We came for a family breakfast. Everyone ordered pancakes. The blueberry pancakes were good. The apple cinnamon pancakes were just pancakes with cold pie filling poured over the top. They would have been much better if the pie filling was warmed. The staff were wonderful.

We met old friends for lunch and each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our service was fast and friendly and our food was served hot and tasty. I would recommend.

Went for the corn beef and cabbage. It was very disappointing. Very dry and unappealing. The potatoes had big ugly eyes still in them. I should of had the Rueben. It looked much better. Very disappointed.

We used to go here frequently but tried a few times since the change in ownership. Must not have the same cook since many of the menu items were not prepared the same. Why would anyone grill meatloaf? We will not return.

Hello im astonished by the 1 star review. As we don't grill our meatloaf we steam it. As before it was microwaved. That being said we hope you return. Thanks, Management

This our go to place for burgers. They cook them the way you want them. The meat is fresh from the local butcher and delicious. Homemade chips are light and crisp. Servers are friendly. No matter what we've ordered- it's always been good.
