Good slightly above average food

This place was across the street from the Holiday Inn Express. The staff was very nice to us and we were seated immediately. It was a Saturday night about 7:30 and there was still alot of room in the place. The waitress was efficient, kept the water glass full and stopped by and asked if we needed... read more

We were staying across the street at the Holiday Inn on our way to Dorney Park and read the reviews online and decided to give them a shot. Our waitress was very accomodating and the food was superb! We are from Northern NJ where food is great and were not expecting Italian dishes like the Chicken Marsala and Seafood Alfredo... More

Our first visit to Chris' Family Restaurant was average . The food was good, and the menu had a nice variety to choose from. The waitress was not very friendly at all and rudely told us she had to take someone else's order before ours. I understand if we were not next, but I feel she could've said it nicer.... More

My family visited this restaurant because it was located across the street from our hotel. We went over after a long day at the amusement park so it was rather late. The waitress seated us immediately and took our orders. We were a party of 11 but she didn't mind. Our food came out quickly and everything was delicious. We... More

Just had breakfast here recently with a friend. We came right before work on a weekday around 7:45am. It wasn't too crowded but noticeably busier than other places I've been to at this time. It's a nice place and pretty easy to get to, right off Tilghman St. I had the pepperoni and mozzarella omelet with egg whites and my... More

The breakfast menu offers a lot of variety and choices. The portions are big and the food was delivered to the table hot. It tasted wonderful! The waitress was very friendly and offered excellent service. The parking lot was full when we arrived so the locals must agree! This restaurant is a definite must for breakfast!

Diners are quintessential American culture. Employees are often family even if they are not related. The good ones care about their customers and the food they serve. Chris's Family Restaurant is my local diner, an excellent example of this. Great food, great staff.
