Stopped in to cousins for lunch and it's still good. Nothing fancy family owned restaurant that serves simple good food. Wait stuff is fat and friendly. Great place for seniors.

Close to numerous auto related dealers and service outlets so handy to grab a bite while waiting. Food acceptable but not in any way special. Not remarkably clean, staff not the slightest interested I think in the food nor the dining experience. It looks very old and tired. Not remarkably busy but steady patron flow. Could use a serious revamp,... More

I've had breakfast here twice in the past two weeks. The staff are attentive and friendly, the food good, it's served promptly, even when the place is quite busy. The place attracts a ton of regulars, most of whom sit at one end. Noisy at times, but it's quite endearing.

My wife is a "regular" visitor as she finds the pan fried haddock to always be excellent. The serving includes a large piece of fish, 2 scoops of potatoes, cole slaw, and mixed vegetables. She did not opt for the soup and dessert that was included. My toasted cheese and tomato sandwich was fine, but not up to the reported... More

Craving home cooked food? This place is for you!Went here with my parents + thoroughly enjoyed the meal. They had liver + onions with bacon, I had a hot turkey sandwich. Delicious on all levels. No frills, clean, cozy place. Servers have obliviously worked here a long time + take great pride in the service. Can't wait to return. This... More
