If you are looking for the fanciest or healthiest food available, you are in the wrong spot. But if you are looking for delicious, comfort food of good size portions you are absolutely in the right spot. After a bad day, that was exactly what...More

Really good selections on the menu. Prices were a little higher than expected, but it is a border town. I did enjoy the food. The servers were friendly which made for a good dining experience.

This restaurant was once a Denny's but has recently been updated and is family owned. Good food, good value, nice staff. A little bit of a wait sometimes due to it's popularity in town. Within a stones throw of the Canadian Border.
