This was by far one of the best greasy spoon diners that I have been to in years. The food was amazing, service impeccable. We all had a burger and fries. We will be back in the morning to try out their breakfast.

Found this establishment to be nothing special. Service was good but food was comparable to a Denny's.

Merry Ann's is convenient to the campus, especially if you are staying at the I Hotel. We had breakfast there and the homemade corned beef hash was some of the best I have had. Eggs were done as I ordered. Service was prompt and friendly.

This diner looked like it was going to be a DIVE!!! While it could use xome modernization, it would take away the charm!! The breakfast we had was great and the coffee kept coming!!!

we have a fast and good and cheap breakfast. I had to ask the lady several times for a coffee refill . one cup of coffee on a Saturday am does not cut it. Yes I would go back because I know what I get.
