Ordered typical diner fare; burger with swiss cheese and bacon and a side of fries. Crinkle cut fries were good not great. Burger patty was very thin poor quality beef. Sad when the ketchup is the best tasting part of the burger. I will say the waiter was very friendly and efficient. There were only diners at about 5 tables.... More

I took a group of 10 here for brunch and the service for such a large table was wonderful. They were friendly while setting up the table, got our order to the table quickly, and everyone's food was nice and hot. The server came by several times to check on us and to refill drinks. The price is great for... More

Great place for breakfast. Excellent wait staff, delicious omlettes and waffles, fast service. We love going there several times a month! Had one bad experience several years ago and avoided it for awhile, but I am so happy my husband insisted we give it another try! We see others that we know there all the time which is really nice...

I had a very unusual experience with this restaurant. Food is good, so I called in an order. No problem so far. I get there to pick it up, and it is total chaos. Hostess seemed to be lost in space, offered to take me order. Told her I had already phoned it in. Finally she understood that It took... More

The staff is friendly and always attentive to the customer. The food is good and always served hot. The corn pancakes are the best.
