We stopped here for a late lunch on Friday before heading up to Skyline Drive and staying there for the weekend. The parking lot was empty, so we were surprised to find other diners already there. Perhaps they were guests of the Brookside Cabins. I...More

Just a hop, skip and jump from the caverns. We had breakfast here and it is quaint and the staff very friendly. The buffet was well worth the 11 dollars and the food was fresh and tasty. PS: if you like scrapple, they have it

I am somewhat astounded by this review as the facts presented by the reviewer are in ERROR. I refer specifically to the charge that 'mgmt/owner' was 'yelling at the staff'. While I agree, as the owner, that such behavior WOULD BE unprofessional and Rude...it DID...More

Cozy and quaint is how I'd describe this cute little place. Food was good, service was excellent! Highly recommended! Omelette and French toast, coffee. Very good. Reasonable price.

Thanks so much for your feedback and I can only say I HOPE there was merely a disconnect on interpreting our server's response. Our staff is generally known for being friendly and welcoming so I apologize if this was not the impression you got. We...More

Located a few miles outside of town. Friendly wait staff, good quality food with quite reasonable prices. There was a small buffet option, but we ordered from the menu. My wife enjoyed the small gift shop next to the restaurant.

Had dinner here on our first night's stay at the cabins next door. The service was extremely pleasant and efficient. Comprehensive menu and plentiful buffet. We opted for the well priced buffet, but will probably order from the menu our next visit. Everything fair priced,...More

The food was great. Chicken fried steak you could cut with a fork. French fries were good..a little salty for me. Lemon Pie was out of this world. Pie crust was the best ever and no doubt it was lemon. We also had entertainment from...More
