In downtown Bryson City, NC, I found the food to be very good and worth the price. Had a friendly staff and good prices. A nice restaurant for a quick, inexpensive meal.

Pros: Staff was nice. Prices were reasonable. Cons: I got the bacon cheeseburger which was dry and did not have much taste. The fries are of the frozen variety. My girlfriend got the Ribeye sandwich.

If you want the standard breakfast, you will not be disappointed. Not much more to say. Everything tasted as expected. Place is a little scattered and in need of a tidying up.

Good home cooking. The service was good. Nothing fancy. A mom and pops style restaurant. Located off Main Street within walking distance of all shops.

We go for breakfast here often, and it is great. Lunch is been fine the one time we did lunch here. Not much atmosphere but rather have a nice meal and no atmosphere than a yucky meal in a beautiful setting.

The place is not fancy but the food is good diner food. My husband had their special burger and really liked it. I had their Philly chicken wrap which was also good. I upgraded my fries to onion rings for only 50 cents.
