Local restaurant with large portions; traditional American home style food; meat loaf was delicious. Easy access from highway and tourist areas.

Kind of a fun place with humorous slogans and sayings posted. The food was a little better than basic diner fare and the prices are reasonable. Our server and the others as well were very nice and friendly. Not a bad place for dinner.

Very high quality food and a casual atmosphere. Good for a chuckle, too! The owners clearly care about good food!

DH's spaghetti was watery and DD's French fries were bland, but my BLT was good. Super fast service and friendly service. Would go back but stick to the sandwich menu.

There's really not much to write home about here. My dish, which was a Seafood Alfredo was very bland. I had to add quite a bit of salt to be able to get it down. My wife's Ribeye steak was a disappointing 5 out of...More
