A great place to 8. We called beforehand to make sure that our poodles would be welcomed on their deck. By the time we got to the restaurant, a table on the deck, was set up, waiting and ready for us. We both had burgers...More

Stopped for lunch between Pendleton and Burns. Glad we did. I had a burger and the wife a Reuben. Both were delicious. Gigantic mugs or small pitchers of iced tea. Great service.

Service here is always pleasant and efficient. The food is very good and portions are plentiful. We normally have breakfast here but have also enjoyed lunch here. Parking is easy as well.

Aside from the pretty girl with the pink top, not a good experience with the food. It's pretty hard to make a bad breakfast, but somehow it was managed. You might make the kid setting up the salad bar put on some clean clothes. Don't...More

Food like mama used to make. Stopped after church, before cranking up the motorhome to head home. The food was great with fast, friendly service. The place was packed for good reason. This is possibly the friendliest place we stopped at on this trip.

It was very busy when I went for breakfast. Luckily I had lots of time to kill as the service was quite slow. Initially I got someone else's order but that was resolved quickly. My breakfast was fine but unremarkable.
