Your bacon is great. The eggs were perfect. Wish the pancakes were smaller.

We live 5 minutes away, so is extremely handy, actually I was there twice last week, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is always delicious. This place is a gem in the desert.

Service and food were excellent. However, I was unprepared for the cold air coming from the door leading to the patio. Our server closed the door several times, however other staff kept opening it. If I return, I will dress warmly for the cool nights - or just sit outside under a heater.

Always good! We ended up sitting in the bar on a hi-top & the service was excellent! We had the sea food pie special & fried chicken. Both were great! Plus I always order the bacon & egg salad! Yum!

A creative menu that changes regularly. This night I chose shrimp and cheese grits which was terrific; just the right amount of spice and prepared perfectly. I had to choose between that and the seafood pot pie which also looked delicious. The server was attentive and the food was served at just the right time. This has become our go to place on the weekends as the food is terrific, service is excellent and prices are reasonable.

we went for the all you can eat chicken which is not advertised on menu on weds. nites for 9.99
my husband decided to eat meatballs . i gave him 3 small bites to taste my chix and i tasted his meatballs the waitress, when i asked for more said i could,nt have more chicken as we shared a dinner ... seriously this is bull crap. who isn,t allowed to try someone elses 'meal.?? was she spying on us?? never so insulted!! then she sent manager to talk to me and said he could charge me full price then my husband could have a chicken dinner .. are you for real..?? i was entitled to eat more. this isnt a buffet???its all you can eat chicken for everyone except me ridiculous.
this is sneaky and misleading as i was not getting any more chicken, out of them . people were quite condescending and rude . I wouldn't ever go there again. nor would i recommend them to any one else unless you want to be watched on what you eat and made to feel like you were stealing the food?? and 3.50 for an iced tea is outrageous cold mashed potatoes she took off my plate to reheat and they were still cold... they are not customer oriented in any way.. and the waitress seemed to get some perverse pleasure out of telling me I couldn, t get any more chicken .. she needs people skills. as does the manager.!!!! horrible experience
