Met someone on a Sunday morning which was very busy with families and friends meeting for the holidays. Crowded but we were seated quickly. Waitress was very attentive and after sitting at diner for 2 hours she got a slow down to speak with me letting me know how busy the diner was that morning, more than usual. Menu was... More

Eating here is just as typical as you can get for a side of the road eatery. They have ok food, the deserts are really what you want.

Not a great experience both times. Good variety but quality is variable. Soups are good and salads too. I couldn't eat the spaghetti and meatballs were not good at all. I couldn't eat it. Very marginal quality of entrees. Never had desserts so don't know about that item. I'd choose to pass on this place !

My husband and I always look for a family diner when we travel; somewhere where the people know everyone. Well we go to Michaels every year and the staff remember us and it is almost scary that they remember what we like to drink- for me grapefruit juice and end the meal with camomile tea. That is s wonderful feeling... More

Very large eatery and neat as a pin. A whole menu is for seniors and everything is a bargain. Breakfast this morning was 1 egg, 1 bacon, 1 link sausage, 1 pancake and a carafe of coffee for less than four bucks. That is hard to beat. Great service. If this was in my home town, or even close, I... More

The food was prepared with almost no seasonings, warm...just not up to par as other restaurants in the neighborhood. Tried it twice and still felt the same....not one I would visit again.

Good food, huge variety for all meals. Always open, I've been here for all meals and late night snacks. You can get breakfast any time. They have a big salad bar and a huge menu.

I have not gone back in years and we thought we would try it again. Mediocre at best for breakfast. Everything was orange, sausage, eggs, potatoes. Will not return.
