Laura, our server, was very polite, knowledgable and helpful. The food was good. What we had was obviously prepared on site. I had the Loaded Veggie Omelet and a bowl of chili. The food was good , and the ambiance added to the effect. All in all, it was a very pleasant dining experience.

Classic diner nestled uptown from Ohio University. We went for breakfast on Sunday morning. A lot of people also went that morning, but the wait was reasonable, the service was good. Food and atmosphere was. . .classic!

We try to have breakfast at the diner whenever we are in Athens. The cinnamon rolls are fabulous. The traditional breakfasts are also good. My son ordered a milkshake, yes for breakfast, and when I joked about it, the waitress acted as though it was the most normal thing ever. Friendly service.

The diner was really busy.....but worth the wait. Our waitress was awesome. Her name is Laura. She made our lunchtime a real treat. Awesome burgers and to die for milkshakes, made with real ice cream.

Love the potato soup and the club sandwich. The hamburger and fries are good too. They also play music from pandora inside the dinner which sounds great.
