If you come here, you better not elect formal high end dining. It is a cozy home cooked place with huge portions. I came for breakfast and was shocked at what you got. They do not take credit cards.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner ~ this place is always packed. And with good reason! The service is very fast, the servers (Donna especially) are friendly and knowledgeable, and the meals are delicious. The Swai fish (like grouper) salad was great, broasted chicken is a specialty,...More

Small country diner with amazing broasted chicken. We also had the veggie beef soup which was NOT out of a can. Everything is homemade. They make homemade cream of mushroom soup every other Tuesday. Definitely want to try it.

I've been twice and both times food was very good, as well as the server. Portions are large. Prices are good, too.

Hi Mark. It's amazing that you had crab legs at my restaurant when we don't even serve them. Very classy to insult other people that you don't know. I will be contacting TripAdvisor to remove your review and remove you from their site. Did you...More

I believe it is Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Then on Monday, Wednesday and Friday it is all you can eat fish. Not sure what is on Saturday. But it is best to call them to make sure. Trust me you won't be disappointed... More
