Welcome to the Hard Luck Cafe!

We are a vintage 1950's style roadside diner, focused on bringing you the highest quality food and service in the area.  We opened in 2010, but our family has been in the restaurant business for 108 years!

We're best known for our Big Bopper Burger and the best onion rings around, but we have a big menu that will be sure to please everyone at your table.

The restaurant business is not just a business to us, it is a time honored family tradition.

We are privileged to have you as our guest and look forward to serving you!



We offer customized catering options for a variety of events from office meetings and parties to weddings.  Call the Hard Luck Cafe today to schedule an appointment to discuss your event and let us develop a customized menu that is sure to impress your guests!
