My wife and I have been here many times because of how close it is. If you don't feel like garbage fast food then this is a great alternative. The food isnt going to wow you but it is fresh. Its the basics done right. I would recommend breakfast as they do it fast and well. For lunch they have a great half sandwich and soup deal. The best things I have gotten there are the Cream of crab soup and the macaroni salad. The service for the most part is excellent.

Home style food and quaint atmosphere. Great place to grab lunch with the in-laws. It was awesome until I found a dead fly in my food, then moved the curtain off the table in our booth and saw a row of ants. I'll never return after that. It's a shame the food hygiene is so lacking; the place has a lot of potential.

Have driven past the place for years, and decided to have breakfast with my daughter. The food was not very good. The biscuits and gravy tasted like a mouthful of flour, and the French toast my daughter ordered was covered with melted butter which saturated the French toast. The omelette was paper thin, eggs dry, and the sausage was not at all appetizing. The grapefruit juice was all foam in a plastic cup, and my daughter didn't drink it. The waitress didn't offer any syrup for the French toast, and I had to get up to ask her for ice water, syrup, and a coffee refill. Using a card to pay, you can't add a tip on the card. Strange place. We won't be back.

Food was affordable. Dining area was very warm, we were damp with sweat by the time we left. The food was mediocre--for instance they used processed cheese squares for tge omelettes--but that's understandable given the prices are very low.Worst though was the terrible service. We had to get up and request drink refills. Even then the waitress took her time. At no point during our stay did the waitress come to the table to ask if we wanted refills or anything to go with our meals. She stopped once after we went up to get her and once to drop the food off. That's it. If you're looking for cheap food and service, they've got it. We'll be going elsewhere though.

We have eaten here a few times in as many months. My opinion is that they should stick to breakfast. Today I had to ask the waitress to warm my food ~ it wasn't hot at all. Stuffing is Stove Top. Veggies are canned. Turkey gravy was YELLOW. Oh, and if you weigh more than 200 lbs, the bathroom is a tight fit.

Outstanding service and delicious food on 9/7/2018. So personal (and informative about tree & area) that we told Callie (waitress), that if possible we would return on our trip back home to NC. Two days later, 9-9-2018; the weather was terrible, the parking lot packed. Despite being crowded, our service by Ronnie, was personal, friendly, efficient etc. again, the food was just what weary travelers needed. So good, we took with us more Md. chowder and several pieces of cake. After many more hours of driving in awful weather, body & soul were restored by these items once home. Thank you for such a nice experience.

We were starving. Having made a failed attempt at a different restaurant, we pulled off the road when we saw the sign. Our lunch party loved it! Hamburger, grilled ham and cheese, popcorn shrimp basket, grilled chicken sandwich, onion rings, and mozzarella cheese sticks was all REALLY good. I recommend it if ever you are driving by.

Driven by it hundreds of times and stopped for the first time today. My family of 4 enjoyed a variety of food for lunch. High marks all around. The bacon cheeseburger was awesome and the fries are gigantic - fresh-cut in-house We ate outside due to COVID restrictions, but will return again

I ordered a chicken sandwich. which one would think would come with I don't know... lettuce, tomatoes, some kind of sauce. No sir, I got chicken and a bun.No complaints on our waiter.It did kind of seemed that the kitchen looked like a high school hangout spot. That or maybe I'm just getting old and everyone looks younger.

A great Mom and Pop place which I can’t pass without getting one of their homemade milk shakes! It has real ice cream, milk and real fruit/vanilla. It was named for the huge oak tree in their front yard which died long ago - too bad. But the place has its charm - family style.

I've been back to the area for 7 years and I decide to give this place a try because my neighbor told me how great it was. Well it wasn't for me. The food was just okay. The waitress acted like she could not be bothered with me or my friend and when she refilled my coffee upon my request it was all sloppy and spilled it everywhere and I felt like I had to beg to get a water. For some reason she acted like she was through with us. I don't know why we were nice polite and minded our own business. I'll stick to Nottingham INN from now on.

I would have liked to eat here but the sign upon entering informed, "we can no longer accept tips on credit card" which means you can eat on credit but not pay your waitress on the same system. They don't want to pay out their employees and have to pay for it on the credit system. A restaurant that can't afford to pay their staff should not be open.There were three of us and we didn't have enough cash to feel we could tip staff 20% as is custom. Please, join us in 2019.

Good little (very) local resturant. Country style menu. Hot beef sandwiches are good, but a little too salty. Sides could be bigger.

Stopped on a road trip to the dam. Great looking homemade plates. Had everything from country breakfasts with everything to burgers to wraps to dinner platters. They have dinner specials daily. Everything was incredibly tasty. Home made fries were yummy. Would definitely recommend.

It's a cute, very small, mom and pop place. It has about a dozen tables. I had the swiss, mushroom, onion burger. The burger was very good, the fries, not so much. They were very soggy. The service was excellent. Our waitress was very polite and pleasant. My son got the chicken parm platter and it was a huge amount of food. I would come here again to try something else.

Always enjoy stopping in here. All of the food is homemade and fresh! Great and friendly waitresses. They have the best sausage gravy and biscuits I've ever had anywhere and their dinner portions are huge! I've eaten here for every meal (at least 4-5 times) and never had a bad experience at all. Prices are also very reasonable! A hidden gem in Cecil County if you're near the Rising Sun, Conowingo area. Absolutely stop in and you'll see what I mean!
