First of all, great service. The menu is very diverse. My husband had the turkey dinner. There was an abundance of meat, but, it was all dark. No white meat whatsoever. That being said, since we don't like dark meat, that was frustrating for him. I asked for butter for my food. No butter, just margarine and I can't eat... More

We stopped by for lunch but decided on breakfast. It was on a Monday just before noon. By the time we finished the place was crowded. You could tell a lot of locals and Seniors dined there.

Locals recommended this place to us, but, unfortunately, our experience wasn't great. We waited a very long time to be served, and our food was just mediocre when it did arrive. There were not enough waiters for the number of patrons.

We went Pete's for a meal and ordered our meal. After receiving the meal ,the waitress left us and proceed to fix other jobs and did not ask if we wanted additional drinks. Until we got ready to leave,then we were asked for any additional food or drinks. Note this happened on two different occasions.

First time here. In for breakfast on Sunday at 9. Very busy but servers are right on point. Good menu and prices. 2 eggs scrambled with patty sausage and a large biscuit smothered with " house made " sausage gravy. Gravy needed more sausage and whole plate should have been much hotter. This seems to be a problem with restaurants... More

Really enjoyed the breakfast itself with good portions and the prices are very reasonable. The service was good, the servers could smile a bit more and be a little more friendly. A smile goes a long way.☺️ the only reason I didn't give four stars was that I saw the server dropping the bread for toast with no gloves. The... More
