We went on a busy Friday evening and we're seated immediately. Our server Angela was great offering the special $1.50 domestic bottled beer list and menu specials, our beer arrived with a chilled glass. My partner ordered meatloaf, baked potato, clam chowder and cucumber tomatoes salad, he was very pleased with all items except the mushroom gravy which he pushed... More

Went for the corn beef and cabbage. It was very disappointing. Very dry and unappealing. The potatoes had big ugly eyes still in them. I should of had the Rueben. It looked much better. Very disappointed.

Seems as though there was only one very slow lady with a chip on her shoulder waiting on the whole place. She didn't acknowledge us the first two times she passed us. She had a sour face on when asked for mustard (the person that delivered just tossed it in front of me never asking if there was anything else... More

We used to go here frequently but tried a few times since the change in ownership. Must not have the same cook since many of the menu items were not prepared the same. Why would anyone grill meatloaf? We will not return.

Hello im astonished by the 1 star review. As we don't grill our meatloaf we steam it. As before it was microwaved. That being said we hope you return. Thanks, Management More

This our go to place for burgers. They cook them the way you want them. The meat is fresh from the local butcher and delicious. Homemade chips are light and crisp. Servers are friendly. No matter what we've ordered- it's always been good.

Haven't been for a long time since 3 out of 4 visits were poor. Went tonight, not very crowded for season. Ordered grilled shrimp with lemon butter and mashed potatoes and gravy, soup was cabbage. Soup was lukewarm at best. No flavor. Everyone else got their dinner, and my shrimp were written up incorrectly. So most everyone was almost finished... More

When my best friend invited me to lunch here, I was delighted since I had not been in several months. I was not even aware that it had changed hands!!! Our server Karen took good care of us, and the owner came out personally to greet us, and I thought that was a nice touch. Since my friend was in... More

Our local men's weekly breakfast group went here this week. The place is down home quaint, local and nicely done. The service and food is very much up to par and better than a lot of places out there. Clean, neat, good eats at fair prices. Pleas give it a try and enjoy!
