To be honest, we only went to Julian for some Apple pie. I know that sounds silly, but that is why. We really needed to get some lunch so we had to make a quick decision about where to grab some food. We popped in to Miner's Diner and were welcomed with smiles.

This review if for the service only. We arrived at 10:35 pm and were told that lunch starts at 11:00 am and it would take 15 min to get prepped and organized. We decided that would be ok and decided to order drinks and wait. My daughter ordered coffee milk shake and I ordered tiger's blood, which by the way... More

Our family stopped in Julian for lunch yesterday and Miner's Diner seemed the perfect fit. As we walked in my son said to me "Why is this place special again?" The soda fountain was great and the family loved the large shakes. They were big enough to feed two. We were also able to share the meals. Prices were a... More

Loved the old time soda fountain venue. Great malts and floats the old way with real ice-cream. Great food and loved the display of all the soda bottles.

Not only is Miner's Diner a big building full of fun, but the food is as tasty as the antique decor! A long, polished soda fountain counter with swinging stools, historic photos and artifacts on the walls, 1950s music, and Bob's Big Boy all greet you for a great meal! So many choices! The hot coffee, burger and veggie burger... More

Good Hamburgers and REAL Ice Cream made Sodas, Milk Shakes and Malts. Very busy on the weekends when Julian is most popular with those who want an hour or less drive from almost any place in San Diego Country

Huge portions.... Shared a great clubhouse sandwich n was definitely enough for two adults. The chocolate shake was a definite flashback to the past! Staff were super friendly and fun.... N a fun decor in a historic building. Great lunch place in Julian.

The folks at Julian Pie Company sent us over to Miners Diner for lunch, and we thought it was pretty good. We had the pulled pork sandwich, which was very good, with a tasty barbecue sauce served on the side, and a huge mound of pulled pork on a nice, soft roll. The cole slaw was a bit bland. We... More

I was originally going to write this review while eating at the Miner's Diner, But I found it too hard to put down my burger and fries while eating at the Diner! I ordered a delicious Buffalo burger, Fries, and a mocha almond fudge malt. The dinner also serves old-fashion Soda's which taste great! The diner also has a candy... More
