This was the worst food we've ever had. But the parking lot is full to capacity all the time! In 80 years my husband has never left food on his plate. He ordered baked stuffed haddock, and got a small, flat piece of fish that was stuck to the plate. He took two bites and stopped because it was so... More

Okay, I can't say enough about this place. It's right across the road from the Best Western Plus. We had breakfast there 3 times. Everything was simply perfect. Chris has a chocolate fudge cake that is HEAVEN. Baklava was simply delicious. We had gyros and chef's salad. Just wonderful. Service was very attentive and even better, are the prices. Keeping...

Great food and many choices. Servers were very attentive and always friendly. Owner is Greek, they had a nice choice of Greek food, too, in addition to all the usual diner comfort foods. Good choice of delicious healthy salads, too. Really something for everyone. Great chocolate cake!!! Open 24/7. Highly recommend!

I've been to Chris's a few times and to be honest, it is very hit-or-miss. Some days it is fantastic. The food comes out piping hot, within a few minutes of ordering regardless of the crowd. Other days I've been there when it's nearly empty and had to wait an hour for my food! I can't say it is bad,... More

This is your average diner. I sometimes go here for breakfast when I 'm in the mood for pancakes. They make a really good coconut pancake. All their pancakes are good but those are my favorite. The prices are reasonable, typical for diners in the area.

Great menu, lots of options, usually very busy. Worthwhile wait, and food is almost always very good. Just cant pick waitresses, as most are very good, but a few make the visit less than worth it.

Got to my hotel around 10 and was starving. Figured since it was across the street I'd give it a try. Typical diner, nothing fancy. Had the bacon cheeseburger with fries. Don't know if it was because I was hungry, but it was really good. Thing was pretty big, enough for my wife to have a few bites.

Went to this restaurant last night with my husband and parents. It was very clean and the service was good. I had the cheeses teak quesadilla and it was very good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. I was impressed with the variety of food available on their menu.

When driving up to it my first impression was that it was a restaurant, but once walking in it was a dinner. The staff was fussing with each other because a person was given a larger table then she had and was mad that she was not given the chance to work together on it. The grilled Ham and cheese... More
