My wife had the Turkey dinner, it was very poor. The turkey was the best bit but the vegetables were unforgiveably overcooked to the point of mush and the gravy was tasteless. I had salad which was a bit tired and the lettuce was partly discoloured. The meet in my lamb kebab was processed with all the natural flavour and texture processed out. The disappointment was mitigated by the friendly staff, salt of the earth!

I went there with my family. Good portions, good flavor, plenty of options for both adults and children. I had the chicken masala; chicken, pasta, mushrooms and gravy. It was very tasty, HUGE portions. My wife had the Greek platter with a gyro, fries, and a Greek salad that had more feta than you can shake a stick at! My son had a hot dog, daughter had chicken tenders, both were fine. We had a small appetizer and a chocolate cake for dessert. Service was fairly quick and the bill was under fifty before tax.

Since the ownership change, it's always iffy on whether the food will be good. A sure thing are the burgers and fish & chips. Bar is excellent, with great bartenders and entertainment on some nights. Great please to rent for a party too. We have had a couple their.

This diner has a lot of choices from pizza to seafood. Many lunch and dinner options have the home-made look and taste. Very reasonably priced and the staff is friendly and fast. You can enjoy a beverage with your meal as well.

Easily sat family of 9. Child friendly. Good service. Had omlet. Little undercooked, but tasty. Everyone else's meals looked good. Large portions. Would go back.
