Freeport has a number of family restaurants and most of them are average or above in quality. And most are cheaper than nearby Rockford prices. I stopped in at 10 for a late breakfast and noticed the large number of breakfast items on the menu...more than most family restaurants provide. Since it was nearly lunch, I ordered a giant hamburger... More

Waited a very long time...there was poor service, bad coffee, and flavorless food. My mother-in-law had cold French toast (as if it was kept in the refrigerator), my husband's pancakes were tasteless, my omelet was rubbery and tasted bad.

Only open for breakfast & lunch. Chairs aren't the most comfortable I've sat in. Great choice of eggs selections, go with their sausage in stead of the bacon.

The menu is typical family restaurant fare. I had a BLT on one visit, eggs & hash browns the other. The very low prices are what sets them apart. Service is good, the servers are quite friendly and try their best.

Freeport offers lots of diner options like this. Good breakfast food and pies. I have had dinner/lunch here a few times have thought the food was average. Prices are fair.

They know me but serve me anyway, great people! Menu simple but wholesome and fairly priced. Servers treat you like family out of sincerity, not duty.

This place has been there almost 25 years. Always been a great place for a super piece of pie and a good cup of coffee. The food is a bit above average, and the place is clean. Service was good, and they seem to keep wait staff.
