A good bet for breakfast at the counter. Good coffee and fast service. Had lunch there as well. Worth a try.

Had a late breakfast with family. It's a large typical looking diner on the inside. We sat at a booth, which was quite hard and uncomfortable but not bad enough to stop us from enjoying the meal.Food was great, the omelet was cooked well, the over-easy eggs were perfect, good coffee and very friendly service. They seem to be in... More

We had lunch there with friends and it was not very clean. The window sills needed dusting, very badly and service was a little slow as they were short staffed and so was the kitchen. But all in all not too bad.

The kind of restaurant that you grew up going to. Old guys at the counter and marina workers coming in for breakfast. Waitress okay,not very talkative. Food was good. Knew how to make perfect eggs. Decor could do with a update. Coffee very strong.

Ordered within 5 minutes of sitting down \o/.... An hour later after no less than 8 other tables were seated and served, some twice, we paid for our coffee and left... Seems that if they know you, u get placed at the front of the cooks line. Funny thing is we are locals, just not regulars I guess, and certainly... More

Stopped in here for breakfast on a early Monday morning when leaving for home in Ohio. A lot of locals eat here. Most everybody kinda knew other people and the waitresses. Friendly service and food cooked properly. Nice older CLEAN place. I would return again.

I guess my biggest problem is when I'm sitting down eating I tend to look at things maybe more than most people but an improperly displayed American flag and holes in the floor. Multiple tables that were not clean doesn't do much for me sorry and the hardest thing for me is that they have a great location and it... More

We come here a lot when we visit. This time we sat at a table where you could view the kitchen. I work as a food service manager in a school so I tend to watch. I saw the cook eating while she was cooking, wipe her nose on her hand and gloves were missing. Then I watched our waitress... More

Sorry we didn't find this great restaurant until our last day. Friendly atmosphere with good selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very clean and felt very welcome by the staff. We were served large portions for breakfast and everything was delicious. Good family restaurant with reasonable prices.
