stopped here for dinner with daughters and grandchildren, the food was good and portions were large, you could easily share a dessert, service was a bit slow

Loved it! Big fan of the baked potatoes and beans! Loved the cornbread! And a good salad! I don't eat much meat... So can't say much about that. But my boyfriend loved the bbq pork ribs! Recommended to everyone!

really nice décor, well done, service was very good, I liked that the person seating you asks what you would like to drink and brings it quickly. food was very good and presented well. I liked the parmesan chips a lot. burger was excellent. friend had BLT which she said was also good.

Was here for dinner on a weekday night and the place was practically deserted. My salad came in minutes and the steak minutes after the salad. It was like the kitchen staff was bored and pounced on an order like a Tasmanian devil. Overall the food was average and the server was excellent.

If your hungry go here... The amount of food and quality is very good. The fresh squeezed orange juice is something else. Good assortment of items on the menu which looks like a newspaper. Friendly staff and good food.

We took our 3 kids there for dinner and they loved the fact that kids eat free when they bring a stuff animal. The food is delicious and I always look forward to eating there.

Great food! Wonderful service! And even brought water for my Service Dog. I was there with my neice and cousin. Irvi g was our waiter. Charming young man attentive but not hovering. Kept water glasses filled without asking. Wonderful place!

Stopped by on the run and ended up eating a breakfast late morning. It was excellent with plenty of choices and plenty to eat. The food was good, juice was fresh and was seated promptly. Very cozy place to eat.
