Our waiter was awesome. He was very attentive and personable. Three members of our party ordered the Crab Benny and they raved about it. Others ordered a omelette but didn't enjoy it as much as the Crab Benny.

Went here with extended family numbering 16. Had wonderful service and the food was spot on. The fried potatoes were awesome. Didn't care so much for the bloody Mary. Overall it was a good breakfast.

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat and enjoyed the meal. The burger was a little over done for Medium, but the flavor was good. We also tried a Reuben sandwich with the coleslaw which was really good. The homemade chips were good -...More
