We were under impressed with the food and the service. The salad was limp, the burger was over cooked. The service was less than stellar. We will not be going back.

Only there for breakfast not what I expected. Rather go to Village Inn or Denny s.Like to give it another try for lunch or dinner though however.

This is an adorable restaurant with large portions, good food, and friendly staff. The pancakes are excellent.

Our bill was $31, tip included. On our VISA statement, we were charged $36. Since we also had a terrible motel room that night, we'll not plan to stop in Malad in the future.

The environment could use some updating. Everything feels greasy inside including the air. Could be a little cleaner and salad bar lacks luster especially for the price. Foods were empty and dried out. Hair in eggs. Not ideal for a family on budget.

The waitresses were friendly. I had the taco salad and my partner had the chicken fried steak. Both were very good. Large servings. The scones and honey were excellent.

We didn't know what to expect, we just saw it on the side of the road and decided to stop in. The food was great! The burger was nothing short if amazing. We could tell it was hand made, never frozen with freshly baked bacon....More

This was a great find on our way to Yellowstone. Had been owned and opperated by the same family for 13 years. I was suprised that it is not yet on tripadvisor as it is a true gem.
