Went here once, thought I would give it a try. Me and my guests were the only people there and received terrible service, not too mention I found a hair in the biscuits & gravy...Eww! Try Kate's Kafe instead.

We stopped for the 5.99 special. OK but slow service. Has changed hands several times and just never has been anything other than average.

Missing some old items that I liked. Owner very nice and trying to make it. Some of the breakfast specials were special now not so special without them. Back to very average place to go.

Decided to try GiGi's today for lunch as we hadn't been at this location since it was a different name. It is located as part of the Days Inn and in front of the Tiki Bar. The menu was basically American and mostly sandwiches. The food was pretty basic though my son said his patty melt burger was really good.... More

Doesn't exist anymore. Has changed hands twice in the last 4 years. Nest name had substantially increased the price for some of the meals although nothing has changed in the food quality/quantity/service

This restaurant is excellent. The food is fresh, the place is clean, and Maria & Jen are great servers. We met the chef Tom and he was very personable and passionate about what he does. The soup was delicious, chicken salad one of the best I've had. The Cuban does need a little work, the burgers are very very good.... More

If you don't feel like making breakfast and you don't feel like getting one of those huge plates of bacon, ham, eggs, home fries, grits, pancakes etc. etc. etc that is the usual breakfast entree at most restaurants what do you do? I go to Marlida's. It is a simple little restaurant attached to a motel. While they do have... More

Been wanting to go there, finally went for breakfast. The service was bad, 9 tables 3 severs and they still couldn't figure it out. My husband couldn't even get a refill on his coffee, waited 45 minutes, finally got a coffee refill. The food came out, it was gross. We couldn't eat it and my food had a big black... More
