Had breakfast here and the food was great. Pancakes, eggs, and bacon in ample amounts. You will not leave hungry. Sorry I didn't have a few more meals here. Very reasonable prices.

Getting a little run down around the edges but still good food and great service. Busy place as it serves lots of tourists. We had lunch and enjoyed our meal.

I ordered a hamburger. I was really hungry, but I didn't finish it. My wife had the fried chicken. The food was terrible. The service was also poor (slow, inattentive). I don't mind over paying for food, but I wish I could have had food...More
