We decided to try this place for breakfast and we were so glad we did . The country fried steak topped with thick country gravy was delicious and my eggs were cooked perfectly. My husband had the Hefty Pine breakfast and he found it indeed...More

The Knotty Pine really is pretty good. A warm country/small town atmosphere with vintage 1960's style diner decor in the front and 1970's home made booths in the back bar room area (yes, you can get food served in the bar area). Have a beer...More

Walking into the Knotty Pine is like going through a timewarp back to the 60's! In fact I would think the decor has never been updated since then (including the dusty, faded wreath above the door!) Pine everywhere, of course, as you'd expect from the...More

A fine place, great food, friendly, professional and polite staff (in the restaurant and the back/bar)! Very reasonably price (some might call it inexpensive)! GO, GO NOW! Enjoy!
