We have been going here for years. Loved the food and the staff became like family. New ownership took over and most of the old staff is gone. Food is still decent and prices ok but certain servers aren't so great.

We were in Marietta for a weekend vacation and my husband and I are huge fans of breakfast. The reviews raved about this place and especially the sausage gravy and biscuits. I was sadly disappointed. The gravy had no flavor at all. It was completely tasteless, the biscuits were doughy and not flakey or biscuity. My husband got a skillet... More

I had heard such good things from the locals about this place. What a disappointment. I hear it is due to new ownership. I had the sausage gravy, biscuits and eggs. My friend had a much larger breakfast. The sausage didn't even taste like sausage. It was truly one of the nastiest tasting things I have ever tasted. I spit... More

Located in Harmar Villiage , just across the bridge from down town Marietta Oh. Easily accessible and plenty of parking. Good home cooked meals and a good variety. Dining area kind of small,and at times it can be hard to find a seat. Dining area and bathrooms are clean. At times it takes a while to get waited on. Not... More

Stopped here and had a very good breakfast with my family ... They give pretty big portions ... The food and service was great ... I love the old buildings in this area ... Don't judge a book by its cover , cause the food they serve is outstanding ... Enjoy ...

We went for lunch. Being from out-of-town, the GPS lady got us there. Like people say, hard to spot, but a good stop. The rooms could use a makeover. Kind of plain, and the counter area has such potential. A bit cluttered now. But to the food. Service was good and very friendly, but getting the food seemed to take... More

Went to the Busy Bee to check out their Ham and Egg Hotcake. I was not disappointed. Service could have been better, but she was courteous and my food came quickly. Prices very reasonable. The place is small, quaint and nothing fancy, but that is part of the charm. Located at the bottom of the old RR trestle across the... More

Stayed in town a few days and found myself at the Busy Bee a few time for breakfast. The food is excellent and the service is great, the wait staff is friendly and attentive. A very good place to eat.
