Restaurant is pretty clean and well-maintained despite the amount of customer traffic that they have. Atmosphere is warm and friendly as well, and the hostess was extremely nice and accommodating to our group of 10 people. Service was decent but a little hit-or-miss; very polite and friendly but a little unreliable (would contribute most of it to place being busy... More

Went here for breakfast on a Saturday. Waitress took my order with little enthusiasm, then didn't say anything else or check in at all for rest of time, except to drop off check. I asked person who actually brought me my food to bring a couple things to go with the meal, like ketchup and napkins, but they didn't bring... More

I love this place. Not because it is a gourmet restaurant. The food here is lovingly prepared and very tasty. The menu has something for everyone, from skillets galore to weight watcher delights. The service has always been outstanding. I can only attribute that to the lovely couple who own and operate it. Typically my family and I wind up... More

You can tell by the older crowd that comes here that you are going to get a good deal on good food and hefty portion sizes. I've had breakfast and lunch foods here and they are all amazing! The soups that come with the lunch entrees are great in winter!

The Pumpkin Pancakes are the best! The fireplace is on and you always get a greeting at the door. The servers are very friendly and they fill your water glass and coffee cup often. The food is really good and I have ordered different items on the menu and not been disappointed. Good size parking lot!

Better than IHOP. Better than Dennys. That's about it. Better than them. I will go back. Not perfectly clean. At all. But better than the chains.

Food choices and presentation are unique & fabulous and everything I ordered tasted great too. Staff was very nice and always ready to help, checking periodically to see if everything is OK. Nice cozy atmosphere to talk also while enjoying a breakfast / brunch meal. You don't feel rushed here either. If you do have to wait it's worth it.
