The menu is filled with mostly comfort food. Excellent variety of breakfasts. Biscuits & gravy is a staple here. Large serving. Excellent sandwiches. Try the Philly steak. Dinner highlights are liver & onions, shrimp and meatloaf. The prices and staff a very friendly. Give Dad's a try.

The food was average greasy spoon fare. Prices were reasonable. We would eat here again if they kept the place clean. Tables were dirty, floor needed sweeping and unfortunately the kitchen door was open when we passed by. Ugh.

If you like a home cooked meal this is definitely a place to try. We were lucky to have Angela as our server and she took pride in what she did and what she served. Home made meat loaf, burgers, fresh not frozen, and the omelets are perfect,

Excellent food and service. A well run, family restaurant that won't cost you a lot of money. They have a few specialties that are not always on the menu so be sure to ask about them.

First time there was not overly impressed. Some food was good some not so. Menu specials had changed from what I saw on Internet. Service was so so. Really no wow factor to me. Heard breakfast was good but don't think I will be back to try.

Pros: The biscuits and gravy were really good. The other breakfast items were OK. Cons: The establishment is really in need of an update. It felt dirty. The service was slow. Not due to our waitress. 2 or 3 tables waiting on food. It seemed like the kitchen was slow.

First table I went to sit at was cleaned but still dirty. No one told me of the specials being offered. I had already ordered when I heard them being offered at tables around me. I would have ordered one of the specials. I had a patty melt. The burger was nasty. The rest of it was good. Onion rings... More

Went there on memorial day and they were slammed. Still got good service and my food came out fast, hot and nice looking. Definitely recommend to anyone that wants a good home cooked food. My favorite is the country gravy and eggs.

Thank ilovegary
