We stopped on our way back to Wisconsin. Like to frequent local restaurants rather than chains. We both has breakfast. Portion sizes were generous. Prices were very reasonable. Service was great. Would definitely stop in again if in the area.

Nice family restaurant with good food. Reasonable prices, even the senior meal included homemade ham and bean soup, simple salad bar including pie (!), and bread. Just a good meal with friendly service.
