some good comfort food this is the place to go. Loved the Beef Stew along with "a side of Rosy's sarcasm"! We will be back again when we are passing through.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Rosy cooks right in view of customers. She banters with the regulars and her workers love to trade shots at her. Feels like being in Mom's kitchen. You need to check it out.

This was a fun place to be. After I ordered, my husband said, "I'll have the same." Rosy said, " Oh, you don't know how to read?" That gave us such a giggle. She made us feel right at home :) Great home cooking too!

Rosie is a nice place to eat, great food at a modest price. Once you get to know her she has a quick whit and will give you a bad time about almost anything.
