Typical Diner Food

It's a typical Diner atmosphere and food. With that said I don't get some of the reviews that are negative. Since the typical Diner is a greasy spoon and not a five star restraunt. Where you can grab a burger and fries or some breakfast. So if your looking for vegan or vegetarian or... read more

Came with my daughter and 3 other friends. I had a great burger. The meat and the toasted bun were so tasty. Someone else had chicken strips, the breading was homemade and the chicken fresh and not your typical processed chicken.

This place is fine. The food was okay, but there are tons of better places to go. Don't let the faux old time diner appearance confuse you, this shares very little with an actual diner other than its external appearance.

No real diner closes at 9pm. Court Street does. The staff consists of students who would rather be anywhere else but there. The turkey burgers taste like old shoe leather. Weak coffee. Very good French Fries. Central location. No vegan or locally grown breakfast meats.

While we love the special foods of the holidays, sometimes you are ready to get back to your regular eats. Whether it be a delightful salad for a burger and fries, you cannot go wrong at the Court Street Diner. The portions are ample and the service is outstanding. A visit to Athens is not complete without a stop a... More

Best description: BAD My son had a burnt hamburger. I had Alaskan Cod fish and chips dinner that had a very thick tasteless batter that ruined the fish favor. I got sick and was ill for about 11 hours after eating that meal and can blame that fish food. My wife had a wrap that was acceptable but nothing to... More

It's a fun diner with all the decor to go along with the retro feel of the building (trailer?). The food is standard diner fare. It's just very busy and crowded and loud. I guess that's a testament to the food, though. Breakfast there is great. Worth waiting if it's not too cold out (because you'll likely have to stand... More

We were in Athens for lunch at noon on a Friday. While busy, there was not a wait in large part because of the hustle shown by the waitresses. They were not only taking the orders, serving the food but also busing the tables. The food is very good and reasonable. I would definitely stop at this diner again!

We stopped to eat here for lunch on a road trip to West Virginia. I had no idea it was right smack in the middle of a busy college bar street! It made for fun people watching as it was homecoming weekend for the university and everyone was out partying. The diner itself is very cool. I love all the... More

What a great diner! Location is within walking distance of the campus. The diner is decorated like a 50's era diner. The food was good and the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely be back!
