Time Travel Back to the Fifties

To step inside the St. Clair is step back into the Fifties. You are greeted by lots of Formica and stainless steel, comfy dining booths with plush vinyl benches and a long lunch counter with well-cushioned round red bar stools. The walls are covered with lots of Fifties memorabilia, including... read more

This place is a 50's ish diner. The service is real good, and the food is average, nothing unique though! This is another restaurant people love and I wish they had stepped up there dishes as I found it bland.

The waitress was friendly but very slow ! The food was dry and seemed to be reheated in microwave. I remember the mashed potatoes were very lumpy but my partner doesn't recall what he ordered, because it was so disgusting, he had to send it back, and he didn't want to order anything else from the menu, as he saw...

We asked around the city for the best value Mom and Pops type restaurant. Everybody told us to go to the St Clair diner at the corner of St Clair and Grand. The food was great and inexpensive. Everything is home made and it is still run by the original family since the 1940s. Our waitress Marcia was great fun... More

The rust stains and worn out sign citing "air Conditioned" off St.Clair and Grand just begs for a sign upgrade. the waitress is friendly and everyone is at home in this 1960s facade of a diner. You want Liver and onions? Salisbury steak loaded with gravy? then come here.

Went with some friends for breakfast mid-week so it was pretty quiet & not very busy. Our food was served quickly & was fine. Although our server was polite she never came back to check on us. We had to ask for a refill on coffee (was never offered) & she never brought the water we asked for. Our plates... More

When I first drove by this place the other day I wasnt sure if the place was open. ( I am not from Chatham ) Today I was driving thru the area in the late afternoon, and noticed a sign outside, featuring the special - hot beef- so it seemed it was open. Walked in, very clean, spotless, friendly staff,... More
