Average food. Easter Sunday special was $12.95. Consisted of ham, two sides and cake for dessert. Ordered unsweetened tea, got sweetened! Waitress said the sweet potato casserole was to "die for". It was so covered with brown sugar and nuts that I could barely eat it. The building is quaint, 100 yrs. old. It was busy because of the holiday.... More

Food is filling and the prices are a little high but overall worth it. The staff are great and have real nice hospitable personalities.

10 visits now. Simple, unpretentious diner in a beautiful place. Famous for their pies, but not all the pies are always available.

Drove through and had lunch--- grilled trout sandwich with onion rings and a grilled trout platter with mashed potatoes and slaw. The trout was fresh---- it is farmed and it tastes like farmed. Everything else was off the distributor's truck. The chocolate peanut butter pie is home made and I only got one bite (that's how awesome it was!)

Stopped here for breakfast early Saturday morning in this little town with one traffic light. Good service, quaint atmosphere. Breakfast hot, eggs cooked perfect, coffee kept flowing. Full menu available for lunch and dinner too, kinda place that existed before the chains crowded out simple food.

'60's music and decor. Down home food at a fair price. Home-made pies and local trout on menu. We loved it!

New owners have spruced up the place and serve real food - and the best food in an otherwise dismal dining town. Many D.C. residents spend a weekend here and can't find info - won't know the place finally has edible food. Please check out their mountain trout - homemade desserts and breads, fresher food than this town has seen in years!
