We were driving through Marion and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Stopped for lunch. Food was good, service was good and everyone was very friendly and welcoming! It seems that a lot of local folks eat there as the owners knew people as they came into the restaurant. That's always a good sign! Would recommend.

Taking kids to a restaurant is always dicey, but thanks to a responsive staff,everything turned out fine. The sandwiches were first-rate. The cooks obviously take pride in their work. When a staff member overheard one child say that the chips were stale, they were quickly replaced with fresh ones -- without asking.

This restaurant got rave reviews online but our party of four had a disappointed experience. Due to being the height of lunch hour our food took 40 minutes to arrive but our drinks were always refilled during that time. The owner apologised for the long wait and said he would give us all free cheesecake where dessert was already included in the meal so we weren't sure what he was talking about!. Our bill did get any discount what so ever when we paid. We ordered 2 Burger plates, a BLT and a salad. Other than the bacon being a little burnt on the ends on the BLT the food was good with the salad being the best out of the 4 meals. Looking forward to Cheesecake for dessert, they had wonderful choices. Three of us ordered the New York Cheesecake and one ordered the Snickerdoodle. The New York Cheesecake was definitely off. The source of the terrible metal aftertaste was the bottom of the cheesecake. It was in edible by all three. The Snickerdoodle however was good. The restaurant gets a POOR review as opposed to an Average or Good is because the food preparation was poor with the burnt bacon on the BLT and the totally inedible New York Cheesecake which I feel was old cheesecake that had absorbed the taste of the metal pan it was baked in.

We stopped on the way to Boone at the suggestion of tripadvisor ratings and reviews. The cauliflower salad was delish. Like Bruce said, it's like a low-carb potato salad. My hubby ordered a burger which he said tasted more like meatloaf with all of the seasoning and onion. It was neat to see that Bruce and his wife were both there. Bruce went to every table to tell customers about the specials.
