In Alabama for work and needed a good breakfast place, well found one. This diner has the best omelet for the price and it is on the table super fast. My coffee cup was never empty and the staff was fast and courteous. Try the biscuits.....they are great.

I had the eggs benedict and it was really tasty. My friend had country fried steak and it was yummy too. I will definitely be back to... More

This place has a awesome atmosphere and great food. The desert's are very good too. We first went with some friends and didn't know what to expect. We have been back numerous times and love it every time we go.

I've lived nearby for years and never visited. Once we tried it we have been back multiple times. The only thing wrong with this restaurant is that you eat way too much Because everything is really good. The specials are hard to choose between. I love the fettuccine alfredo with the Cajun crab. The crab cake isn't like I am... More
