We had good service, but it didn't start well when I was served a "salad" which consisted of brown edged lettuce and 3 miniature carrots. Even the server admitted that the "salads" were pretty bad. Beef 'gravy' was more like bottled turkey gravy. Pie crust...More

Very friendly atmosphere with delicious food. I had a ham and cheese omelette with hash browns and finished with their home made blueberry pie and real ice cream. Portion size is quite generous. Definitely deserves a repeat visit.
