A group of 15 stopped in for dinner. They only had one waitress who was in her 60s, which I am not complaining about because she did a great job but there was only one other table with a couple in there. This waitress was also the bar tender fixing the drinks for everyone. She was so busy she tripped... More

We were looking for a place to get breakfast... decided to stop here. Nothing fancy, wasn't sure what type of place because of the name. Friendly staff, good food & great service.. Good coffee. It seemed like a favorite spot for the locals.

It may look small from the outside, but it fits many inside, but it is a favorite spot for the locals. We were seated quickly, gave our order and our food was out in no time. Sure it may not be the most up to date, the staff is on point and the food is hot and delicious. My husband... More

Yesterday, my wife and I stopped in for lunch. What turned out to be the LONE waitress seated two couples who came in after us, before us! there were only three tables full of lunch time customers when we arrived. We figured it would be mid-afternoon by the time we would actually be served lunch! We bolted for the door... More

I am visiting the area for just a few days. I love crab and had crab cakes at three restaurants three days in a row. Dirty Harry's crab cakes are the best. They are flavorful almost buttery and memorable. Really very good. Stop here if you can. You won't regret it.

I would probably pick another name for a restaurant, but you can't beat their bakery! We had dinner nearby and decided to stop in for some dessert to go - nice selection even at night. This has old school diner food, so we came back the next morning for breakfast. Fresh baked goods and a really nice selection of breakfast... More

Headed here after our original destination was closed (just switched to dinner only times). Had great omelettes. The service was great and the value was good for the area.

We stayed very close to this restaurant. We go there every year on our summer vacation. We always have the same waitress who is very funny. The dounuts are great as well as the breakfasts.

My parent took me here for breakfast one morning and boy was I sad. I had an omelette which tasted fine but was cold, so I decided to get a desert. Here's where it gets really bad. I asked for a slice of their homemade chocolate cake and they gave me like a quater of a cake (which was all... More

The coffee was good and hot. There are almost too many choices on the menu but we has porkchop & eggs, yogurt with fruit & bagel, grits, toast and bacon. The portions were all healthy and satisfying. The hash browns were tasty as they were generous with the seasoning but not overly so. Same goes for the porkchops - they... More
