I love this place. I have had business in the area and so I have been here a few times. If not, probably would give a 4 this time. Service wasn't as attentive as in the past. But, it's a great place. Good menu. I...More

Anytime I can eat fresh, it's a huge plus for me! That's what we had here: really nice fresh food! My salad wasn't special but it was good. My son had a plate that he also enjoyed!

Took the family out for mother's day brunch. I'd like to tell you they were busy, but we were seated immediately. So... No excuses for the service or HOUR AND A HALF delay. Tables came and went, but they couldn't seem to find our order....More

First come, first serve. Patrons with their dogs can eat outside. Very good breakfast w/twists. Health drinks, a delectable Danish. Ample eggs and hash browns, waffles, and good coffee.

I used to like this place but hesitated to go unless I had time for a long meal because the service was a little too relaxed. OK, it was like the waitstaff was a little sleepy. But now that has changed. The service is much...More

We had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table. The waiting area was small, but fine. Once we were seated, the seats were lumpy. The music is too loud and it is nearly impossible to hear your companions or waiter. We ordered a farmers omelette...More
