Food and service is good but if you want to carry on a conversation, plan to shout. It really is too bad that people have fewer manners this day and age. Great breakfast!

I love the little miner breakfast! It says little, but it includes 2 eggs, toast, bacon or sausage & hadhbrowns! I'd call that a complete meal, all for about $5-6. Their skillets are great too & my husband loves the deluxe nachos!

This was a great place to have a good breakfast. The food was done well and the prices were not high. It was very busy, so be sure to go early.

The service is good and the while it is mostly bar food, the dinner specials are definitely worth trying. While it may not look like much on the outside, this place has the best breakfast deal in town.

Stopped for breakfast on Sunday morning with my wife. Huge pancakes, coffee included, plenty of food.....total for 2 (including tip) was $10.00. Don't get me wrong, it's still a bar, but it surprised us as a pretty decent and economical place for breakfast.

some friends took me here for breakfast, i was a little skeptical when i seen the place, service isn't super fast, just a laid back pace, food was worth the wait though, pankcakes the size of a large dinner plate, very good, hash browns and omlettes where really good as well. i'd definetly go back..

Thank ErikB23
