2 choices of lumberjack breakfast!!

I absolutely enjoy the breakfast. Unusual names for meal types. Confusing mexicalli names befitting of a burrito food truck. When a little literacy is utilized you can find some treasures. Almost always get hot turkey sandwiches when I eat dinner here or fish and chips. Average dinners.

I ate here twice in one weekend. I'm from out of town and always love finding a good new place to eat. The portions were huge. The first meal I ate here was dinner, I ordered the Prime Rib. I've had better but it was still really good and the Yorkshire pudding was amazing. The next day I had breakfast... More

Anytime I want a big breakfast at a reasonable price this is the place for me. I love their food and prices. You have to come early as their is always a line up. The 50 dinner has smoked meat sandwiches my next best thing. If your ever in Cambridge you have to try it you won't be disappointed.

When ever I travel to Cambridge, I can count on eating at the 50's Diner a couple of times. It is a very pleasant family style restaurant, with a large variety of selections on the menu. I have never had a meal there that I wasn't satisfied with. The portions a very large, and the food is very tasty. Efficient... More

We went there unintentionally and found a great place. We were impressed with the decor which emulated their small town warmth that matched the staffs attitude. Friendly and fun. While eating their original tasty dishes we engaged another couple sitting next to us, The four of us ended up laughing and carrying on while enjoying a lovely meal. Just a... More

Don't come in unless you're hungry. A great diversified menu with lots of choice and all of the orders are "heaping". So much so, that everyone, it seems, get a doggy bag when leaving. The place is clean, service courteous and atmosphere terrific. Prices are reasonable considering the ambiance and menu.

The staff were really friendly, it was a really nice casual family diner. Very relaxing. The vegetables were fresh not frozen and the food came quickly. The restaurant was spacious so you didn't feel restricted. It was full of families, couples, friends but not a place for romance!!
