This is a basic comfort food restaurant. The food was good and so was the service. Close to the hotel we were in. We went there for dinner and breakfast. We would go there again.

This is a great place to go if you want to order a big breakfast! Tasty eggs, hashbrowns and bacon! The wait staff were friendly and quick to refill coffee cups.
