I found the restaurant on reataurant.com and decided to treat my family. The place needs some updating, was nervous about eating there when we pulled in. First warning was the waitress said they didn't have any customers the prior day, should've walked out then. I...More

The service is excellent, and the food is very good. I wish they would spend some money on updating the exterior and interior. It all looks a little shabby. But the prices are pretty good for most of the dishes. I had the Eggs Benedict...More

Were a bit skeptical after reading some of the reviews and stayed away from a few dishes as a result. The first thing we noticed is that the decor and atmosphere in the main dining room was late 70's. This made us even more apprehensive...More

Very pleasant place to eat. We came at about 11:30 and wanted lunch, but they were still serving breakfast. They were very accommodating though and served us lunch. The lobster roll is one of the best I have ever had.

We went to a family reunion, and the next morning looked for a place to have breakfast, and saw a sign that proclaimed "Laura's famous breakfast". We figured we'd see if indeed it was worthy of that claim, and to our delight, it was! The...More
