Stopped in for breakfast last Friday, and made it before the con-goer rush. It was only alright. We had the chicken and waffles and the biscuits and gravy, but neither was really great. The gravy was only so-so to go with doughy biscuits, and the...More

Great menu. Good food. Reasonable prices. Horrible service. Servers drop food & RUN!!! Tough to get a beverage refill. Heaven help you if you need anything extra. The only time they really spend any time at the table is when dropping the check off &...More

A busy place yet little to no wait for a table. Wide variety menu. I ordered the large stack blueberry pancakes, which is almost too much for one man to handle, they were outstanding. My friend had a Bloody Mary and said it was one...More
