Yes, we were, clearly, the only non-locals there, and we felt right at home. We went there for dinner. It wasn't that crowded the evening we were there, but there was a steady stream of customers coming and going. There was only one server for...More

This is a Locals' place. It is always busy but there is plenty of seating. It is worth a stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner if you aren't fussy, want a basic place filled with country/folk art stuff, are okay with eating at banquet tables...More

We highly enjoyed our breakfast this morning. With the mixed reviews I was a bit nervous. However, it was a great breakfast. Super generous portion sizes. My son loved his pancakes and bacon. The sausage biscuit gravy was as close to perfect as it gets....More

Think you will need to call for breakfast hours. They are open 7 days a week and serve breakfast each day in morning. They DO NOT serve breakfast all day.
