The food was good, but when we wanted something it was a big struggle for us to get our waitress. We held our hands up, and called out, so we felt ignored.

We came on a long weekend and the place was packed, but once we were seated (there were seven of us) we were served pleasantly and promptly. Loved the variety of the breakfast menu for children and adults. The treat was having mini-chocolate milkshakes - Yum!

We love diners and search for them when our of town. We had the burgers, onion rings and fries. Best burger around. Wish I had the homemade milkshake but was a windy cold day. Awesome decorations. A real nostalgic diner.

Food was good, but made better because we had Scott as our server. He was so accommodating and helpful, really sweet. We had the chicken tenders. Huge portions of all white meat very tasty!

We love to eat here when we're in the area. There is always a large crowd, today's wait was 20 minutes and so worth the wait. Food is always delicious and the prices are reasonable for this area.

Sat at window table. Got served very quickly. Ordered homemade hash.. yum. I enjoyed it all. My husband didn't like toast, but I did. He wanted it pre-buttered. I'm ok buttering toast myself!! Great waitress.
