Lots of food but nothing tastes good! We ordered the 20$ meal for each one of us, they brought everything out almost at the same time. That was crazy and everything was awful! Do not recommend at all! Btw cash only place.

This is a restaurant with a large following. The food is good and the portions large. Good selection on the menu and breakfast is served through lunch time. Staff is very friendly. This is not a large restaurant so you may have to wait occasionally.

This is one of the best pizza places in town. They have a buy one get for $2.50 large pizzas. The food is great too! Try the spaghetti and then go back for breakfast. You can't go wrong here no matter what you order.

We just thought we'd try this since some extended relatives ordered their pizza once and we liked that. We are SO glad we tried the restaurant! If you want glitz, it's not for you. If you want simply clean and nice with great food, this...More

We have eaten dinner at the Little Oven for years and years, but never breakfast (served until 11 am). I chose an entree from the Lenten Specials menu, the Crab Cakes Benedict. Crab cakes, poached eggs, seasoned tomato slices, hollandaise sauce, and the no charge...More
