Went here for lunch. Love the little diner feel. Place was clean. Allie our server was friendly and energetic she was a busy bee 😊. I ordered the Reuben sandwich with broccoli salad. It was by far the best Reuben I've had. Will definitely be back!

Small cozy restaurant in a nicely converted and appointed old building in Marietta. Very friendly staff and excellent food largely consisting of sandwiches and breakfast items (served all day).

This is a local diner with good home cooked food. I enjoyed my stack of pancakes that were bigger than my plate! Nothing extraordinary, just a fun loving atmosphere and good prices.

My Mom and I stopped by for lunch yesterday and what a disappointment our meal was. We asked when ordering how big the Steak hoagie was and decided to share it. When it came out all we seen was the shining of grease everywhere. The bun must have been coated with butter and the bottom of the sandwich was greasy.... More

We have been going here for years. Loved the food and the staff became like family. New ownership took over and most of the old staff is gone. Food is still decent and prices ok but certain servers aren't so great.

We were in Marietta for a weekend vacation and my husband and I are huge fans of breakfast. The reviews raved about this place and especially the sausage gravy and biscuits. I was sadly disappointed. The gravy had no flavor at all. It was completely tasteless, the biscuits were doughy and not flakey or biscuity. My husband got a skillet... More

I had heard such good things from the locals about this place. What a disappointment. I hear it is due to new ownership. I had the sausage gravy, biscuits and eggs. My friend had a much larger breakfast. The sausage didn't even taste like sausage. It was truly one of the nastiest tasting things I have ever tasted. I spit... More

Located in Harmar Villiage , just across the bridge from down town Marietta Oh. Easily accessible and plenty of parking. Good home cooked meals and a good variety. Dining area kind of small,and at times it can be hard to find a seat. Dining area and bathrooms are clean. At times it takes a while to get waited on. Not... More
