We go here once in a while, not sure why we don't go more my youngest loves the waffles and I like the BLT's. The service is usually pretty good, sometimes it gets busy and there's a wait. We like sitting at the counter, lots...More

We might have come in at a busy time, but we heard multiple comments from the wait staff about how the kitchen had messed up multiple orders. Our food took over an hour, yet it was somehow cold. They must have made 90% of our...More

Our waitress was working her tail off the day we were there, and during the fair. It was great food. Kids enjoyed their food. My BLT was good and hubby got the meatloaf (he approves).

A worthwhile stop for a good casual breakfast at a reasonable price. We visit every year on our way to a family gathering and have not been disappointed. Menu is classic American diner fare, with hearty breakfasts, sandwiches, and salads. Prices under $10 per person.

Our group of four was driving from Green Bay to Mackinac, and decided to see the old lighthouse in Escanaba, Mi. We saw it, enjoyed it, and decided we needed a burger/snack to hold us over until we got to St. Ignace, Mi for dinner....More

We were looking for a good hearty home cooked meal to travel another 7 hour drive. We found it here. Flavorful, Americana classics done well. The decor is dated (who cares). The staff friendly - our waitress was Justine. I was able to swap out...More

As motorcycle travel writers, we frequent roadside eateries regularly and can usually find something worthwhile about most family restaurants and diners. Because this is an independent that may have had an off day, I'll give the benefit of the doubt at two stars, but this...More
