I love this place. Not because it is a gourmet restaurant. The food here is lovingly prepared and very tasty. The menu has something for everyone, from skillets galore to weight watcher delights. The service has always been outstanding. I can only attribute that to the lovely couple who own and operate it. Typically my family and I wind up... More

You can tell by the older crowd that comes here that you are going to get a good deal on good food and hefty portion sizes. I've had breakfast and lunch foods here and they are all amazing! The soups that come with the lunch entrees are great in winter!

The Pumpkin Pancakes are the best! The fireplace is on and you always get a greeting at the door. The servers are very friendly and they fill your water glass and coffee cup often. The food is really good and I have ordered different items on the menu and not been disappointed. Good size parking lot!

Better than IHOP. Better than Dennys. That's about it. Better than them. I will go back. Not perfectly clean. At all. But better than the chains.

Food choices and presentation are unique & fabulous and everything I ordered tasted great too. Staff was very nice and always ready to help, checking periodically to see if everything is OK. Nice cozy atmosphere to talk also while enjoying a breakfast / brunch meal. You don't feel rushed here either. If you do have to wait it's worth it.

I haven't had pancakes for several years, so when my friend suggested this pancake house, I jumped at the chance. Very attentive service. My corn beef hash and eggs were delicious. Pancakes too!

This is one of the places on our Sunday lunch rotation, coming in every couple months for some great home cooking. The restaurant is fairly clean for the amount of turnaround during their breakfast / lunch rushes. The decor is attractive and neat, and everything looks well kept. The staff is fairly friendly to very friendly - our last visit... More

A good breakfast place. My wife had pancakes with cinnamon, I had a western omelet. Both were good. Wait staff was prompt and friendly. Good breakfasts
