Great corn fritters They're chilli is good, pancakes are huge. I really enjoy the atmosphere and the staff. And in the winter I really like they're hot chocolate.

So they stop serving pancakes at 11:00 AM. No idea why, but totally ok as the french toast is fantastic. If I lived in North Pole, this would be my go-to for breakfast. Everything about it was good.

The food was average. The chicken for the sandwiches is obviously pre-breaded and frozen. Fries are good and the milkshakes and pies are excellent.

This is a nice retro place. Food is good and lots of it. Coffee is great in the morning. They have great service at anytime of the day.

My husband and I both really enjoy eating here and our kids love it too! Their food is great! I love their buffalo chips. But everything I've tried there has been good. Can't wait to go back.

So good, we ate there twice. At recommendation of friends we ate dinner there and though moderately priced, staff is friendly/family feel to the place. Clearly a favorite of the locals. A lot of fun to sit and watch the cook keep track of all the orders and fly through creating your meal. Highly recommend the hamburger steak with onions... More

Down to earth, friendly and cozy place for an informal meal. The people are super-friendly. I was there with a local (Don K) and they treated me like I'd been there forever. The breakfast was great and so much food.

The food is great. The atmosphere and food takes you back to a 50s diner. The plates of food are huge and this is not really a place to watch calories....Friendly locals, both behind the counter and at the tables.
