Ate lunch at this cute little diner and the people were very friendly and the food was great. I love coming to small towns and trying the local favorites. This did not disappoint.

This is a great place, great food, great service and reasonably priced. All their food looked good but the highlight of my family visit were the eggs. More than 10 years ago I had 'perfect' Eggs Benedict in Philadelphia. Since then I have eaten many...dozens all over the country looking for just as good. None were, most ho-hum. It was a shock to find the even more perfect ones just a short drive from home. Every ingredient perfectly cooked and spiced and the sauce luscious. My young grandson loved his scrambled eggs so much he ordered another plate of them. He described them as fluffy, moist and the best he's had.More

The food selections are very good with some of the standards but also some different ones that sounded great. I had the corned beef hash, which was the best I have ever had anywhere. My husband and I sat at the counter and had a...good view of the cooks. They were amazing! They managed to make a variety of items all at the same time, then plate them in a very appealing way. Such talent! We really enjoyed our meal and highly recommend Dave's Diner!More

We came for breakfast at this favorite destination. As always the service and coffee were outstanding. The menu and chef keep people returning again and again. Today I tried one of the specials, avocado toast with an egg and vegetable hash. It was out of...this world and I suggested it become a feature on the regular menu, fingers crossed!More

We always love to go to Dave’s diner after church. The atmosphere is friendly, the food is good, and the staff is like family. We especially love the half-moon cookies, They are our favorite.

My husband and I are breakfast fans. I also have food allergies. The staff was excellent about writing down my allergies and making sure that nothing was wrong with my food. I had the eggs (over medium) and bacon with home fries, my husband had...corned beef has (HOMEMADE) and eggs. Fantastic. We went back the next morning and had pancakes (me) and sausage gravy and biscuits (husband). These were also great. The staff was fast, efficient, and funMore

This is a good diner. Friendly staff. Good menu. Its located close to the town centre. We thought it would be good because it was so busy.
