What I ordered: I ordered one of the daily specials: grilled turkey with Muenster and tomato, with a side of potato salad. It was very good! The rye bread they used was light and grilled perfectly.  The potato salad had a nice sweet hint to it…with onion and mustard too.


My companion ordered a cheeseburger and thought it was pretty good.  The fries were crispy and were plentiful.


Service: Friendly and fast.  Our server boasted about everything on the menu and stated that she had worked their 20 years! Senior citizens also receive 10% of their bill.
Overall Impression: Fast, friendly and inexpensive! I'd like to get my hands on a breakfast menu and try it out.  Not sure why this place isn't open for dinner?

  1. Had a bacon cheeseburger with fries. The special was a cheeseburger with fries. When the food was served, the bueger was fresh and hot, bacon was hard to chew. Don’t know how old the fries were but they were tough and dried out. Usually the food is good, not so today. Very disappointed.

  2. The cod is always fresh and light. You can’t be the prices or service. I LOVE IT!
