We found this diner on a trip to Adamstown. I love diner's for the vibe, decor and food and Dave's did not disappoint! We were looking for a place to grab lunch and decided to give it a try. We had the mushroom soup and it was by far the BEST I have ever eaten. Creamy and rich with REAL... More

Been here many times and never disappointed. Breakfasts are large and very freshly prepared food with great friendly wait staff who enjoy a conversation with you. Only open early until about 2:00pm for breakfast and lunch. The ambiance is typical diner but very clean and loud but that is all part of the experience Nice stop if in the area... More

The place has the look of a classic american diner, but was a little dated when we walked in. We debated for a couple of minutes and decided to give it a try, it was a good decision. The food was very good, we had soup to start, both the pumpkin and the bean and ham were very good. The... More

Food good service better. Waitress friendly and up beat. Place clean and bright but a little on the cold side on this 40 degree morning. Breakfast this trip. Have been here before for breakfast and a Sunday turkey dinner but not for a while. Like my eggs moist but could not get my request fulfilled sorry to say. Prices average... More

This diner is next door to an antique mall and, after shopping, I walked over for lunch. Sat at the counter and had a cup of clam/corn chowder and a tuna sandwich. Both tasted fresh and homemade. Service was prompt and friendly and prices were reasonable. If you're in the area, I suggest a visit.

The diner itself is your typical cool retro diner. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My daughter enjoyed her chicken fingers but especially loved her mashed potatoes. The Dutchman was excellent as was the French dip my son enjoyed.

Came here in the in-between time where they serve both lunch and breakfast and it was not busy. Have been here before in the early morning and had to wait, but not long. Service was wonderful; our waitress gave us her recommendations and any question we had she either answered right away or found out the answer and relayed it... More

This is the second time I have eaten at Dave's. We got there a little close to closing time so they were out of the chicken pot pie my sister was looking forward to. Our waitress was so friendly and suggested I try the soup. It was outstanding. I also had a tuna fish sandwich on toast, which was stuffed... More

We went to Dave's Diner after antiquing. (Our Garmin couldn't find it, so it was pure luck that we saw it.) The waitress was very nice. I had the roasted chicken sandwich with a side salad. The salad was AWESOME. The chicken sandwich was a little over cooked, I thought, but not outrageously so. And, because I had asked about... More
