I agree with some of the reviews regarding the condition and decor of the restaurant. They could definitely be updated to make it a better dining experience. Ignoring that, the service was great and the food was very good. My Dad had ham and eggs. He said that the ham was the best that he's ever tasted. I had a... More

First off, the atmosphere and decor is horrible. An outdated bright blue with purple seating, complete with stained ceiling tiles. I ordered what I was told was the most popular, the Philly sandwich with fries...the beef was tough as was the not one but TWO long dark hairs I found within the sandwich. The fries were your average frozen. The... More

This place was nothing special. I would have preferred finding an IHOP for breakfast. Would try other places rather than going back.

The breakfast dishes here are great. You can get your traditional eggs and bacon and pancakes etc. For the more adventurous, you can get unique skillets like the German or the Polish or the Greek.

Do yourself a favor and cook something at home. Even if you burned it, it would be better than anything you'd get here. We dined here twice, the first time for breakfast. The omelets were overcooked and rubbery, the toast burned and the hash browns barely sat on the flattop. We decided to try one more time so we ordered... More

This is a great diner-type restaurant with good food. We went for a late dinner and the server was pleasant and helpful. The facilities are older and dated, but all the food was good, including the eggs Benedict that had a nice slice of real ham. Breakfast is served all day! The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, so a great... More

Love their food because it was delicious and lots of food. The price was very reasonable. Typical American family restaurant. A very great place to get breakfast.

My husband and I had breakfast here for the first time. Found this restaurant online, which had very good reviews compared to other area restaurants. Atmosphere: Older, family-style/small town mom-and-pop's style restaurant. Service: EXCELLENT!!! The two waiters were very experienced, refilled water and coffee several times, checked on us appropriately, and interacted with several customers in warm, friendly, professional manner.... More
