We love going out to breakfast, but dont "get" why everyone in the ville packs this place. It must be the buffet because it is not the atmosphere or service. Once when our power was out, this was the only place available. My son had...More

Delicious home cooked meals serving breakfast and lunch daily except Monday. Best Chopped Sirloin (Hamburger Steak) with onions/gravy anywhere. Everything is reasonably priced with healthy portions. Week-ends are awesome best buffet around including salt herrings. Must try, will not be disappointed!

Been here a dozen or more times. Never disappointed. Whether it's the buffet or order from the menu, breakfasts are always very good. Service is exceptionally friendly and fast. Try to get there each time I'm in Mechanicsville.

A step back in time to down home cooking in a rustic and comfortable atmosphere. All your old favorites from eggs, hash browns and BISCUITS for breakfast, to yummy sandwiches and soup for lunch. Generous portions and real home cooking. You will love it.

The breakfast buffet is outstanding! Everything you could want for $10.99, all morning and into the afternoon (Friday-Sunday)! I almost didn't write this review because I plan to go back regularly and I don't want it to get overcrowded!!

Restaurant has a good vibe with a busy brunch crowd. they have an impressive buffet. We ordered off the menu and I had an omelet, which wasn't anything special. But, there were so many people there, that they must be good, so I'll have to...More

Love visiting Mechanicsville for antique and quaint shopping and decided to try this restaurant for the fist time this past Saturday. My husband got a hamburger and I got a BLT on rye bread. Both were served with fries. There really wasn't anything spectacular about...More
