Stopped in for a later lunch, greeted and seated immediately. Order came quickly an was accurate. Everything was delicious- chicken sandwich, burgers, French dip, salad, and fries. Will for sure stop in again when vacationing . Love the atmosphere!

Good size salads. Decent selection of lunch items. A bit pricey but worth patronising a local restaurant.

We pulled our boat up to a dock and walked across the street. It's worth every penny. Great tasting, good portions, and quick & friendly service. We went 3 times for breakfast and once for lunch.

Holy crud is the food at this place is good. I had low expectations but I probably had one of the best belgian waffles ever. Their big cinnamon roll is indeed big and wonderful. Very, very affordable. On Sundays they have prime rib and eggs....More
