So after waiting over 7 mins to even be asked for how many, we finally were approached then told a man by himself who came in after us was going to get seated first. Once at a table we waited for over 10 mins without even being asked what we'd like to drink my husband, mother and myself decided to... More

Now that the name and owners have changed so has the service. They can never get our order right and the server we always get is rude. Our family always comes here but after our last few visits this one is our last.

The name has changed. The property has been updated. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Try the Chicken and Waffles breakfast!

Went to Abc for brunch this morning and found out that 3 days ago they became a Ricky's. Didn't matter. Same friendly staff, same reasonable prices and same good quality food. Four of us enjoyed entrees off the breakfast menu and were quite satisfied. Will return. Alex, our server, was a delight.

Nice menu, not really cheap, we went for breakfast. We had the worst service on our week long trip at this restaurant. The waitress was obviously overwhelmed, but she got no help. Another waitress came by and offered no help, the manager came by and offered no help and both could tell we had been there WAY too long. The... More

Had dinner here and the food was your basic coffee shop menu and quality. Had daily wine or beer specials that were a good value. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Don't know why another reviewer thinks this is home cooking. It is packaged food. Packaged potatoes, gravy, vegetables, meat. It is not really difficult to open a package dump it in water and boil it a bit, but our vegetables were mush and tasteless. The powdered mashed potatoes and over salted gravy was just ok. The meat was fine. We... More

We arrived on a Thursday evening. It was quiet, only two tables with patrons. We were seated right away and given menus. No one came to take our order. After 15 minutes, we flagged down a waitress. She said we weren't in her section. It seems we weren't in anyone's section. When our order was taken, two items were missed.... More

I liked this restaurant so much I ate there twice! The food was cooked to perfection. The portions are huge and easily split between two people or saved for a second meal.

They ask you for your drink order as you're sitting down so you don't really have time to read the menu for drinks and when they deliver the bill the bring the machine so you don't really have time to review the bill for accuracy although as it turns out there were no problems. The food is reasonably priced but... More
