The food came quickly and the portion was a good size. I ordered the seafood platter and was very satisfied with it, particularly the haddock and the clams. They were very tasty. The service was good the price was very reasonable.

Restaurant has a very large menu with reasonable prices. Quite a few Greek specialties. Parents had fish and chips ( both said fish was good ).

We just came from their breakfast special and I give it a 10 out of 10! And just like Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "I'll be back !" Besides the food and service I liked their "bottomless cup of coffee".

We have had dinner here twice this month, as always it’s like going to visit family. Good selection, something for everyone. Had a new server & she was very pleasant.

Family style restaurant, everything is good, we eat there at least once a month. This spot looks like your family mom and pop place, and the food is very good.

Frequent this restaurant on weekly basis. Typically pick from breakfast menu (various omelettes) or from lunch menu (soup / clubhouse, etc.). Food is value priced and good quality. Service is very good.
