Very pleasant spot to eat. Excellent omelette (only thing we tried). Good coffee. Nice waitstaff and very hospitable owner. Sat outside, only two tables, overlooking a small mountain across from town, but inside of restaurant is welcoming and cheerful. Overall, very enjoyable.

This is a family owned Dairy Queen. When you go you get to see almost all they same faces every time. They take the time to make your order the right way everything is fresh and most locals will drive to this Dairy Queen even if one is closer to them because they do their jobs so well.

I needed a last minute Anniv date, so I searched restaurants near us, this looked good. Well it wasnt good, IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!! Inside & outside looks exactly how I would make it. Seated right away. The bread served 1st is my favorite kind, really! Beers were cold in frosted glasses. Salad was a piece of art, fantastic. I got fish & chips (I'm simple) but even that was great, prepared perfectly & the fish was very fresh tasting. My wife really enjoyed her meal as well, chicken ravioli. I think we counted 6 different workers came to our table offering anything we needed, taking dishes, & every one of them was super polite. (where else do you get that service?) John T was our main server, he was great, brought check, & took card immediately. Desserts looked great, but we were overfull. We went into the lounge to check out the rest of the beautiful place (staircase is gorgeous)(even the bathrooms are cool), & there we met Mgr Amy. Amy took the time to greet us, & tell us the story of the place & the owner. We would love to meet the owner sometime to hear her story as well, as she obviously has GREAT vision in this business. We will definitely be back, & this just may be our new Anniversary spot. If this place was in Murrysville, it would be packed nonstop, it really is that cool. You just have to look around at everything there. It looks like it should be in Nemacolin. great job everyone, well done.

Seriously the best meal you'll have anywhere in the area, the burger and meatball sandwich are HUGE and are the best I've had, almost everything is homemade in house or a local shop. I've been coming here for years and have yet to have a bad meal or leave hungry......If you lay off the alcoholic drinks your bill will be reasonable but the drinks you get are stiff to say the least......

We met friends here last week for dinner. We live an hour apart, so it was mid-point for us. We had salads, burgers and sandwiches..all were excellent. Our server was a doll who went out of his way to make us feel welcome! It was a great dining experience and we will return!!

I questioned an item on the bill and the owner said if I didn't like it I should go eat someplace else! What? I have eaten there for years. My husband has breakfast there almost daily! We have been faithful patrons and that's how I am treated? He flung a few more insults at me as I walked out the door. Now I understand why all the waitresses have quit. He has new wait staff that have not been trained well and service was lacking. The food has always been good so I will miss going there, but he will never get another dime from me.
