A great local restaurant for breakfast and lunch… I have been going to this restaurant for 30 years and find it to have a friendly staff and quality food… This business is operated/owned by a local gentleman named Jim... he does a good job in providing quality food at a reasonable price!....

Only open in the mornings and for the lunch crowd. Food is decent and the wait staff very nice. This restaurant has been around since my mom was a girl and she is now in her mid 80s.

Old time family restaurant where everybody might know your name! Seems like a number of local folks frequent this restaurant on a regular basis. Good food; reasonable prices. Everything seems to be homemade. Lots of collectibles to look at inside while you're waiting for your meal. Friendly and attentive staff. We had sandwiches for lunch, both were good. Would recommend... More

We stopped in for lunch, as we were passing through town. We loved the cool car collection, but was not thrilled with the food or service. There are pictures of things printed ON the menu, that aren't available IN the menu. The thousand island dressing was homemade, but nobody tasted it to see if it was ok. It was not!... More
