My sister, brother in law and myself went for breakfast here in November. We were greeted with a friendly smile and hello. First impression was they actually wanted you to enjoy your time there. And we did!!! The service was fast and didn't interrupt and ask you a ? when you have a mouthful of food. A pet peeve of... More

Small dinner with everything home made, enjoyable people running the place. Soups are the best, sandwiches made right in front of you. Highly recommend.

Looking for a true "'Dinors', Drive-Ins & Dive" experience, this is it! Erie is the only place I know of that spells Dinors with an "O" and serves Greek Omelets! If you've never had an LP Dinor Greek Omelette, you don't know what you're missing! Great food and cozy spot along the Erie Route 5 tourist corridor.

The reviews for this place are bang on. Old school diner that's been around (and I think hasn't been renovated!) since 1948. Was served by Shanna and our cook was Kyle. The quality of the meals was surpassed only by the level of service. Smiles, laughs and great conversation. Soup of the day was the best broccoli and cheese I've... More

Great place for breakfast and lunch! Fantastic food. Great pies for desert! All homemade!! Everyone who walked in was greeted by their first names. Had a great chat with owner Becky! Closed Monday.

We stopped by on a Sunday for lunch but they don't serve lunch on Sundays. Surprised but I can do breakfast about anytime, so we stayed. Wife and I split their breakfast bowl and it was very good plus we got a cinnamon roll thrown in. It was delicious and sweet. Had a very good waitress but didn't catch her... More

An amazing place! If you're visiting Presque Isle, it's worth the short drive for breakfast or lunch. Located in the small, quiet area of Lawrence Park, this is an original dining car. The owners are extremely friendly, the food is plentiful and fantastic! If you order the sampler be sure you're very hungry! The pancakes are the size of a... More
