I do prefer eating at local diners than fast food places. The service was friendly but the food was average with good size portions. If in the area I would eat there again.

Very large variety on the menu, daily special, portion sizes large, prices average with the exception of the specials. Service good, low key friendly atmosphere.

The service was mediocre, the food awful, and the coffee so distilled we were awake half the night. The "spanakopita" ordered by a friend resembled meatloaf at best, cheap dog food at the worst. The soup was contrived out of leftover frozen veggies from another day's special, my steak salad was all the cores & ends of iceberg lettuce, and... More

A lot of these types of diners are the same: huge menus, lots of average foods, decent enough prices but run of the mill offerings. I think food quality would go up if they didn't have so many items. Trying to do prime rib, open turkey sandwiches, multiple soups salads steaks pasta sandwiches seafood etc... just too much means a... More

So, after the physical remodel, the place looks ridiculous on the outside now but nothing was updated on the inside. It still looks antiquated. Decided to try the place again and could not have been more disappointed. Open face Turkey sandwich sat under a heat lamp for so long that the gravy formed a thick film. The color of the... More

This was our very first visit. Charlotte was a fantastic help with recommending what was good and the food was amazing. Very reasonable prices. And the portions were perfect. We each got dessert and they were delicious and huge. We just wish they were closer than 5 hours away but you can bet we will drive down here again just... More

The meals at the Park Place Diner have been consistently good. Large portions of hot food and friendly service. Their seafood cakes are among the best anywhere. They also offer smaller servings at a reduced price on many of the items on the menu.

Very clean , very nice diner . Very popular. A little over priced . Very fresh, if unremarkable food . But! The slowest service in Pennsylvania or perhaps America. I don't understand. But! Maybe your bored and just want to sit with people for oh? An hour?...If you have or need a long time to talk or do business, this... More

I ate there since it was close to the motel and was in the mood for a turkey dinner. I was offered a salad as part of the dinner but it was bland ice berg with packaged dressing (yes,there were onions and tomatoes ). Then came the turkey with the dressing (which was moist and tasty) plus broccoli cooked with... More
