They have a great cheap breakfast. Dinner probably my reason for 4 stars instead of 5. The local bar scene is where this place really shines. Bartenders are great. If you are the type of person that prefers a dive bar to a fancy spot...More

Canadian bacon Benedict was cold and the English muffin was not toasted. The breakfast lasagna was not an impressive dish. The grits tasted old and were cold. The waitress forgot our coffee refill. My husband and I would not recommend this place for breakfast.More
