I have had my eye on this place recently and noticed the parking lot is often busy. That is usually my trigger that I should try a place. Stopped in for lunch yesterday. I entered through the lounge door as I wanted a beer with lunch. It was a little bit of a wait before the server got to me,... More

Homemade soup was very salty, top sirloin was overcooked and tough. Was hoping the new owners would have improved the restaurant, but I was very dissatisfied.

We had the teriyaki chicken dinner and the meatloaf. The teriyaki and garlic fries were good but the meatloaf was horrible. It tasted like a Hungry Man Salisbury Steak. The waitress was super friendly but didn't have any suggestions for "What's good?" Maybe she was new. Over all a pretty standard diner, I'd stick with something like a burger or... More

This location has changed hands, and names over the years we have lived here. We were out and about on Father's Day running around and wanted to grab something to eat. We came in for breakfast and have a couple of other times. The food is pretty basic, nothing real imaginative on the menu. The service has always been good.... More

Maybe it was particularly what I ordered, but I was not impressed with the quality of the food. I had a good long wait as well.

Worst burger and fries I have had in a while - The best service I have had in a while. Unfortunately I will take good high quality food over service anytime. Funky meat in the burger kinda grey in color. Would never go back despite a super friendly and hard working waitress

This little restaurant is quite a surprise. The outside of the building is somewhat nondescript, so when you open the door and go in, you are pleasantly surprised by the cute and cozy decor. Tables and booths a all beautiful light wood log style. Little stuffed bears, frogs and other interesting items adorn the walls. Table lamps appear to be... More
