Their ice cream sundaes are a generous size and delicious. Breakfast was great. Eggs made to order and delicious bacon. Friendly wait staff. Would definitely go back for other meals if we had the chance.

One word = MILKSHAKE. Rest of menu is simple & straightforward. Hot & cold sandwiches fresh salads & ice cream. Homemade sweet tea is refreshing. Family owned business that is clean & efficient. Perfect for families with small children and seniors (no stairs).
