I love diners and this place has a good diner atmosphere. We had patty melts and a burger. Both were okay, nothing special, but okay. I've been here before and enjoyed it a bit better, but it seems to me the food was less seasoned.

Needed to find a quick bite to eat on Saturday evening. They had plenty of space for our group, we enjoyed our meal.

Friendly staff. Food is always good. We had the omelettes and pancakes. Delish! Would have given five stars but the building in and out is in need of some repairs.

.The Egg;s Benedict were said to be "phenomenal"by a special dinner guest. I found the Reuben sandwiches abundant and flavorful. This clean and friendly Diner left me with a heck of lot of nice menu choices ... next time!

I love diner food, and this place certainly kicks it up a notch. I have tried several items on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The meatloaf, patty melt, omelets, have all been amazing. The service is great and everyone is very friendly.

Good food in an interesting atmosphere. Menu is not very creative and a little pricey for standard diner food.

This is a real authentic diner. Menu is huge and selections are great. The "Blue Plate" hamburger was very good; the fries were excellent - you can tell if they don't change the oil often enough; these were perfect. Returned the next AM for breakfast....More
