Our family enjoys coming here when we are HUNGRY. The portions are BIG. Grama like to take half of her meal home with her. Sometimes at lunch we share a salad. Family owned. Good home style cooking.

Buttercup is one of my go to places for a good breakfast. My breakfast of choice is waffles, usually topped with strawberries. So tasty, I am drooling just thinking of them. the wait staff is friendly and efficient - there when you need them.

Food was excellent. Dessert was amazing. It feels like an upscale Shoneys. Ambiance wasn't great but staff was warm and friendly. Menu has a ton of variety to appeal to almost any combination of tastes.

I've dined here many times, and in my opinion, the quality lately has slipped. Today I ordered the Salmon Niçoise from the spring menu. While the salmon was a nice portion and properly cooked, most everything else about the salad was slap-dash and second rate: mushy, over-cooked green beans, hard boiled eggs so overdone as to be blue in the...

I went into our family vacation dinner at the Buttercup assuming it was just like the old Coco's restaurants. What I got was more. The place was clean and had a higher class atmosphere that a regular diner. We got seated quickly and the staff at this location was very friendly. We ordered several dishes and were delighted.

If you're tempted by the sound of "homemade biscuit" next to the word "benedict", just remember this review and fight the urge to think it's good. I had it at Buttercup Grill and it was sort of a waste of an order. It's $11.99, and was just not tasty at all. That's all.

Buttercup is my go to place for comfort food. It is a locals restaurant. I love to go to locals restaurants when traveling. It is a great bang for your dollar.

I have eaten here on several occasions, and while I have never had a bad meal, I can honestly say that I have never had a great meal. Breakfast is good, just not exceptional. Had dinner here once with my parents, and will never return for that experience....food was not good at all. Breakfast is ok though.
