Haven't been here since the by-pass went in and we're relly glad we stopped back in. Food was great. Sitting at the counter is an experience watching the meals come together. Good service as well.

Went there for lunch and really enjoyed it. Chicken dinner and pumpkin pie, all the coffee you want - very good. Very nice waitress too. Obviously a place that has a lot of regulars, by which I mean customers as opposed to Ex-lax users 😊
