We arrived late and wanted some hot, fresh food. That is exactly what we received. I had fish and my husband had shrimp. Both were excellent.

Stopped at Cunningham's restaurant for breakfast on our way out of town. Staff was friendly and most important the food was great. All 4 of us had a different meal and we were jealous of each other's plate. I would highly recommend this place.

The food was fair. We both said we would not choose to eat there again. My pastie was good but since it was my first I can't really compare it to others. My husband's roast beef sandwich had a lot fatty meat in it.
