Greasy Breakfast

Your typical greasy hangover breakfast. Great value and always great service but nothing too special.

Walked in for a nice Sunday lunch with the family. We were told it's a nice casual place for good home cooked meal. All the servers stood there watching our family walk in. One server said have a seat. We picked a spot and not one server came to help us. Sat there for a really long time and didn't... More

I was here for a business lunch with a colleague. It's under new management that have really cleaned the place up! The dining room still has the 70's ambience albeit now kept very clean and well maintained. The old sign was destroyed in a winter storm and replaced with a new sign that is bright yellow and easy to see... More

The Lancer is our go to breakfast place, mostly just out of convenience. The breakfast is typical, my only complaint is the bacon is under cooked every single time. And if you ask for it crispy the just drop it in the deep fryer which makes it burnt and gross. It has made us start searching for a new place....but... More

Went there for the first time in a very long while and the waitress my friend and I had was very rude, I couldn't believe it. I have never and will never go back. Besides the point it was way over priced. Horrible I can see from other reviews people feel the same. The service was appealing. How some people... More

This place hasnt changed in years, many years. The booths are old, the decor is dated, but who cares because the food is fantastic. I have had breakfast all over the City, this is hands down the best place. The food is fresh and delicious, the service is great. I have been at least a half a dozen times in... More

Posting this again as somehow it got deleted... I ate at The Lancer while I was waiting for my car at the tire place next door. This place has never been my favourite for many reasons, but I gave it another shot since it was close and I didn't want to walk far in the cold. I walked in, server... More

I have lived in Merritton my whole life and have always came to the lancer for my greasy breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Everyone knows this isn't a pretty diner, they don't focus on interior. The food is great and the home fries are the best. However, the service from the waitresses have become so horrible I refuse...
