First and foremost..everything is made from scratch. Second..they serve classic diner food and the portions are huge. . You definitely will... More

The food was good but it was very crowded and much to warm in the establishment. Staff and owners seemed very friendly.

Great food with huge portions. Saw a lot of customers leaving with storage containers. If you don't have a huge apatite, you may want to consider sharing. Ask the server how large the portion is for your order. I ordered the pork schnitzel with mushroom gravy which came with 2 large pieces of breaded pork between mashed potatoes. I could... More

Great service, great food and lots of it. The menu had a good variety and some items I have never seen before, such as a shepards pie burger. You won't leave hungry! The milk shakes are fantastic as well. Love the old black and white photographs of the city lining the wall.

Quaint fun diner. Small 50's style diner. Great food with a twist. Busy at peak hours. Mac & cheese is amazing. Burgers are off the hook. Diner dog is not what you would expect, but soooo worth it.

Where to start?!?! From the wonderful staff, the caring owners, the fun "Diner" atmosphere to the AMAZING food....this place is fabulous! It has been filmed on "You Gotta Eat Here" but I don't want to say much more because if too many people dine here then I won't get a seat! Ha! Give it a try. You won't regret it!!!
