Monday is their burger special for $6.99, with the purchase of any drink - wine, pop or coffee, etc. I choose it and included was a generous helping of French fries done to MY liking. My wife had a regularly priced ($11.99) Monte Crisco sandwich, it too had a generous serving of French fires. Their Pino Grigio is $0.20 a... More

Not the nicest, cleanest, newest restaurant around, but they definitely have some interesting "diner food" on the menu. It's not fine dining, but certainly worth a try if you're craving this particular style of food.

Came in for lunch today (December 22, 2016) and the place was packed - I thought service would lack because of this but not at all. Our server was amazing and made sure everything came out quickly and that we were happy. Koodos to that server because in a rush like that it's incredibly hard!

We went here for dinner and were greeted by a server named Disney. Friendly waitress. The restaurant has a 50's theme with lots of pictures of celebrities like Elvis, Marilyn Monroe. And a large car on the wall. I had the shepherd's pie and it was a different take on the old style Shepard's pie. It came in a bread... More

The atmosphere is a throw back to the '50s. The wait staff are prompt and courteous and helpful. The menu is delightful and no lack of choice. Haven't seen anything like it in all my travels. Thanks, Melanie Pringle, for your delightful, endearing and enduring restaurant.

We try and eat here about every other month and find their prices are reasonable and good foo with every visit. An added bonus was our August visit fell on my birthday and my gift was a $15.00 off certificate (which I have already used. The size and quantity of their shrimp in their Jambalaya are generous.

Went for a late lunch with my daughter. They have a huge menu. My only complaint is there was not a lot to choose from for gluten free options. But I managed to find something. My daughter loved her pasta and the service was great as well. Awesome that they are still around and succeeding after all this time.

On the day I got the results back from food sensitivity testing I made plans with my Dad for dinner. I sat down and told him about all the things I was sensitive to, some of which I already knew: all dairy, eggs, wheat, corn, nuts, sunflower seeds etc. He asked me if I could find something suitable on the...
