Our family enjoys coming here when we are HUNGRY. The portions are BIG. Grama like to take half of her meal home with her. Sometimes at lunch we share a salad. Family owned. Good home style cooking.

Buttercup is one of my go to places for a good breakfast. My breakfast of choice is waffles, usually topped with strawberries. So tasty, I am drooling just thinking of them. the wait staff is friendly and efficient - there when you need them.

A cordial, friendly atmosphere on Friday night. Good food, good service and reasonable prices. Will definitely go there again.

If you're tempted by the sound of "homemade biscuit" next to the word "benedict", just remember this review and fight the urge to think it's good. I had it at Buttercup Grill and it was sort of a waste of an order. It's $11.99, and...More

Buttercup is my go to place for comfort food. It is a locals restaurant. I love to go to locals restaurants when traveling. It is a great bang for your dollar.

I have eaten here on several occasions, and while I have never had a bad meal, I can honestly say that I have never had a great meal. Breakfast is good, just not exceptional. Had dinner here once with my parents, and will never return...More
