We just left this restaurant after waiting for over 20 minutes just to get a glass of water. The server said he would be back but never returned. We saw him taking orders around us but never ours. The straw that broke the camels back was when the hostess told him we where waiting and he gave her a sideway.... More

This place has the best pancakes. I service is always good and the food is great as well. My daughter tried the oumpkin pancakes, they were topped with pecans, cinnamon and whipped cream. When I tell you they were delicious, you must simply try them. If you're in the area, you have to stop in for breakfast!!

We have been going to this restaurant for years. We know the owners as our son use to play baseball with their son and their kindness and hospitality are transcended through their employees. Our favorites are the pancakes, quiche and the omelets. You would be hard pressed to find a fluffier and tastier omelet. My personal favorite is the spinach... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Portions are HUGE so although the prices are high, you can save by sharing plates. The oven baked omelets are amazing. I had never eaten such fluffy and steaming hot eggs before. Pancakes are perfect. Our family makes buttermilk pancakes from scratch and these taste just like them.

I got the oven pancakes and my wife got eggs and potatoes. The oven pancakes are worth visiting again for, but the other stuff (potatoes, eggs, coffee) were very average. The service was all right, but not great.
