This mirror is reported to show faces. It shows the signs of age with discoloration and imperfections. Many of these could appear to be faces. This does not mean the experiences of the patrons are false. It does mean we cannot conclude it is haunted for we did not experience it. Matrixing (seeing faces in patterns) is common with most people. It is very easy to conjure a face out of mist, dust or mirror imperfections.

The front dining room booth number 22 is the site of a reported haunting. Many have photographed this table and have discovered images of babies, faces, etc on the table top or on table contents. There are pennies glued to the table with a heavy varnish over the top. This does a number on photos with all the reflections and anomalies that occur when a flash illuminates it. Also, the table contents reflect the flash as well. The back wall is of wood which is naturally discolored in places. This appears as spirit faces in photos as well. It is unlikely photos taken here are actually paranormal in nature. There is too much interference for there to be any conclusive evidence drawn.

Did the  busboy get shut in the meat locker by a ghost? We doubt it. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen that way. It DOES mean that it is very easy to get locked in there. The door lever, when lifted, often hovers straight up. If you pull the door shut behind you, it will fall into place and lock you in handily.
