We ate here on a whim. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and very reasonably priced. We four ate outside on the porch. Though harassed, our server kept her cool and was great with us.

Food was good. Typical diner-type atmosphere with friendly wait staff and quick service. The biggest issue was that there were several dirty dishes/utensils during our visit - we didn't complain, just didn't use those items.

Kitchen help might not know the difference between eggs over easy and scrambled, but I accepted it anyway. Food was good. Reasonable prices for tourist town. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Offered re-fills on coffee several times. Order "issue" wouldn't stop me from returning.
