Been going there for several years. It used to be better. Nonetheless, they have a very nice all-day breakfast menu apt to satisfy even the largest appetites. I would not recommend any regular menu entree. They take forever to come out and they are nothing to really brag about. Standard diner fare. Their strawberry shortcakes are big and really good,...

Stopped in for dinner on trip from NC to Hilton, NY. I wish I could remember the waiter's name. He was so friendly he made it a joy to eat there. He had been there many years. Dinner came with 2 sides. We both picked salad as one side and they were fresh, crispy and plentiful. The place was constantly... More

We were here for breakfast, had a very good meal with excellent service. They had some fantastic looking deserts but since we were eating breakfast, we managed to resist the temptation!! It would be worth going back for lunch or dinner just to try some of the deserts!!

Stopped over with my son's soccer team. From the beginning we did not feel welcomed. They seemed to be bothered from such a large name of people. The food was not good and expensive. The service was slow and cumbersome. The place is large and not busy at the time but our orders took time and longer took the checks.... More

I was looking for something different to try with my dad and we ended up here. First impressions were nice. It was spacious and clean and there was a side bar area which also had a lot of room. My dad order the Mexican Taco Salad which he enjoyed. It comes with lettuce, homemade chili, tomatoes, olives, jalapeno peppers and... More

Went for lunch with my daughter...she ordered a grilled chicken sandwich which came out with no grill marks and looking more microwaved. I'm sure it most likely wasn't but she said it was the worst ever. We asked if we could get her fry's loaded and they sure were loaded with a clump of cheese and grease and no bacon!... More

I've lived down the street from this place for 5 years, and we just never got around to going here. We woke up late one Sunday and decided we would go out for breakfast for a change. I wish I would of picked a better place. When we got there we were seated by a hostess whom also took our... More

The homefries were "old"...like they'd been reheated several times; the breakfast sausage definitely had an "off" taste...we didn't dare eat it. We were looking for a good local place for breakfast; and, this definitely is not it.
