Not friendly if your not a regular. Each waitress has to many tables, takes to long to get service. If they even come back around.

Very much a local's retreat. Food is okay, service is interesting---because the buffet is central to the whole experience. Nice place to visit.

Stopped here on our way through to Shelby. What an amazing place this is. Adorned with collectables and things to browse at. Food was wholesome and delicious. It's one of those original style diners that offer great food and service. Prices were reasonable also.

Great food!, Great Staff! Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great little family restaurant. You can find something from the menu for everyone in your party. Everything is cooked fresh daily in their kitchen.

Won't be back, probably because I am not a fan of run-of-the-mill restaurants with little variety on the menu.

Best little sausage house in Shelby. We go there for breakfasts. The pancakes are something special.. I still can't figure out the secret ingredient but I want more.

Ate here for breakfast this weekend while visiting relatives. Service was fast and friendly in a very large dining room (multiple rooms actually) with walls filled with country stuff...think Cracker Barrel on steroids. Breakfast options were great, and even included the local favorite - liver...More
