So so at best. The food ordered was not what came to the table. The waitress acted as if we were imposing. The French fries were very good but that is the only thing I would eat there again. There are better options near by.

Stopped here tonight for a bite to eat. The place is very dated but honestly it's part of its charm & character. Out food was very good & we left there full & satisfied. I have read other reviews about rude servers, we didn't experience that tonight, in fact our server was very pleasant. Two people are dinner for $16... More

Stopped in for a comforting diner lunch. The waitresses were not totally attentive, except to the regulars. They stood at the counter, talking with each other instead of making sure their clients were attended to. The beef barley soup was too salty to be enjoyable. The Reuben was very good...well toasted, tangy kraut and plenty of corned beef. A pickle... More

This place is the best. Everytime we go to Scraton we stop here for either breakfast or dinner. Prices are great specials are good and the food wonderful. Great portions for the price. Staff are very polite and friendly. Must stop if you are around the area.

If you are looking for a real old time diner experience this is the place to visit. Great food. Super friendly staff. Hot cakes are delicious.

Loud obnoxious waitresses, cook standing over the grill with a greasy apron, and a well-worn property. Capable at eggs, pancakes and coffee. It does what it's supposed to do. Nothing more. By the way, as it seems to be typical for the area, it is cash only.

Nothing to rave about. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. She did her job well. Establishment itself definable needs a good scrub down and revamping. But it's a diner. Plain and simple. Food was as expected.

How anyone can give this a 5 is beyond me. Oh boy, I don't even know where to begin. Classic diner of course. Talkative cook who needs to pay more attention to cooking. Loud waitresses who seemed flustered most of the time. Food was really, really bad. Over medium eggs with whites uncooked, requested crispy bacon which I think the... More

On the outside it looks like a very traditional diner. Their strap line is "Open 24 hrs since 1946". I assume that's why they haven't had any opportunity to clean it or redecorate it. The waitress clearly didn't want to be serving customers, especially out of towners like us. Not so bad if you're a local. Food was not good.... More

This old timey diner gives off the impression that its going to be just like dining out in the 50's... well its not. the food is hospital quality at best... the wait staff is rude and inattentive...It seems very tight knit, where the waitresses have their favorite regulars and ignore any new comers. we waited over 30 minutes before even...
