Reasonably priced food. Their pancakes are excellent. They have changed up their bacon though and it looks and tastes like microwave bacon. Their bread basket is a great idea but it's hard and old. They say delivered fresh everyday by the bakery but it's old. Like knock on the wood old. Please change your bakery. I had a hot dog there and they put it in a Vienna style bun not hotdog bun and again. Really old dry bread. The place could use a facelift. Make sure the air vents above your head are screwed in. I don't mean to be so negative because the food is good. But a couple of changes and a facelift would boost customers. Updated menu to address healthier eating and younger patrons should help too.

Though the staff is very friendly, this place is slipping. From the lengthy menu full of choices, I chose an open face turkey sandwich. Though it had melted cheese, it was dry and tasteless. The dining room is clean and OK. The bathrooms are worn, stalls rusty and stinky. But folks don't go here for the bathroom. I think folks enjoy breakfast better here.

Went there for dinner. Maybe breakfast is better. How does this place stick around? The food is terrible, but it always has customers. Waitress was rude and abrupt. Food was dry and tasteless.

Stopped in to have breakfast. This place is another fine breakfast restaurant in Grayslake. The food is always good. Lots of choices on the menu and everything is good.

I have been here for breakfast & supper or dinner, whatever you prefer. Breakfast is as good as any other good restaurant. For supper I ordered the Broasted chicken & it is very good. I have not heard anyone complain about their meal.
