Ok, it has a few good points and bad points, but here goes! Service: Very, very good. The server I had was great. I'm not sure if she was the owner, but she sure acted like it. Very friendly, very very good at her job. Made me feel very welcome, and was enthusiastic with her job. Couldn't get better! Building:... More

Waitress was wonderful, polite and friendly. Food was standard diner fare. Nice portion and price. If in the area, will definitely revisit.

Stopped for lunch. Big mistake. Had eaten here a year ago for dinner. Ordered a cheese omelette. It was terrible. Overcooked and dry. It is a diner that has not been maintained. Not real clean. Service was SLOW. Won't return.

We were looking for an alternative to fast food or hotel buffet breakfast. The place seems to have a large regular crowd based on overheard conversations. I had eggs, country ham, biscuits and grits. Everything except the eggs was tasty. My wife had the pancakes and bacon. The bacon had good flavor and was cooked properly. The pancakes were dry.

Plain old american food at a fair price. Most definitely a "joint", and one to which we will return.

This diner is small and does not sit a lot of people. We arrived for breakfast at around 10:00 AM and there were a few people waiting for a table. We choose to sit a the counter. The food was good and the price was too. We would definitely eat here again.
