“Mother's Day breakfast”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Arrived at 10 am, gretted with fresh carnations for each lady. Our part of three icluding the 92 year old matriarch were treated like royalty. Our coffee never ran out, servers, bussers and even the owner were out with the customers meeting everyones' needs. Pleasant, attentive and the mood of the dining room was just as their name states- Friendly. Such a busy day for them and when we asked for anything "when they had time" the response was "we always have time now".

Food, we have the french toast, a wonderful spinach and swiss cheese omelet, and yes, the matriarch ordered the Alaskan Waffle. My gosh- it was huge complete with ice cream, strawberries, cream and garnished with caramel drizzle, pecans and mini chocolate chips- She ate 3/4 of it! Amazing

“Good Bang for Your Buck”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

This place was recommended by one of the local residents and the advice was good. Our server was pleasant and efficient. We told here we were traveling and this was our first time. She took the time to make sure we noted the day's specials. My husband ordered a sirloin steak special. Very tasty. I ordered the corned beef and cabbage. Very good. The portions were huge and the price was very reasonable. The ambiance is family neighborhood diner and that was OK with what we were looking for that day. This must be the place for the locals as a couple was seated next to us and the server merely asked "Do you want your regular?" and the drinks and food came. Nice friendly place; most definitely would go back.

“Just So So!!!!”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

We have been to this restaurant before and had always been good. We went there early last evening after a shopping trip and I was greatly disappointed. On a positive note they do give you plenty of food to eat. My husband had the Jumbo fried shrimp dinner and he said it was good. I ordered the Lasagna and it was terrible. The sauce was loaded w/ sugar just awful the meals came w/ bread and butter, choice of soup or salad. We had the salads which were standard but very good fresh and crisp. The server was very good and did a good job. Sadly to say this has finished me off with this place.

“Good food but poor service”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

We sat down and it took 30 minutes to get soup and salad. Three other tables came, ate, and left before we got our food. It is a shame because the food is so good and yet the service was so poor. I would not recommended this restaurant if you have an appointment or busy schedule. All we had ordered was two fish fries and two meals off the breakfast menu. One of the tables who got there after us and left before us had also gotten the fish.
