I've been going here for 20 years off and on. It's just a good old Country Place. With good old country food. Everybody is very friendly, the customers and the people that work there.

Good basic food served hot and with a smile from the great wait staff. This review is about the dinner I had, but they are great for a country breakfast.

Yes. It was Jerry's Restaurant from 12-7-1966 until 5-11-1984 at which time it became Midland Restaurant. Mercy and Jerry St. Clair bought it September 6, 1984 and are still the owners.
