There are two disabled parking spaces directly in front of the restaurant, each with loading zones and ramps at the end. The double doors open outward for plenty of access and space but inside those doors is a single door that might take some maneuvering to enter.

There is PLENTY of space inside with many options for seating. There are little tables for two, booths for four, tables for four, and a few plush recliners. Getting to the counter is easy with all the space between seating areas. And the counters have low areas for ordering from a wheelchair.

They give you a vibrating coaster with lights on it to let you know when your order is ready but I'm sure they would be happy to bring your order to you if you requested. There are fairly accessible drink stations for you to get your own drinks but again I'm sure they would be happy to assist if wheeling yourself around while trying to carry a drink is not ideal.

The restroom door is the standard heavy tension door that might be difficult to open. Inside the restroom is a large accessible stall with two handrails and a very wide door with a handle on it and it opens into the stall. The sink and paper towel dispenser are reachable but the soap dispenser is high and in the corner behind the sink.

Overall, this restaurant is spacious and navigable and should provide a reasonably pleasant dining experience with minor inconveniences for those that may have difficulties with drink stations and heavy doors. But the staff is pleasant and helpful and should make up for small setbacks. Plus they have bacon.
