We treat ourselves occasionally to dinner out. This is a great place with reasonable prices. The atmosphere is cozy and warm.

Went there on a Saturday night at 6pm. It was very busy and hostess seemed to be very confused. She didn't know who had been seated and who was still waiting. We were seated and the service was OK. Food was decent but I left unsure what the hype was about.

From breakfast to dinner, this restaurant has you covered. The food has always been excellent! Try the baked oatmeal or the all you can eat chicken and waffles! Yum!

6 of us took our motorcycles on a destination "great food" ride. We arrived around 11 am and the restaurant was booming. They seated us immediately. All you have to do now is look at the attached picture and that says it all! Amazing food and absolutely worth the trip!

Went here for dinner while awaiting incoming passenger to MTD. Interesting facility (former bank), extensive menu, ample portions, and good prices. No license but BYOB with no corkage. Waitstaff a bit streched but friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Group has lasagne, liver and onions, and linguine with clams. All very good and too much to finish. Lots of decadent desserts that... More

A wide variety of dishes are served up nicely at this restaurant located in a former bank that has become a landmark. The staff is always friendly and the food is cooked to order. I eat here once a week and always look forward to it.

This is a beautiful old building, built in the 1800's as a bank, now a cafe. They have a large menu, daily specials, and the food is very good. Service was attentive. Good parking behind the building.

If you need to grab a hearty meal at a reasonable price, this is your place. The staff treats you like family and the food is served in generous portions with a large menu of choices.
