good service but very dirty. Food wasn't bad, the chicken fried steak is big but mostly batter and they need to spice up the gravy it shouldn;t be just milk and flour. If I go again I'll show the cook the right way to make it, lay off the batter

Small town mom and pops, food from scratch, large portions, great prices, great food, great menu. Soup was good, burger was tasty, grilled chicken was juicy. They have ribs and we're trying them on our next visit which won't be so enough.

My family of 6 ate here twice and were very pleased both nights. I had the clam chowder and grilled cheese sandwich and I couldn't finish my sandwich.

I love finding little Non-Chain Restaurants, and this is a little gem! Came here with family today and here are all their comments: tasty, fresh, corned beef hash is a good consistency, awesome service-very quick, good food, come hungry and go home full, outstanding German Sausage omelete, breakfast like Grandma used to make! I can't add anything more, except enjoy!

A great little diner! I had a breakfast of bacon and eggs, which was excellent. Thick bacon and thick and delicious wheat toast! I had a steak dinner one night, which was also very good - the mushroom and onion topping was perfect. Comes with sauteed veggies and a baked potato!

I love it o go here for a good hearty breakfast. It is country. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Weekends can cause a backup but it usually does not take too long to get a table. This is where the locals eat.

We had a pulled port sandwich and fish and chips. Both were very good. The server was pleasant and efficient. When we were there they were not accepting debit or charge cards so we had to fork over old school cash. Facility is sort of run down but clean.

Friendly staff. Kid said it was the best pancake he had ever had. Loved the bacon, too. My omelette was good. Biscuits and gravy were okay. Huge pieces of sausage and bacon. Eggs cooked just right.
