There would be no reason to give this restaurant anything less than 5 Stars. Good home cooked food served promptly and courteously. A friendly dinner and a pleasure to visit !

Very popular place, judging by the lines on a Sunday morning. When we were finally seated & served, I understand why! Great variety, food was delicious, massive servings! Coffee was pretty good too! We enjoyed the trivia boxes on the tables. Staff were super-friendly. Will definitely visit next time we're in town! Oh, and thanks for the "Saint Dave's Virgin"... More

Five of us stopped in for breakfast after Church on Sunday. We were warmly greeted, and seated in Dave's "new" establishment.... it's spacious, and bright. The Breakfast Specials are a sure-fire success, and I enjoyed mine tremendously. Others at our table loved their breakfasts, too. Our Server was Karina, and she was friendly, fast, and helpful, and was super-good at... More

Thank you Dave and Mariska for offering your family restaurant for our cousins, aunts and uncles lunches. Fourteen of us gathered in October, on a busy Saturday, for lunch. It did not rattle your staff at all, and we were allowed lots of time to visit, our food was excellent, and the waitresses very attentive, making sure we had lots... More

Have visited a few times now since they opened the new place and is a consistent breakfast winner. Almost like home made breakfast. Sometimes the wait can get annoying but usually worth it. I usually have bacon, eggs, and home fries at this place. I'd love sausages but don't like either of the two options they offer. They say famous... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and both your positive and construtive comments. Sorry to hear that neither the Farmers sausage or the breakfast links are to your liking. Since opening 8 years ago we have tried various brands and the ones we currently offer seem to please most folks. As for the "Famous" Hash, we are... More

Went here for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. There were many vehicles outside at noon but the diner is very large inside. We were approached shortly after sitting down and our food came in a timely manner during this busy time. We all enjoyed our food. Would not hesitate to go again and have already recommended it...

Once you get past the lineup, staff are quick to get you something to drink and take your order. The kitchen is a bit slow but considering the number of patrons it is no surprise. The food is excellent!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, and your compliments. You are bang on when you say it is the number of patrons that slows the food down some times. We pride ourselves on running a very efficient kitchen which, on a busy Sunday for example, will put out one made to order meal every 55... More
