Very nice local restaurant serving a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. All orders arrived hot and quickly once we placed our order. Good tasting halibut burgers and Reuben sandwich were very tasty. Definitely worth a return visit to try more of the...More

Went here for dinner and was not disappointed. The large menu offers "home-style" cooking, a large variety and home made pies. A good family type restaurant like the name says. I had the chicken fried steak dinner and my wife had an omelet which she...More

Decent restaurant that has okay service and food. Some menu items are very good, and breakfast is always a safe bet, but other items can be hit-or-miss. I ordered a reuben, which was quite good, and the fries were very good. I did not enjoy...More

Comfortable booths, server by name of Jolene was very accommodating and an excellent server. The menu is a little too big but meals looked fresh. Food is a little different with each cook. Owner lady is very harsh on workers.

Felt like one of the family! We got this recommendation from a local and were very pleased. Great fish and chips. Large portions and homemade desserts! Big cinnamon rolls looked so good, we got them to go!

Usually eat pancakes here and they are usually pretty good. My friends have enjoyed other meals with an occasional not so good meal or lesser amount of food on plate showing up.h Reasonable prices.

Well not to worry… Wasilla is not known as the food Mecca capital of even Alaska let alone anything else. After the main street intersection – KGB/Parks Highway/Main Street – you will find this restaurant on the right-hand... More
