Have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. They serve a great breakfast and just had a fish fry there and I had the smelt, which was a AUCE, but one serving was all I could eat.

The owner was right there when we were greeted on a Sunday afternoon. I am assuming it was his wife who was our waitress. We all had a burger of some sort (bacon burger, or cheeseburger) except for my husband who did their buffet. It was all good, most of the buffet food was homemade and either the mashed potatoes...

The place is so laid back. The staff are so friendly and make you feel like you are a guest at a family home. Yes, the decor is dated but it appears to be clean. It certainly isn't fancy but the food is good, although plain. They have specials posted but we were not informed of them, guess you just... More

Great service at this family-run restaurant. We stopped while driving through. The food was good and fresh and basic fare. The place was charming as the people in it.
