We enjoyed having brunch here. We had a large party so we called ahead to make reservations. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. Our server was awesome. She was fast and friendly. Would recommend this place to eat.

We typically eat here on Sunday morning before we go back home. It is our last stop as we head out of town. The food and service are excellent and the prices are reasonable. Try the salmon hash or the meat omelette of the day.

I'm a frequent flyer at both locations. I usually meet my children for breakfast/lunch/brunch. The daily specials are always creative and delicious. The salads are large and varied. I love the salmon sandwich. To good

Our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception was here, and it was fabulous. Buffet style food was so plentiful and delicious, open bar enjoyed by many, and the service really, really, outstanding. We had SO many different foods to choose from-jambalaya, prime rib, salmon skewers, guacamole, roast vegetables, mashed potatoes, hummus, salads, chicken, pork... We have eaten there a couple of...

The salmon was AMAZING!!! My 3 year old and 4 year old ended up eating almost half of it themselves after they tasted mine! Will definitely come back for this dish!

Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner I was exciting to find this little gem close to a place I am working at in the area. I sampled the mango iced tea, it was not too strong or sweet, perfectly flavored. I tried the grilled shrimp appetizer, it was spicy but I ate all 5-6 shrimp over a bed of dressed greens.... More

Had breakfast and the bacon, potato's, and eggs were excellent. The breakfast taco's also looked excellent and got great reviews from daughter and wife. The service was also very friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. The atmosphere was also nice.

I only have been to this location once before for lunch. Today I was with a group of retirees from work where it was a slow Monday. Everybody seemed to enjoy their food and service was fine although it took a little time to get a second cup of coffee. Nevertheless, my veggie omelet with home fries and biscuit was... More

So we are visiting family and they suggested this place. It was fabulous before I had a Bloody Mary and they make their own mix and it was great. The entree I chose was the smoked pork loin with mashed butternut squash and garlic green beans. The losing was very good and juicy with a hint of smoke flavoring served... More
