Once a month eat breakfast here after early church. Food is top rate regularly, service is prompt and friendly. Will eat here many more times.

We decided to stop and have a bite since the reviews indicated the food was really good and we weren’t disappointed. Aside from some slow service (there appeared to be one waitress during Sunday brunch time) the experience was great. Definitely will be coming back!

Great pancakes and their fried chicken taste better than Mom’s!! It’s a real down home family restaurant with good food, and friendly service. It also has take-out. Their soups are homemade. When I feel a cold coming on I have my husband pick-up their Chicken-Noodle...More

My son and I went twice in a 7-day span. We like that they serve their full menu all day. Love the array of veggies offered, and the fact that the chicken tenders are made there is outstanding. Not frozen. Loved the grilled cheese, corn...More

Had breakfast here and was not overly impressed with food. Had their scrambler and it was a bit dry for my taste. To each their own

This is a fun place to eat dinner. It looks like an old diner from the 50's or 60's. Each night, there is a long list of vegetable choices to go with your dinner selection. If you are vegetarian, you can get a 4 item...More

Went to the Rockin' Comet for a friend's birthday breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised! Food was great, prepared quickly and served by a great waitress. Coffee was hot and service was quick. Recommend it for a good breakfast at a reasonable price.

My family likes to stop here after church. Sometimes there is a short wait, but many times we walk in and are seated immediately. Breakfast items are all very good! I have been twice for dinner... enjoyed my burger and banana split!!
