If you like a home cooked meal this is definitely a place to try. We were lucky to have Angela as our server and she took pride in what she did and what she served. Home made meat loaf, burgers, fresh not frozen, and the omelets are perfect,

Excellent food and service. A well run, family restaurant that won't cost you a lot of money. They have a few specialties that are not always on the menu so be sure to ask about them.

First time there was not overly impressed. Some food was good some not so. Menu specials had changed from what I saw on Internet. Service was so so. Really no wow factor to me. Heard breakfast was good but don't think I will be back to try.

Pros: The biscuits and gravy were really good. The other breakfast items were OK. Cons: The establishment is really in need of an update. It felt dirty. The service was slow. Not due to our waitress. 2 or 3 tables waiting on food. It seemed like the kitchen was slow.

First table I went to sit at was cleaned but still dirty. No one told me of the specials being offered. I had already ordered when I heard them being offered at tables around me. I would have ordered one of the specials. I had a patty melt. The burger was nasty. The rest of it was good. Onion rings... More

Went there on memorial day and they were slammed. Still got good service and my food came out fast, hot and nice looking. Definitely recommend to anyone that wants a good home cooked food. My favorite is the country gravy and eggs.

I have not been at dad's for the last 2 years until I heard they were under new management . I got to say my wife and I were impressed. I got some chicken fajitas and she got some new breakfast bowl dish. The portions were huge for one and the place has been completely redone. I talked to the... More
