Old themed restaurant. Lot's of older folks come here on a daily basis to eat as they are all known by name. Prices are reasonable, food tasted good...service was terrible. Problem is, we were the only ones eating at the time. Our waitress also changed...More

Went there for a late lunch. I planned to just grab a burger (which I did in a way) and my wife was thinking of a basic salad. In addition to good variety of lunches, etc. on the regular menu, there was a wide variety...More
