Service was slow. Had to ask for check and coffee several times before we actually got them. They were not very busy when we were there so that was not a reason for poor service.

Loved the atmosphere and the food was not bad. We had breakfast. Good size portions. Not the biggest dining area, but we did not have a problem getting a seat.

We waited forever for breakfast. The omlets were just ok, not great. Waiting staff could be seen eating behind the grill and were not attentive.

This place is in front of a hotel that caters to Train Crews - they swap and flip flop between Pine Bluff AR and Rockford IL (?) - This Diner is very tailored to appeal to them. Simple good food. Friendly staff that caters to regulars. They food is nothing special, but it is good.

Food was just OK. Service was not right. A lot of Food on the floor where your feet are. Just not a well managed place. Cute outside, that is why we went. But turn away.

The food was excellent and the price was very reasonable. I was was really surprised at the quantity of food that you were given. He waitress was slow to come and wait on me at first. But the food was worth the wait. I would highly recommend it.

Setting is real old school. Peaceful and enjoyable. Worth it just to experience the atmosphere of the restraunt. Food wasn't bad, prices good. Very fun.

This restaurant had a nice décor but that's about it. The waitress was very nice and she tried but she was the only waitress there and she was also ringing out customers at the register. The cook appeared to me like he really didn't care whether he was there or not. It took at least 1/2 hour to get our... More
