The portions here are hearty, and the food is your basic diner grub. I don't really like it, but others in my family love it. So, it comes down to personal taste.More

The service (by Heather) was spectacular along with the food, highly recommend! Try the BBQ frys or the homemade onion rings, to die for. The banana coconut cream pie was the finishing touch.

Thank you so much for your review. We can not fix what we don't know about. Unfortunately we had a less than stellar performance. I guess I'll have to take the blame. We recently changed the salads and I see that I haven't informed the...More
