Decent place for lunch

Stopped here on our way to do other stuff in the area. The restaurant has shallow ramps at the front entrance to allow entry/exit by handicapped persons. The interior is nicely appointed and appears clean. The menu allows breakfast to be served till late in the morning which is a plus for the... read more

We ordered a mixture of items. Each was brought out in a timely manner and were hot and fresh! No problems with the service and the staff was very friendly! Good drink, good food and quickly prepared!

I go to Amsterdam quite often and always looking for new places to eat. I've been in this diner a couple of times. The first time I went in I thought no this can't be that bad maybe just an off day. The food was not that great. Asked to substitute mashed potatoes for French fries and was charged extra.... More

This establishment had an elderly dog in need of vet care tied up in the back of their restaurant. Thankfully this dog has been rescued. If this is how they treat a living being how are they treating your food? Do they deserve your business? Not mine!

The atmosphere is ok not great when they have a full house just a little loud. Food is pretty good and comes out they way you want it. The staff is friendly and and make sure you have what you need. The prices are a little high for some of their dishes but others are reasonable.

We went for breakfast were seated - 15 mins later never saw the waitress - so we left - have been there before service is always an issue in that place - breakfast is not cheap there either.

We were hungry and thought, oh, a diner lets go. What a mistake. They offer breakfast all day which probably would have been a safer bet. Needless to say, we ordered off their huge menu. The meat on the cheeseburger deluxe was forgettable. The Chicken Francaise which was supposed to be lemony was nothing more than pasta with brown gravy.... More

In the area for the summer and have eaten there three times. I doubt I'll go back. The first time was good. The second time, I got spanikopita to go. It was horrible -- mushy and tasteless. It was supposed to com with rice but didn't. It came with a wilted salad and squashy dinner rolls. When I went back... More

If your looking for a good meal at a reasonable price, stop in and enjoy. The desserts were plentiful, and the coconut cream pie was delicious.

Stopped in for a quick lunch with my cousin and daughter, what a waste of money! My daughter wouldn't eat any of hers and my cousin said her gyro was terrible. My own food was bland, no flavor at all.
