Ramp at back but you need to know that it is there. Mostly booths but there is a table with chairs. Good local diner food. Hamburger tasty and homemade. Typical diner fare. Friendly.

Very good to get a home cooked meal. Food was good and pleasantly fast for being so busy. Our waitress was sweet, knowledgeable about the area and efficient. We will be back.
