We've been coming to Larry's occasionally for many years. The last few visits were not as good as it used to be, but still decent. Today's lunch, however, was the last straw. We should have taken the hint when we walked in a little after 1:00 and there were only two other tables seated in the whole restaurant. Our regular... More

We had the walleye. It was delicious. Good price and generous portion. The service was good and even had a nice visit with the proprietor, Gus. We'll be back.

A restaurant that is fast, friendly, has generous portion sizes that I am not afraid to take our 3 children to. Our kids love the pancakes, I like the eggs & hashbrowns, and my husband loves the gyro skillet. Quick seating and service, crayon placemats make the the wait go quickly. We *always* take home left overs. Not an exotic... More

We have always had good meals at Larry's Diner. The prices are reasonable and portions are good size. You will not be hungry when you leave Larrys. Homemade soups are great.

Took a chance on this place this morning for breakfast. We gambled, with its higher-rated breakfast rival across the street (Southern Belle). We sat outside and received great service. Our eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, ham and toast were all...excellent. The hashbrowns and bacon/ham were exceptional. Coffee was solid. Plenty of choices on the menu. Our breakfast place is Jam-n-Jelly (Woodridge) -... More

The breakfast we had was very good and there was a lot of food. But the first thing you notice when you walk in is the place really needs a good cleaning. The chairs and booths were sticky and menus felt and looked disgusting. It always makes me wonder when the first things I touch in a restaurant (booth, chairs,... More
