We have been here several times and the food has always been delicious with large portion sizes. Our server most recently was very easy going and made us feel very welcome and appreciated. Even though it was very busy, we didn't wait long for our food. I like to local art work that is available for sale.

Family owned and operated. Delicious food, homemade soups, nice menu, fairly priced, dine in or outside. You can bring your dog for outdoor eating.

Get there early on the weekends because a line will form pretty quickly. Locally owned and the staff are so great. This is the only place where I will order biscuits and gravy. I have never found a place that could come close to my own! These guys have it down pat. My other favorite is the eggs Benedict and... More

Excellent food and service! Everywhere else we go is airways compared to curbside. Sweet potatoe pancakes, huevos rancheros and chicken fried steak are all fabulous!

Couple minutes wait, coffee up right away even though it was busy. Waitress was efficient, attentive, and food was up quickly. Been back since.

Occasionally meet here on Saturday meet ups with a local motorcycle club. Among the places we go, this has perhaps the best food. The service also is outstanding. As in the title- I love their Salmon Benedict, but their biscuits and gravy are nothing to sneeze at, either! Good service, too.

Had the chicken salad sandwich and side salad. Greens were fresh and the balsamic dressing was good. Chicken salad sandwich was good too.

The breakfast and lunches are all delicious. Prices are a bit high and you can not order what you want on your sandwich, no changes. That was disappointing. My favorite is the BLT.
