Breakfast was good. The portions were big. But the bill for 5 of us plus a 2 year old was around $130 plus tip. I was happy to find a Denny’s in Aberdeen the next day on our way out of town.

Great prime rib. Not so great Reuben. One of the pricier places in town. The service is great when restaurant isn't full but spotty when busy. Only go occasionally.

It is very family oriented and the waitstaff is extremely friendly. We requested that they split a couple of our meals and they did so with a smile and didn't charge for that additional service.
