Local favorite. Check hours first closes at 2:00 and only open 6 days a week. Great portion size, they even make pancakes that are the size of a plate. One of our families favorite places for breakfast. This is an old train station and occasionally trains roll past the window. No credit cards, cash and check only. Portions are large... More

My dining companion had a great meal. My onion rings were pretty good, but the club sub was very bad. The reason for 1 star is the server did nothing about it. The decor is very enjoyable in an old train station.

Breakfasts are the specialty here, although they also do lunch. The lay-out, furnishings and decor are deliberately low-key, old-fashioned small-town/rural American. (UK visitors may find the hunting and shooting emphasis a bit unusual, but in small towns in the USA that is normal.) The food is also very typical of Mid-Western and Southern small towns - and it is delicious!... More

Stopped in for breakfast and was very impressed. Restaurant is located in an old railroad depot and is very cute and comfortable. Seating is limited, so you will have to wait for a table as this place gets packed! The food is excellent and the portions are huge!! You will be taking food home! Everything is fresh made and high... More

This restaurant closes at 2pm so no dinners but the breakfast s and lunches are outstanding. You get big helpings and the price is just right. The staff are all very friendly and attentitive even when they are busy. This is a great place to catch an early breakfast.

They serve what I call a "wood chopper's breakfast". You can eat one of these, then chop wood all day long without stopping to eat again. Big and good.
