I ordered the meatloaf. I like onions but not to that extent. The only tase that came through was onion.My husband had whitefish and was disappointed with the mushy texture. We had to ask for our waitress several times, even to get the bill.

The breakfast was excellent! There were 7 of us. We all ate something different and everyone loved what they ordered.

Four of us had breakfast on Labor day. Immediate seating and service from server. Very good eggs benedict. Others enjoyed their food just don't remember what they choose. Terrific memorabilia all over the walls.
