This is a relatively small neighborhood restaurant frequented by the cognoscenti in our town. The food is fresh and well prepared, and the service is excellent. The prices are reasonable. It is a welcome diversion from big chain dining.

Didn't know what to expect when we stopped in for breakfast. Surprised by the numerous choices and very reasonable prices. Best part was the home cooked food--- delicious omelette served hot and a generous portion. Decor was home town sweet. Go for a casual breakfast....More

Large portions, great prices and delicious food - what more can you ask for? Even the bread they serve before dinner is delicious. Turkey dinner was a classic with a mound of white meat turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, the works! The seafood...More

Very simple decor on a street that's not really near anything. Basic food done pretty well. Breakfast is better than lunch or dinner. Reasonable prices.

not a ton but it has street parking too. I am not sure if the parking lot behind them is theirs, but it is easier to just park on the street. Typically right in front of the restaurant.
