Seated at 8:25, ordered pancakes and French toast. At 8:45, we watched two tables who had been seated after us eat their meals. Asked waitress to check on our order. She never came back. 8:55, asked a second waitress to check on our order. Never saw her, so we went to the front and said we could no longer wait.... More

We stopped here for breakfast and had a great meal. My wife had a veggie omelette which was very good. I had a great buffet: eggs, pancakes, French toast, two kinds of sausage, tater tots, fruit, pastries, corned beef hash, chicken fried steak and biscuits and gravy, the list goes on and on. Add some great home town service and... More

We stopped on our way back to Wisconsin on a Monday afternoon. They were offering third pound cheeseburgers and fries as their daily special. The burgers were super tasty with toasted buns and crinkle cut fries. The unsweetened iced tea was fresh and not weak like some restaurants. Service was awesome! The server even asked if we wanted some water... More

Great old school restaurant. Huge menu, including breakfast all day! Yay! walk ice-cream window on the outside. :-) Very inexpensive. Just comfy, homey and clearly filled with regulars. You should try it if you are up there.

Was here on Sunday and we all got the breakfast buffet. It was terrible! Toast was hard, scrambled eggs were rubbery, sausage was undercooked, sausage gravy had no taste, pancakes had to be cut with a knife, and there were flies on the pastries. The only thing on the buffet that was edible were the chicken tenders, but who wants... More
