My husband and I met a few freinds here. They had eaten but we just had a couple of beers. The server was very friendly and courteous.

With extended family in town we were looking for a great place to go. The waitress was amazing, super cheerful and excellent service. Large table to accommodate our entire party. Food was lukewarm however.

This is one of the best breakfasts I have had in a long time. It is a casual atmosphere, definitely family-friendly. The bacon was crisp, the pancakes and eggs were fluffy. Great eats!

A good family type restaurant. Clean, friendly, with surprisingly good food. The decor is plain, just like you remember, with booths and a counter and with helpful waitstaff.

We enjoyed our lunch there after church on Sunday. The place is clean, and the food is prepared well.

A good old-fashioned family restaurant with a full menu of breakfast dishes, sandwiches etc. Try the "Joe's Special," a dish of ground beef, eggs & spinach topped with sautéed mushrooms. Delicious!

But the last few years the place has really gone downhill and the prices went up. So we quit going there couldn't stand the food anymore.... More

Selected because of their sandwich menu. Parking lot is small but adequate. Initial impressions: clean, diner decor, mid-range prices anticipated. Recent high school graduate as server. Would like to have suggested that she remove the small ring from her nostril, but maybe that's California. However, her recommendations regarding sandwiches and the milkshakes were good. Prices were reasonable. This is a... More
