Not much ambiance but the help is friendly and the coffee is good. Biscuits were fluffy and the gravy had down home flavor. The breakfast burrito would have fed both of us! Pies looked delicious but it was too early in the day.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn and they made the recommendation. Glad we went The food was very tasty and the waitress Melissa on top of the service. The orders are very large you may consider splitting, if you can agree on a dinner 😳

We've eaten here several times now and the last 3 times weren't good. This last visit was on a very busy Sunday morning, my wife ordered the waffles and about a third of the way through then she found a hair on her food ... that ended her meal. My Country Benedict plate was cold but the gravy was hot.... More

Skillets simply has the best fries we've ever had. We scheduled our trip so we could stop here for lunch again. I had a reuben and my husband had a chipotle chicken wrap. My reuben was perfect: lean, tender corned beef, just the right amount of tangy kraut, and a a slice of melty cheese. Thousand Island dressing came on... More

If your in town looking for a good breakfast this is about the only one in town. The food is good, atmosphere is very casual and usually little to no wait. This is straight up diner food. Burgers are decent and dinner is okay. Food is pretty bland but for the money is good. Breakfast is the best
