This is a cute little diner type place. I like them for breakfast. It is exactly what you expect from a family restaurant in a small town.

The restaurant is light and open. Perhaps 20% of the tables were occupied when we arrived for a late lunch on the road. Husband ordered a reuben sandwich which he said was exceptionally good. I didn't fare as well. I wasn't served the cup of soup which, according to my menu, was included with my meal. When I asked the... More

Went for breakfast. It seems you can't order items a la cart, even if you're willing to pay for the full entree'. So much food wasted. And the food was not great. My omelet was more than singed, not light or fluffy, greasy and flat. The biscuits and gravy were bland and could have used some seasoning. No tissue in... More

I try to write positive reviews whenever possible, but I just can't say anything very positive about this restaurant. I ordered a pork tenderloin which was the special of the day. It was greasy and tasted "off", so I could only eat a couple of bites. The sides were not much better. The restaurant didn't strike me as very clean... More

We visited with a large group. Several had the chef salad which was very large and the ranch dressing was tasty. Fried chicken dinners with salad (only lettuce and tomato), hot roll, potato and ice cream for dessert were well liked. Others were also pleased with their Reuben and fried catfish dinners. Pies and cobblers looked great too. They also... More

Headed westward we wanted a good, reasonable meal for lunch. The Trip Advisor reviews made this sound the spot in the area. I had one of the lunch specials: Pork Tenderloin Sandwich with a Cup of Soup. I ordered the beef noodle soup. The soup was fine, but the pork tenderloin sandwich was the real treat! It was quite large... More

Stopped on a Friday night and had great service and good food! Prices were so reasonable for how much food you get. You won't leave there hungry!

We live locally, and this has become our favorite go to eatery. The best part is they serve breakfast anytime, and it's a big one. Priced decent as well. We will keep going back for more!

Looks like a couple women run it and they have a cook in the back. Good amount of choices with specials. Its like a small older diner, but you can see where it was cut off of a larger operation. The diner is all that is left. Place was clean.

It was the only restaurant open on a Sunday evening as we traveled home. Service was great. Food was average but very worth the price. We were glad to find it.
