Excellent and attentive service was receive, and of course, the good was very good. Huge servings, and nicely different twists on some old favorites. Even the kids meals are big. The pineapple upside-down pancakes were especially favored.

I usually order the Volcano or Mini Volcano breakfast with pancakes, eggs and bacon. Great pancakes and bacon. Husband ordered Turkey Club with fries. Also good. Generous portions, friendly waitstaff, and reasonable prices. Very crowded on weekends, but worth the wait.
