Small, quaint roadside diner, off the beaten path. Waitstaff was friendly and efficient. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. Had the homemade sausage breakfast with eggs and corned beef hash. Large portions and very reasonable priced. Get off the Thruway and enjoy a fresh, local home cooked meal.

The food was great and the people were all very friendly . We had a great meal lots of stuff inside my Farmers omelet and my friend had the sausage and gravy over biscuits. Both of us were full when we left. Would go back again .

Service was great. Food was good and inexpensive. While there by myself eating I met the cook, waitress and 2 patrons. It is a very friendly place. Outta the way place unique in its decor. A must stop if you are in the area.

The eggs were undercooked, not seasoned at all and a terrible texture. The toast was totally burned. When I told this to the waitress she sadi "well why... More

Driven past this place hundreds of times but always seemed closed. That's because they are only open until 3pm. It was finally recommended to me by word of mouth and went there last December. Ever since then I have been back almost every week. The food is always excellent. I've tried most of their specials. And I'm not a breakfast... More

April 27th I stopped in for lunch, with a friend. We had the pork loin dinner with mashed potaoes. The potatoes that were served with the meal were soupy (not appetizing). I saw the owner a couple of days later and told her about the potatoes that were served, letting her know that they were not appetizing. When I stopped... More

As a Road Warrior, I look for local food establishments as I have found that they in general provide the best service and food quality as opposed to publicly know establishments . The South 30 Diner proved this beyond a doubt. that it is well worth ones' time to look for places such as this when traveling to various parts... More

Had almost given up and then there it was real country look . With some hesitation went in. Great country look. Nothing fancy here. Fresh vegetables and all else very tasty. Had their fresh sausage it was good. Glad we found it. Staff was very attentive but I can see how some may find it not friendly. Great prices .... More
