We stop here a few times per month. The staff is always friendly and the service is always quick. The prices are very fair and the food quality is very good. When there pick 2 or 3 special is available it is a fantastic deal for a great meal.

Smothered sirloin with asparagus and red potatoes--very good! I've had asparagus before and didn't like it but my husband said "try it"--it was really well prepared and was delicious.

Average family restaurant food. Nothing to be disappointed by but nothing to write home about either.

Yes it looks like a simple breakfast and lunch place, but the food quality is much higher and specials are more ingenious than you would expect... and at a fair price. We go here regularly for the dinner specials... breaded pork loin, Peyton chicken, salmon (with amazing varying sauces), sirloin (with zip sauce!), whiskey pecan apple pork loin, fall salad,...

We went for a business lunch and although the service was good, the food was sub-par. Not sure what's happened to this restaurant in the last couple years but the food is no where near as good as it used to be.

This place is an attractive family restaurant offering the usual items. For lunch I had a salmon salad which was pretty good - it had a nice size piece of salmon on it. The salad had tomato (one piece), pecans (very few tiny pieces), dried cranberries and gorgonzola cheese (microscopic amount). It would have been better if they weren't so... More

We stopped in for breakfast Sunday after mass I haven't been here in a couple of years and I am happy to say this was much improved over my last visit. We were greeted and seated very promptly. Our waitress took our order and brought coffee quickly too. I ordered the farmer's omelette and my daughter ordered the berry French... More
