I have been here twice, both times I have been pleased with the service and definitely the food! Home cooking for sure and enough to take home for meal 2. Really enjoyed being there, have recommended to others.

Step back into the 1950's at this diner. Good ol' American food, large portions and reasonable prices. My friend had deep fried oysters for breakfast. They were huge and he had at least 6 or more with his eggs and hash browns. He said that...More
