Anyone tried the new Country Kitchen restaurant where the Mill Creek Manor Tea Room was? Would be nice to have some good food on that end of town

(VERY) late breakfast today at CK - "Cordon Bleu Skillet" - Bacon, hash browns, scrambled eggs, diced ham, crispy chicken tenders, and Swiss Cheese hiding under a very tasty hollandaise sauce for around $12. Enough for two people to split - add toast, fruit, or pancakes on the side. Senior discount of 10% is DOUBLED on Tuesday to 20%.
Breakfast is available ALL day until closing. Unlimited coffee (pot left on the table).
We'll go back and try other items on the menu. Nothing exotic, but potentially several notches above Denny's.
The price you pay though is having to listen to Country-Western music.

We were given the lowdown on the history of Mill Creek Manor Tea Room (and its predecessors) over the years. We've been driving by there for over 30 years and never suspected what was available inside! BBL does have some interesting history indeed.

We tried it this week. We had the Cordon Blue skillet also, delicious! The fried Pickles were the best I have ever had! Give it a try!

Upon returning to CK, we found that the "Corporate" menu on the Web shows crepes, but BBL franchise is not yet serving these - soon we are promised. Lunch was a Reuben and their popular seasoned french fries. Reuben not quite up to Maggio's, but CK is a much shorter drive for us - like 3 minutes.
Join the CK e-club for 15% discount, free birthday meal, etc.

No Country/Western music today - I don't know if they're just playing CD's or choosing a Music Channel for the day.

Thanks for the reviews everyone. I never visited the Tea Room but I will definitely give Country Kitchen a try!

Based on Hank's recommendation, I gave CK a try several months ago. I'm not a foodie so my perspective is where to get a decent meal at a reasonable price with good service. After that, throw in some ambiance. My reference restaurant for comparison is Teddy Bear.

The food at CK was okay and the price was about the same as TB. The waitress was friendly and i got a chance to chat with the owner when I checked out. They were hoping for a lot of business this winter to get over the hump and I hope that's worked out for them. All in all, it's a nice place to grab a bite and worth a visit.

We have dogs, so getting a cat is off the board. Last night was crazy with 60-80 (maybe 20 for each of the 5 prior nights). The dust buster supplements the soap water trap. (Also good for catching flies & mosquitos too!)

Mary if you save me some I'll take them off your hands!
My cat loves to hunt them down as I have none here.

Moths - I am also tired of the moths! No cats, so that doesn't help me. I have been using essential oils. Young Living Cedarwood and Orange. Several drops of each in a diffuser. They don't like the smell, but it is a mix of cedar and citrus and smells pleasant. Also, DoTerra Terra Shield has helped (natural bug repellent). Good Luck!

My cat loves them, gobbles them up! But ive only seen maybe 8 moths in the past month. Weird!!

sned We have cats. They love them for a moment or two. Then it becomes CAT CACK HEAVEN! (indoor cats)

Mc toddy, I was told not a darn thing we can do by professionals today. No bird seed lamps and soapy water. Start a fire in the fireplace my own circumstances. We have pets so no bombs. My vacuum is about to die but so are the moths! I might be considered a dish soap hoarder. Stay Strong!

I'm sick and tired of the moths rioting in my house every night for the past 3 weeks!!! (Even with the soapy water bucket...) Well, they haven't looted me, so maybe I should count my blessings

Jun 01 : 05:29pm
It’s not riots up here I’m worried about, it’s the supply chain that’s already broken I’m more concerned about.

Jun 01 : 05:25pm
I don't think we should worry about riots happening here in the mountains.
