Stopped in for lunch on our drive through Grand Forks. Had the Eggs Bennie, was outstanding. Family had burger, homemade patty and special sauce, was very tasty. Service was great and food fresh and tasty. Definitely be back on our next time through Grand Forks. P.S. Restaurant for sale for personal reason and not due to sales.

Sign says business for sale, hmmmmmm the fifties mood is a little reliant on music from that era, not much else though. Food was satisfactory and lots of it. Seemed to be lacking a spark of interest in the customer. Could be a good thing, but needs work

Stopped here for breakfast on a road trip thru Grand Forks. Excellent food ,service and interesting 50's decor in a roomy diner. All 4 of us had a tasty better than home cooked breakfast. We would highly recommend this restaurant --we felt we had a happy day as we started the next segment of our road trip.

We arrived a little short of half an hour before close, hungry and tired from driving all day. The server was very friendly and greeted us promptly, with no sign of being annoyed from such late guests before closing time. She gave an excellent recommendation on the fish and chips when I asked how it was. The dish did not... More

We've traveled through Grand Forks for years, and find getting a meal here is fraught with slow service and high prices. So, compared to other restaurants in Grand Forks, this place rates quite well.

The food is great and I would have enjoyed it much more if I did not have to look at the filthy floors that look as if they have not been washed in months. Had breakfast 3 days after our first visit to restaurant and floors still very very dirty.

Having read a few negative reviews on other rating platforms, we decided to give this place a try while in Grand Forks. The atmosphere is very authentic, the server professional and attentive and the food fantastic at reasonable prices (probably a few dollars less than city prices). We went first thing on a Sunday morning and there were very few... More

While heading home to Kelowna we arrived here late in the day and wanted something to eat before going home. A lot of places were already closed so we decided to try Happy Days Diner. The decor is just as the name says `50`s. Lots of 50`s and 60`s memorabilia around and you feel as though you are going back... More
