I am including a disclaimer to my review because I am a somewhat biased reviewer. I am a member of the Murphy family. The family hasn't run the business for several years and the place has been completely renovated since the new owners took over. I've been going to this place for 60 years, since I was born. My last... More

Hats off to the chef and kitchen crew & wait staff. We recently hosted a luncheon for family & friends. We were able to choose from a wide variety of selections for a buffet lunch. The food was delicious from the appetizers to the desserts. The staff were professional, polite, and accommodating. Thank you all.

My wife and I went here on Columbus Day for lunch after searching for used boats for sale on Greenwood Lake. We sat in the back dining area which was separated from a very busy bar by enclosed glass doors. Even with the enclosure the noise level was still quite noticeable. This could have been forgiven if the food and... More

This is a true gem of a place. They make unbelievable ribs and hamburgers but that's just a small taste of everything they make very good. Their breakfasts are also very good. They make the best eggs Benedict.

A local recommended this place to us for breakfast. So glad. The menu is basic breakfast. They bring out little squares of crumb cake. Yummy. I got pancakes. They were the best pancakes ever. They had a sweetness to them. My husband got a sandwich and that was great too. Other people got omelettes and they were great. Everything was... More

Local place with great food. Pub style indoor seating, outside seating in the summer months. No views, but still nice sitting outside. Homemade food with generous portions and very good. Good size bar separate from the dining room. Prices reasonable. Service very good.

Mom and I decided to try the restaurant today at lunch time. The parking lot is very small. It has space for about 20 vehicles. There is only 1 handicapped spot in the rear of the building. We had to walk through the bar area to get to the restaurant. We had our choice of any table in the place.... More
