We love going out to breakfast, but dont "get" why everyone in the ville packs this place. It must be the buffet because it is not the atmosphere or service. Once when our power was out, this was the only place available. My son had his heart set on chocolate chip pancakes so I asked if they could add a... More

Delicious home cooked meals serving breakfast and lunch daily except Monday. Best Chopped Sirloin (Hamburger Steak) with onions/gravy anywhere. Everything is reasonably priced with healthy portions. Week-ends are awesome best buffet around including salt herrings. Must try, will not be disappointed!

Been here a dozen or more times. Never disappointed. Whether it's the buffet or order from the menu, breakfasts are always very good. Service is exceptionally friendly and fast. Try to get there each time I'm in Mechanicsville.

A step back in time to down home cooking in a rustic and comfortable atmosphere. All your old favorites from eggs, hash browns and BISCUITS for breakfast, to yummy sandwiches and soup for lunch. Generous portions and real home cooking. You will love it.

The breakfast buffet is outstanding! Everything you could want for $10.99, all morning and into the afternoon (Friday-Sunday)! I almost didn't write this review because I plan to go back regularly and I don't want it to get overcrowded!!

A group of 14 nurses met for lunch yesterday. We had one waitress, who was very efficient and quick, friendly. She was very attentive & handled our group with ease. I had Barbecue platter, which included 2 sides. I picked pickled beets and Fried Apples. They also gave me some Texas toast. All of this was wonderful, as was the... More

We've been here twice for breakfast and it was good, but this review is for our first lunch visit. The one thing we noticed at all three visits:. If you ordered something with bacon, you got a HUGE serving. The bacon cheeseburger had lots of bacon and was very good. The fries were fresh and hot. The turkey club was... More

Restaurant has a good vibe with a busy brunch crowd. they have an impressive buffet. We ordered off the menu and I had an omelet, which wasn't anything special. But, there were so many people there, that they must be good, so I'll have to try this place again

Love visiting Mechanicsville for antique and quaint shopping and decided to try this restaurant for the fist time this past Saturday. My husband got a hamburger and I got a BLT on rye bread. Both were served with fries. There really wasn't anything spectacular about the food. The fries were frozen crinkle fries. Most diners were getting the weekend breakfast... More
