We went here for dinner and were greeted by a server named Disney. Friendly waitress. The restaurant has a 50's theme with lots of pictures of celebrities like Elvis, Marilyn Monroe. And a large car on the wall. I had the shepherd's pie and it was a different take on the old style Shepard's pie. It came in a bread... More

The atmosphere is a throw back to the '50s. The wait staff are prompt and courteous and helpful. The menu is delightful and no lack of choice. Haven't seen anything like it in all my travels. Thanks, Melanie Pringle, for your delightful, endearing and enduring restaurant.

We try and eat here about every other month and find their prices are reasonable and good foo with every visit. An added bonus was our August visit fell on my birthday and my gift was a $15.00 off certificate (which I have already used. The size and quantity of their shrimp in their Jambalaya are generous.

Went for a late lunch with my daughter. They have a huge menu. My only complaint is there was not a lot to choose from for gluten free options. But I managed to find something. My daughter loved her pasta and the service was great as well. Awesome that they are still around and succeeding after all this time.

On the day I got the results back from food sensitivity testing I made plans with my Dad for dinner. I sat down and told him about all the things I was sensitive to, some of which I already knew: all dairy, eggs, wheat, corn, nuts, sunflower seeds etc. He asked me if I could find something suitable on the...

Mel has been running this spot for along time and running it well. Decor is dated, but that is the point !! Their menu has lots to pick from with two of our favorites being the hot turkey sandwich (reminds you of Christmas) and the turkey, dill bacon club. Their ice cream sundaes can make a Sunday dinner just all... More

Great 50s diner atmosphere and menu items. Both of us had the club sandwhich to go with the 50s feeling we had. Yummy. Real chicken breast. Was very good. Price was a bit high at 12.00 but well worth it. Drinks are free refills and service is A++. Great couples or family resturant.

Thank Cheryl R
