Went there for dinner. Fish fry was very good. It was all you can eat, but I was full after the first portion. Wife had a breakfast item and said it was tasty. The waitress was friendly and fast. The manager was very nice, too....Looks like they have a good crew and good management at this site. We will be back.More

We are usually 3 or 4 people plus my Service dog and we have had breakfast, lunch and dinner over the last 3 years. The food has always been great, large portions for a moderate price. The service can be slow when they are crowded...but over all it is good.More

Maybe this place is good for breakfast. It was poor for dinner. Waitress was not good. Floors (carpet) very dirty. Food was bad enough that I only ate half. Price is ok.

I can see the draw..... large portions of old school comfort food for a reasonable price. The food itself was ok, not great. I had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans. The atmosphere is family friendly (aka lots of small children so it...can be kind of loud in there). Staff didn’t seem engaged. The facility needs improvements. Was hoping for more given the good reviews.More

This adorable diner was right near our hotel, and after seeing reviews, we decided to try it for breakfast. What a great experience!! Top quality service from the moment you arrive! The host, our wonderful server - just terrific!! And the food! VERY generous and...even better than homemade (I didn't have to do dishes!) The meal was so great, we took another couple back that same evening for dinner - with the same satisfaction and enjoyment!! Food was great, service terrific!! Highly recommend this place!! We really enjoyed it!More

I’ve been coming here for years with great food & service. So I decided to come here for Mothers Day & had the worst experience. It took 3hrs to get my curbside pick up. There were over 40 people outside waiting in the heat for...food pick up. They were way under staffed & unorganized. There was no communication with the customers waiting outside, the staff just seem to put food on a shelf and you help yourself to it. With no ID/ Names on the bags. I guess since the food was already paid for threw their app, they could careless on who got their food. People ask if they could cancel their ordered and they said they couldn’t, you would have to try and come back another day for a refund. So food just piled up on the shelf & people were getting irritated with the staff & walking away. But after 3 hrs I received my food & 1/2 of it was cold. Smh, who ever was running this location on this day can’t handle their management position and should be terminated. Never again. A unsatisfied customerMore

We were very disappointed with our visit. Food was bland, waitress could care less, place needed a broom and someone to keep the place swept. Very busy though, if these people were repeat customers, I would like to know why? I had a turkey sandwich,...couldn’t really find anything that looked interesting. Husband tried breakfast, it was dry and not good.More

This is a very busy diner featuring all kinds of comfort foods and specializing in breakfast! Make sure you arrive with a hearty appetite or bring someone who wants to share a meal! If you don't want to wait for a table, try out the...counter stools where you have a great view of the kitchen production. Sunday mornings are wild!More
