This place is nice but never seems to have nearly enough staff . Very slow service - lots of errors. Food seems too hastily prepared. Special requests are forgotten. Too bad — this used to be a special place.

Personally, I didn't get why the place is so hyped up as a local breakfast must. The menu is limited, less diverse than IHOP and service is spotty. The only unique dishes are the ones incorporating salmon lox. Also, there are $5 mimosas. Our dishes...More

We stopped here on a very cold winter Sunday for lunch. Their meals offer many homestyle comfort foods, which were very inviting on this chilly day. My husband had their turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, dressing, coleslaw and cranberry sauce. I opted for a grilled...More
