Old time, friendly diner style waitress. My husband's favorite breakfast joint. He has biscuits and gravy. I stick to eggs with the good biscuit

The visitors center recommended this place to me. I got the Denver omelette special. It was a huge 3 egg omelette that came with toast and hash browns. It was more than enough for 2 people for breakfast. Prepared fresh and very tasty. This is obviously a local's hangout, and the waitress seemed to know everybody that walked through the... More

We have always enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Dining Room. The décor is pleasant with colored table cloths and chairs having colored covers. the waitresses are pleasant and sometimes comical! Our food has been very tasty. I especially recommend the salads, omelets, and breakfasts. I have heard that they serve excellent ribs one evening a week but you have... More

Clean, unhurried atmosphere. When the salt and pepper shakers and the bathrooms are clean, my rating is high and this restaurant hits that rating.

We were looking forward to going to the dining room resturant. Big mistake waste of money. Everyone raved about the bread pudding. First of all the three tablespoons that we were served had more raisins than bread. Way way too sweet. Expensive for what we were served. If you can imagine the service was worse than the food! Won't go... More

You will love it here in this quaint, small, pleasant and clean cafe'! They don't just do breakfast but that's my favorite meal and they do it right. They serve good quality breakfast meats to go with just about any type of breakfast dish there is. The waitress and service is super but it does get busy enough that you... More

This has become our favorite breakfast spot in AJ and there are plenty of choices for good breakfast. Wife thinks they get the eggs from out back because they taste so fresh. Order your bacon "crispy" if that is the way you like it. Really early or mid-morning is best to avoid waiting for a table. Friendly staff but not... More

We were in hardware store nearly next door and an employee suggested this place. We ordered lunch. I had club sandwich and friend had BLT. We both ordered lemonade. Sandwiches were very thin and seemed to be missing condiments. Kind of like the pictures in fast food locations...big fat sandwich in the picture and what is presented is paper thin.... More
