when it comes to good food, good prices, locally owned/operated ... this is the place. I've always had the best meals here. Don't let the outside fool you. It may be located in an old house, but the owners care about their food and their customers. They can be very busy during lunch so plan on waiting for a table. And their limited hours means no dinner service, but that's part of the appeal ... the owners are here when the place is open and they don't run it into the ground trying to cater to evening eaters. Come for breakfast: it can't be beat. My personal favorite is the Filet Mignon Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs. Going for lunch? Try the Yacht Club sandwich. They don't call this place Word of Mouth for nothing.

Food was good however the portions are to large, we hate seeing food wasted. Smaller menu options would be nice. If you are seated upstarts seems you are forgotten....

No 5star today . Greasy potatoes and Way Too Much breading on steak! Another guest commented on how much breading was on the steak...made a good meal only so so..

If you are looking for the best breakfast of your life, go here! I found this based on other reviews and so happy I did. I can't stop talking about it, and we don't even live in this city! I can't wait to go back. The breakfast burritos...OH EM GEE!
They brought us a free cinnamon roll pancake which my husband couldn't shovel in his mouth fast enough.
Plates are big enough to share if you are willing. 5 stars!
