We were staying in a cabin about 3 miles up the road from this place so we ended up eating 2 of our dinners here. We really liked all of the food we ordered. We had the baby back ribs, chicken fried steak and the...More

The food was decent. Don't take a long time to bring a customer menus / take drink orders. Don't take a VERY long time to ask a customer if they want dessert / the bill - after a long wait, they're more than ready to...More

We stopped because of the eclectic signs, but came back twice more for the pie. They were all good, but the Apple and Coconut were the best. Friendly staff and a cute setting.

Food was good, service was very friendly, the poor was excellent. It's the best food in the area and the history is fun to read about.

The skillet dish won our hearts and tastebuds! The eggs came out hot, as was coffee, toast and bacon. Service slow so be not in a hurry, then savor each bite and waste not one bite. Share with others in your party. The area slideshow...More

Incredibly overpriced. Had very mediocre fish n' chips, the fries were the only good part of our meal. Fettucine Alfredo was oily and flavorless. Waitress was friendly.

We have been here a few times. It's never been great. Salad bar not very fresh looking. Tuna melt made with cheap tuna. Club sandwich good. Sweet potato fries were OK. The letup is even cheap tasting. We didn't have pie but it looked good

The only thing there that is wonderful to eat is their on-site baked apple pie. I would take the advice of other reviewers and eat accross the street at Subway (especially if it is lunch time). If it's dinner go North or... More
