It was a treat to find a small diner to have an excellent breakfast. I am so tired of going to franchises, especially and taking luck of the draw. Some are good -others should lose the franchise! as they do no good for the name. This place is convenient, on the beaten path, clean, welcoming, fresh good coffee and THE... More

We ended up going here twice because it was convenient but it's really nothing extra special...the usual diner fare. Omelets, pancakes, BLT's, Greek platters. All good. Service was okay. Prices were okay. Good place to go if you just need to meet people along a route.

Our server tonight was Janet, a lovely person who prided herself in accuracy and keeping the customer satisfied. A most conscientious and hard worker, she made certain that everyone at all the tables in her section had everything correctly prepared in their order. We were very impressed with her "can-do" attitude and helpful personality.

Excellent breakfast served by a friendly staff. I had a ham, cheese and mushrooms. The cheese was plentiful and the mushrooms were fresh - excellent.

Classic diner with an expansive menu and large portions. Very clean!! Driving through while heading south. I enjoy greek food and had to try gyro and moussaka. Other members of our party opted for more of the classic diner options. All comments were positive regarding taste and quantity. Really glad we chose the Parthenon.

We usually enjoy the food here. Portions are adequate and large selection for the family. Always a nice option to try the stuffed grape leaves. Great milk shakes too. Service is friendly and management appreciative.

We stopped for lunch. Impeccable diner with courteous and friendly and responsive staff. My husband's liver and bacon with two sides and a huge salad for $14 was great all around. I ordered eggs florentine and specifially asked for a medium poached egg... came with hard poached and limited hollaindaise over frozen spinach. Dry and not tasty. I told the... More
