Great for kids as it is 1 of 2 places in town to have a kids menu. Only issue but it just may be my issue is the seating, very noisy chairs when getting out from the table also the chairs are not that comfortable but the service is great

The menu is quite wide, perhaps they could cut it down a bit and concentrate on a smaller menu to increase quality. Service slow but friendly. Everything seemed frozen and average quality. Used to be much better than this. Think they have made cut backs to increase profits, shame as we used to like it here.

Great burgers and huge portions (never thought I'd say it but perhaps too many fries)... but just what you'd expect from an American Style Diner!!

Exactly what you want from an American diner. I've been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it never disappoints. I recommend the milkshakes!

Took my daughter here for a quick mid-shopping spree lunch. She loved the fun decor & atmosphere & the food was hot, tasty & plentiful.
