    Best sausage gravy we have had at a restaurant yet. Also a very delicious burger. Strong coffee, excellent service and low wait time. Definitely will be back.

    Very friendly staff, great music selection at the jukebox, and a very expansive menu. The crabcakes and tartar sauce are amazing!!

    Summer citrus salad is one of the best I've gas. Always plenty of mango and strawberry left toward the end.

    The menu is so diverse and creative. And the workers are like a well oiled machine. And yes, the hype about uncle vinny is true. Such a gentleman.

    Waffle with pork sausage and a chocolate milkshake no whip cream. French fries are good too.

    Tried the new quinoa coconut pancakes... too much coconut, don't hold together very well. Won't order those again.

    "Bison huevos rancheros" are horrible. One fried egg and some dry ground up bison meat. Blech. Burgers, steaks, even the meatloaf is better.I miss the greasy spoon menu, however.Too much organic junk.

    I would skip this place and just go to the grocery store. I tried ordering an omelet with broccoli and they were going to charge me just to cut it. Wtf?? PASS. I went to Cheesecake factory instead.

    OK experience. Food was fine - nothing overly special and nothing overly terrible. Veggies were way over-seasoned, but that could have been a one-time thing. Neutella and Banana shake was good.
