When I'm in the area, we always try to have a good country breakfast here. Food is good. Service was a little slow as they were short-staffed this day. Very friendly staff and waitress was very helpful with menu items and questions.

when you order soup and salad u go to the bar yourself, u should not except a waitress to TELL u to go, that is pretty much a given

This is a cute restaurant. Decorated in Scottish themes. Wait was about 20 minutes for a table of 7. Food was reasonably priced. Staff was friendly. We waited outside because there is not much room to wait inside. No where to sit outside. It’s a...More
