Good service, good food and nice atmosphere. We always enjoy our visits to Jackson and eat at least one meal here per visit. They are located right next to the AmericInn so the location is great for us. Good daily specials.

Standard Perkins like food, but a notch or two below Perkins quality, which isn't saying much. Had the pancakes, eggs, bacon breakfast meal. Noting terribly special. Bacon not crispy, hard to chew and was more like beef jerky. Not good. The eggs were small, but...More
