Came in for late breakfast around 11:00am. Breakfast supposedly served until 2:00pm so the sign outside said. Ordered the Archie breakfast, 2 eggs, potatoes & toast. Bacon was extra. The "country style potatoes" were dry, overcooked, burned, obviously reheated from another day - too dry...More

We go here for lunch when taking a break from the aquarium. The food is more than budget costs but the burgers and fish is very good.
