The server is very efficient

Food here is above average and not overly expensive. The server is a good one and she knows her business. She won't let you run out of anything and each time any sever passes your table, they stop and look to see if you need anything. They don't bother you but just seem to know that you need... read more

This was my 1st time here as I had business in the area. We decided to give it a try as we were tired of the typical McD's fast food. The wife had the 1/2 ham sandwich combo and I went with Alex's wrap. Both were fine and typical diner fare.

I refuse to eat here again. The employees mock the customers and talk behind other customers' backs. the guests are hard core christian or hillbilly inbread freaks. rude, and hypocritical. the prices are outrageous. and such a shame., the food is great. But I won't participate in that sort of hidden agenda, two faced B.S. there are other places. I... More

We had a quick trip to Lake Arrowhead, and were hungry. We came to Trip Advisor site to find something new outside of the Village 'standard choices'. This small restaurant, just down the road in Blue Jay, was just right! I had the Belgian Waffle and it was one of the best I've eaten (even better than the one I... More

Simple and good food. Friendly and efficient staff. Old fashioned diner atmosphere. Go here often for breakfast and lunch meetings with one or two people.

I have eaten at Bill's every time I stay overnight at Lake Arrowhead ahead and have never been disappointed in the food, prices or service even though they are very busy at times the eait is worth it for the quality of food for the price.

It's a classic coffee shop...exactly what you would expect. They do have a good salad bar for those who are not looking for basic breakfast fare.

My fiancé and I enjoyed going there for a quick breakfast. We like to split the corned beef hash with potatoes and eggs. The place is newly remodeled and the service is good.

Bill and Linda run this diner...and it's a throwback to the '50's...Huge breakfasts...in fact, huge everything! Portions are substantial so arrive hungry. They have the BEST onion rings i've ever had...great sandwiches, and a salad bar. They have recently redecorated and it's got a down home, cozy feeling. Attentive wait staff, great food, inviting atmosphere....what are you waiting for? C'mon... More

Living locally I can't tell you the # of times I've dined here. Mostly great food and service. Occasionally you might hit a hiccup, but 90% 0f the time it's a great place to go for breakfast (my favorite ;) ) lunch or dinner. They have great special and lots of home-cooked goodness. The prices are probably a little more... More
