We like the design of the restaurant, the coffee and its size, the quality of the food and its size, the warm and friendliness of the owner and the waiting staff. And the prices are appropriate. You deserve to have your breakfast and coffee here. 👍🎈

In what appears to be an old box car made into more of a diner/restaurant with a small deck area seating this place is fun. Good breakfasts mean you may have a bit of a wait as they don't have a lot of seating. We sat at the counter at around 9:00am. Omelets were generous and tasty. Prices were very... More

Sweet and historic dining car with a warm and inviting interior. We had delicious food with coffee and hot chocolate that was off the charts. The folks behind the counter were warm and friendly. It made for a very special lunch.

Very good eats here. Sometimes you have to wait since seating is limited but they give you a good meal. Only art breakfast here. I would recommend it.

Best breakfast we've had this year! You must have a blueberry muffin grilled. Never heard of this before (evidently it's because I'm from that other land, California:) -- totally delicious. Omelette was fabulous!! Pancakes, yum -- ask for the good maple syrup from the kitchen for a true Adirondack experience. Charming ambiance--rugged and truly upstate. The other diners were all...

Stopped for lunch with our 1 and 3 year old. Wait time was 15 mins and we got right in. We always put a rush order in when eating out as young kids can erupt at any moment, which happened. We requested our order to go instead so as to not interrupt everyone trying to enjoy their relaxing lunch. I... More

We are a 1946 Service Diner originally from Wooster, MA. This dinner was moved to Bolton Landing in 1989 to replace the old 1904 Bill Gates Dinner which was placed in the Adirondack Museum. We take pride in keeping our dinner in its early native state, and love to see people excited about our little treasure. It is a quaint, buzzing atmosphere in the summer and houses many of the locals in the winter. November thru Mid May hours are: Friday thru Monday 7am-2pm, closed Tuesday's and Wednesday's. Mid May thru the summer we are open Every Day 7am-3pm.
