A great place to stop for a quick delicious and filling lunch. I highly recommend the garbage plates. For 10 bucks you will leave happy and think of excuses to come back to Canandaigua

Good variety:burgers,chicken sandwiches,salads etc.,great service, very friendly young people,clean. Not my favorite "hot sauce".I haven't tried the hot turkey sandwich with gravy, looked yummy. Only negative was the foul mouthed customer in a family setting.I do wish I had asked the management to handle it as it tainted my experience.

This newly-renovated restaurant appears clean and bright - but dirty techniques and slow service will doom your visit. Woman in the back was making salads with bare hands and no hair restraint. Cook was wearing gloves, but was handling raw hamburger and cooked rolls with the same dirty glove. Not many customers but service very slow. Lots of staff, but... More

Great selection of local favorites. When in town stop by and try the fish fry or the garbage plate. You will not leave hungry

The fish fry here is really good. It's a really big portion of fish for a good price. The customer service is friendly and fast.
