    Used to love this place. Won't be going back due to argumentative owner after bad food and service experience.

    Friendly service, aggressively mediocre food, and decor straight from your crazy aunt's country kitchen.

    I thought service was a little amateur but by no means were servers rude or unfriendly. Portions are generous! Kids' chicken strips with fries was adult sized!

    Eric D is a moron or obese, big portions, homestyle diner. Bloody Marys and crab Benedict are awesome.

    They have many vegetarian friendly breakfast options. Their bloody Mary is fantastic, as are their crepes. Prepare for a long wait on weekend mornings though!
