An Old Standby

This diner has been around for years, and generally the help has also been around for many years. The food is good for the most part, and the prices are about normal for their home cooked type food. When Don and Sweet Sue's is busy, parking has been difficult. Service is generally good.

Hear this advertised on the radio so thought I would check it out for lunch as didn't want to eat fast food again! The service was very good and the menu huge! I heard a couple of guys rave about the Patty Melt as they were leaving so I gave that a try with a side salad. The salad was... More

One of the best restaurants in town. I eat here quite often. Great employees and owners. Always makes you feel like part of the family. They remember my name as I come in

We went her twice for Sunday Brunch. Both times we got seated right away, on the patio. Nice Menu. Food was good. As was the service. They let dogs on the patio, which was so nice cause we were missing ours. Parking is good, may have to go behind but that's not too bad. You want good food, good service,... More

The made to order omelettes are great. Sourdough toast too. Many of the staff have been there for years and it's a team effort on service. Seating outside on a warm day is nice.

Friends had raved about it but our lunch was ho-hum at best. A group of us lunched here and I wish it had lived up to the endorsement. My pastrami sandwich came on rye that was all fluff and no substance. A true pastrami sandwich deserves the proper rye bread. Coleslaw also bland. Fish and chips voted average. Spinach salad...
