Mark's Diner could be finer

Mark's aims to please. Service was great, as were the eggs, which were made to my liking. Hubby was very happy with the omelet and home fries. Loved the decor! Sunday's now is buffet breakfast only. I would have preferred an a la carte option as well, but I understand why they do this. A sign... read more

Restaurant very appealing upon entry. Our visit confused with a mix of lunch and dinner menus. Server distracted, had another server take over our table. Kids order was not as requested. One parents meal was not as requested. No follow up by any server to find out of all meals were ok after meals delivered. Noticed one chef away from... More

How fantastic that on Christmas Eve my Aunt and cousin's and I could go out and enjoy a wonderful family dinner. Thanks to those who were working that evening and warmly welcomed us to enjoy our dinner together. All of our meals were amazing. Cooked to perfection. We felt like we're were also sharing a wonderful time with the cook... More

We just had an excellent and extremely generous breakfast here. Friendly reception, clean, comfortable seating, fast, efficient and pleasant service and omelets expertly prepared by Mark himself. We found the place on a Sunday and were treated to all you can eat buffet breakfast for only $10.99. It was delicious and there was plenty of choice. Looking at the newsletter... More

My roast beef dinner was unattractively presented, slopped onto a plate that was not even dinner size. The The almost too generous portion of meat was passable but drowned in thick tasteless gravy. The roast potatoes were clearly roasted but equally clearly had been sitting around for too long. The veggies were limp and overcooked. The Yorkshire pudding was excellent... More

My husband's daughter chose to make a reservation at Mark's Finer Diner for Sunday breakfast buffet. It was our 1st visit at this new location and we weren't disappointed with the food, staff, service, price and decor. There are interesting fun signs and artifacts on the log cabin walls. Mark is a very friendly happy chef who makes it a... More

What to do on a very wet Sunday in late June with relations (both foodies) over from the UK? Mark's Finer Diner is the answer. Awesome brunch which defies value. But the main draw is the entertainment cooking your omelettes. Strutting, scowling but a man on a mission...Mark is THE man. Seriously, I have never had a better brunch. I... More

We had a great server - upbeat and attentive, and we enjoyed looking at the interesting 'faux-cottage' decor. The food was fine, but nothing special. My yorkshire pudding was very dry, and dark brown, unlike the eggy, pillowy yorkshire pudding clouds of my youth (and even now available as PC products at the grocery store), All in all 'A' for...
