Eaten breakfast a couple of times and always have to wait for coffee. Kind of a pet peeve of mine. Also noticed some of the waitress buttering the toast without gloves. All in all, nice comfortable, reasonable prices and will still come back.

Nice Diner with a great selection of 50's type menu items. They also have a limited senior menu. Not as clean as I would like to see, a little elbow grease would get things back in shape real well.

My family and I had dinner here recently and were very disappointed. Burgers were not good and my daughters burger looked way to pink inside when ordered well done. Mine was cooked but not very good. Milk shakes, chicken wings and deep fried pickles were...More

A diner style dinner. I've always used meatloaf as the test of any diner. They did it right; nicely seasoned, but not too many onions. It was good. The staff changed their menu from a dinner to a meatloaf sandwich with fresh, steaming hot vegetables....More
