This is a great place to grab lunch before more sightseeing! The service was above & beyond. Friendly & quick. We sat at the counter & chatted when the servers weren't busy. My husband got the buffalo burger. I got the pulled pork. Hot & fresh! The price was reasonable too.

We were looking for a quick bite (diner style) and didn't want to sit down to dine at the OFI restaurant. This place was quick, friendly, and reasonable. They make basic fare like burgers, soup, sandwiches, etc.

Sometimes you don't want to spend the money on the (slightly) more expensive OF Inn Dining Room or OF Lodge Cafeteria. The 1897 building and original counter remind geezers like me of the snack shops of our childhood - but even cooler! If you eat reasonably, you could get breakfast and lunch here for less than $20 total! We got... More

This place has quick service and has normal type of sandwiches and fries at a more affordable price. Chicken sandwich was good and decent burgers. If you are on a tight budget check it out.

We often eat here, and this trip had a great spicy chicken sandwich. Fries were hot and crispy, root bear float topped it all off nicely. Service by Jeff was good, and prices are good for the food you get.

Totally surprised with the food. It's cafe food but not as standard as expected. The child cheese dog was giant and delicious, good burgers, fries and real milkshakes. Priced were not that bad and the service was great!

We enjoyed eating here very much. The food was delicious. We ate grilled chicken, cheeseburgers, and a pork sandwich. They give you a choice of a side salad or fries. We also ordered a vanilla shake. All were very good. The decor is old fashioned and you have a choice to eat at the bar or at a table. Seating... More
