It is a local place, and appeals to lots of locals, but I find it kind of grubby inside, in dire need of a makeover or a wall to wall major cleaning. Menu is very like a local diner (nothing at all like a Deli, which is what their old neon sign reads.) Heavy on starch and fried foods. Not... More

We have been going there for the last 11 years. They offer great breakfast and lunch. The staff is welcomimg and the food is comfort food. During the season expect a wait but it will be worth the wait

We love this place for breakfast. The usual fare & yummy scrapple. It can get crowded on the weekends, but worth a little wait.

Some in the family did not care for the food. I like the food and the place as well as service. Reasonably priced considering the area. Closed Sundays.

Breakfast was average as was the service. Very small inside and not very clean. Try the Bethany Diner instead.
