I gave this restaurant only one star when I reviewed it a few years ago. But I offered a list of suggestions to improve it. Some of them have been taken to heart. It has moved from one to three stars as the result of our visit there in April 2017. Were I dining alone, I would have given it... More

Fast , friendly service good food, clean bathrooms. Ordered the daily sandwich & soup special for $4.99. We got a bowl, not a cup, of flavorful chicken dumpling soup and a full sized tuna sandwich, also good.

I always enjoy this restaurant when I visit my mom in Wisconsin. Stick with the basic dishes and enjoy a piece of pie. Friendly servers and hosts. I especially like the fish, reuben, and chicken.

The food selection was vast, and tasted great. The prices were very reasonable, and the waitresses were very friendly. It is definitely a family place to eat.

Large servings, great service! Easy to find and access. Recommend the pecan waffle or any of the skillets. Good kid selection.
