This is a very small diner. Old school. The service was excellent. Very pleasant. We each had the toasted burger. Essentially it's a grilled cheese with a delicious burger slipped in. I had mine with bacon. It was so tasty. I loved it. I would go back again and again.

Giving 5 stars because they serve the best chipped beef and our server was so friendly! We've driven by countless times but we're glad we stopped today. Dan had his French toast and enjoyed it. Give this little diner a chance!

An old fashioned diner with a varied selection of food. We always have at least one breakfast when visiting the area. Generous portions of well prepared food. Huge pancakes, great omelets, delicious french toast, etc. You will leave satisfied. Breakfast service ends at 10:00 AM.

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.
