This place looked amazing and the story of how long it has been in the area was cool. The food was okay and the waitstaff was really not all that great. Not a place I'd return to unless there were no other alternatives. The service...More

I enjoyed the chicken-fried steak and mashed potatoes with white gravy. The nice, big steak was good, with no gristle - I ate every bite. The coating was crispy and spiced just right. A very tasty white gravy covered both steak and mashed potatoes, with...More

Our portions were huge and the menu offerings covered both Breakfast and Lunch-Dinner items that could be ordered anytime. We really liked the nostalgic decor in the area of the restaurant in which we were seated.

The decor is so Art Deco 50’s Diner. It felt neat to be in that environment. The server had a wonderful manner and customer service attitude. The pricing was reasonable. The food was just okay though.More
