We went around dinner time but only the front room was being used (as I have sincseen that there is a back area they could seat people at....or maybe do private parties.).. Food was average, it was noisy and service was a bit slow but again...it was crowded. Food was average as was price

We come here often for dinner, maybe twice a week. They usually have the same specials each weekday, so it's easy to plan a trip on the night they feature your favorite. Excellent chicken and biscuits on Tuesday, and once or twice a month they have a really good beef stew, usually on Mondays. Steak stir-fry is also a favorite.... More

A lackluster greeting was followed by being seated in the back room where we waited forever to see a server. My dinner of "ham and scalloped potatoes" was a bowl of unseasoned potato mush with bits of ham in it. I didn't eat it and our clueless waitress didn't ask if there was something wrong. She then asked if I... More

Consistently good quality food at reasonable prices. Homemade soups & specials every day. Plenty of variety to choose from. We keep returning for good reason!!

Oh my gosh...Palmyra desperately needs a good restaurant. This place was nasty. It was dirty, the food was crap, and the service was unprofessional. We came across another diner (Yellow Mills Diner) that was a lot better, but still not spectacular. Unfortunately, the area doesn't have anything amazing.

This is a nice family diner with a casual ambience. Plenty of parking (note: DO NOT park in the Dollar General parking or you will get towed). There is a good amount of seating (seat yourself) - but all booths, no tables so it feels a little tight. They have a large and varied menu that has breakfast, lunch and... More

We've been coming to the area for years and we're looking for a good, "non-pizza" place to eat. The menu had a HUGE variety, the food was fresh and outstanding, and the staff was super friendly. We will make this a regular stop on the years to come!

The prices were comparable with chain restaurants, and not overly expensive. We were surprised that the portions were so large.

Food and service poor. Food tastes like came straight from a can. No original recipes. Server didn't seem to care that we were here. I don't recommend unless you like bland food.

I have nothing bad to say about this diner. I eat here frequently and the food is good/ the portions are large/ the waitresses are adept at what they do and very friendly. Price wise they are competitive with the other diners in the area. (maybe even a little cheaper)
