“Not so good.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Prices and service are good, but food quality is not. Didn't want others to be deceived by good reviews. There's steaks and seafood on the menu but I couldn't imagine eating them here. A lot of other diners eating hot dogs with chili. Club sandwich looked good. This is more of a hot dog, grilled cheese kind of place.

“Good Choice for Any Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Pleasant and efficient staff serve home cooked meals with a friendly, caring demeanor. They've been around since 1955, so they know a little about service.

Many locals were in the restaurant when we had dinner there...though we noticed a few were enjoying breakfast items. Portions were large; food was good if not outstanding but the staff made us feel at home - completely casual and especially comforting if you've spent the day in the outdoors and don't want to deal with "dining out".

“Another review of this restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

We continue to visit Curly's and I usually order their pork loin sandwich, which continues to be very tasty.
This time my wife tried their fish sandwich for the first time and enjoyed it equally well as other meals she has had. I had to help her finish it because it was just too much for her. I didn't mind it at all. :-)
A friendly place to visit and we usually get to see local friends there. Non-smoking atmosphere and continues to be kept clean and bright!
