Soups always homemade, chunky and tasty. Good burrito for an anglo place. Salads are great for a light meal when you don't want to mess up the kitchen ater a long day but don't want huge potions either. Breakfast is crowded. Theres a reason! The senior discount is handy and the servers are polite not overly friendly but attentive and... More

This is a "down home" style place with good traditional dishes. I like the variety and quality of meals here, and have been here many times. Friendly staff and consistent quality.

This is a good family diner. The offer all 3 meals. We were there for breakfast. They have a nice variety. They have the best raisin toast anywhere. I enjoy that they offer flavored coffee creamers. They are located near a number of hotels. It got really busy after 9:00 on the Sunday morning we were there

Lots of things to choose form on the menu. Service was a little slow, but friendly. Food was filling and no issues, just not spectacular.

This place is great for breakfast. Great service, great food. Not a fancy place, just a local, hometown restaurant. I enjoy eating here ever year when visiting Up North.

Stop here every once and a while. They are one reliable spot in Petoskey we can count on. Went there last week after attending the county fair. As always food and service were spot on. We have over the last couple years tried many different items and all were very good. Plus they serve breakfast any time of day.
