Great location but bricks are falling off the building and when the window was replaced, it's still raw tar paper and unfinished inside! Then, although "Steve" is known to work from there, he is NOT the chef. Infact, I doubt there is any chef. Food is very routine and boring.

Always a friendly small town feel. Walk in, find your table and enjoy your meal. As far back as i can remember, the restaurant hasn't changed. Thats the best part!

My husband and I went in for breakfast, we seated ourselves, as we noticed 2 other tables doing, and waited for a waitress. We sat there for 20 minutes and no one came to us! We even had 2 different waitresses walk past our table. We will highly recommend people to NOT go to your restaurant!

A true home town restaurant, not fancy, just good food at reasonable prices. Breakfast is excellent, well prepared and ample portions. Also occasional buffets if that's your interest.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat before we did the wine tour on Seneca Lake. We stopped here and had a late breakfast/lunch. What a nice quaint little small town restaurant with fabulous food....and all desserts were homemade!!! The lemon meringue pie and chocolate cake were supreme!!!!
