One of my wife's fish filets was not cooked. Waiter did not offer to replace. He seemed liked he was new to the profession. Food was ok. I get it. It's a diner. Might try it again for breakfast but overall not good.

All food was very good except Macaroni and Cheese very disappointed in the lack of flavor from a simple dish. Service was great although having the bar in the center front of a restaurant makes for noisy dining that could be a drawback for some. I will be going back again

Kitchen overcooked the prime rib and it was nearly uneatable. However, Karen, the owner, did all she could to help us. We were quite satisfied with her efforts We'll be back, but this was a bad one.

Other than a small mix up of not checking us in for our reservation the visit was good. Portion were nice and quality good. I do believe we would return and perhaps try lunch or dinner.
Service was good and food came out in an acceptable amount of time.

We had OpenTable reservations for 6pm on New Years Eve. It was a special prime rib 3 course dinner. The salad was mediocre - dry leafy lettuce, I prefer romaine/ice berg. They brought more dressing so I could get it down. The prime rib was excellent, thick 3/4-1" slice of medium rare - as requested. The brussell sprouts were also exceptional. Dessert was tiramisu and I've had better as it seemed really sweet and lacked the cocoa/coffee taste. It was ok. Overall the place was not busy, the food particularly the prime rib was sensational. Service was very attentive. We enjoyed our meal and I would go back.

Went for New Year’s Eve dinner, had the prime rib special. Salad and main course came out within a minute of each other. Prime rib was not warm at all, had to send it back to get it not room temp. Service was fine, just the food was not up to expectations.

Disappointing. We had an 11 AM reservation for an outside table. When we arrived the only table left was outside the tent, with no shade. After we ordered brunch, it took almost an hour to get our food. My Gouda omelet was lukewarm. I could see slices of cheese that had never melted. The side of green beans was good, though. The handicap accessibility was not easy.

Service was really good, but the food left much to be desired. $5 burger Monday is not worth it - you can tell it’s a from a frozen patty, the bun was stale, and the potato salad is definitely not homemade (maybe from a supermarket like Costco?). Go somewhere else if you want decent food.
