We stopped by as we were staying nearby. Great decision, from arrival to leaving the service was fantastic. We were made to feel special and welcome throughout. The menu was classic diner and our food tasted great. Would definitely return

Our portions were huge and the menu offerings covered both Breakfast and Lunch-Dinner items that could be ordered anytime. We really liked the nostalgic decor in the area of the restaurant in which we were seated.
