We stopped here on our way back from Boston to Maryland with no idea how the food was. This place was super clean and the service was outstanding. The food was yummy too!

Love the coconut shrimp salad so much, that’s all I ever get there. Friends order different things and have enjoyed all.

Located near route 17 in Paramus, typical diner fare, but prices a bit higher- maybe cause it’s near Ridgewood and it’s Bergen County. Food was good, service friendly, parking is in lot.

We were a group of 20 and the Tom Sawyer had everything set up when we arrived. Several waiters were on hand and the service was professional and friendly. Everyone ordered something different and all the food arrived at the same time.

Unfortunately, no. There was a fire there several years ago and they redid the place to be more modern.
