Better location, should do well. We had a nice lunch in their upstairs private room. They were able to handle our large group.

Food was okay but nothing that was really impressive for us. Location was accessible that is why we ended there.

Stopped in for lunch, and the style of the restaurant is a 50's type diner. Food was OK, a little pricey for what it was, but certainly not bad. Been around for quite a while, and recently relocated.

This place is just wonderful. Great diner food. Friendly staff and very nostalgic feeling. Prices are wonderful. Apparently, I find out after the fact, is that there is a bar upstairs. If you are looking for really good diner style food, stop by.

Good basic menu! I like the fact that the upstairs had a bar and a relaxed atmosphere. It appears as if the are working through some staffing issues. Food was decent.

It's noisy; it's busy — but you know, that's what a diner is. It's a fun place. We are dedicated to providing the best food and service anywhere. Enjoy full table service from a menu of homemade soups and salads, hotdogs, burgers, specialty sandwiches hot off the grill, daily Blue Plates (just like Mama made), frosty shakes and ice cream treats at our old-fashioned soda fountain. Hearty Southern breakfasts are served on Saturday mornings.
