Visited the place on the 4th of July weekend. Miner's is located on a corner and has a great view of the Main Street. There was a parade that was cancelled because of a fire but this would have been the place to be. The food is tasty, the staff gives great service, and everything is affordable. Just because the...

Fun place to eat, with good food. Order at the counter, and sit while waiting for your food. Clean and organized feeling, with the old west ambiance. Nice light from the huge windows in front and view of the bustle out on the sidewalk. Burgers were tasty and filling. The soda fountain seemed fun, but didn't try any of the... More

After peering in the window, we had to go inside and sit at the counter for lunch. I had a turkey burger with fries (extra crispy). It was more than I could eat and the price was under $10. The photo opportunities are endless. The soda fountain artifacts are cool. Our waitress was a doll. I think that stopping in... More

Had burger, fries and float here. The floats were expensive and small. The burgers were below average and they were not generous with the fries.

You can spend hours looking at the old Route 66 type memorabilia, but you came there to eat, right? The menu was exclusively American comfort food faves, but well prepared, fresh, and tasty.

We usually drop in for a great milkshake and the bison burger. It is like stepping back in time. I definitely recommend it!!

It's a cute place to stop for a burger, but a bit cramped. The portions were large. The fries were really good, the turkey burger was slightly above average. The prices are reasonable, but not cheap. A meal runs about $10-$13 per person. The staff were very friendly. You order and pay at the counter first, then they bring your... More

It's been about 18 years since we visited here but it hasn't changed a bit. Good, but not great, food, fun atmosphere, and superb malts. This isn't a place where you expect top quality food but what you get is good....burger, fries a drink. Sure beats Mcdonalds!

Quite nice, I would say. Your usual American diner, but the fries (I love fries) were good, so you got me here. Wasn't cheap though. As I'm almost always on a budget, I kinda like when it can be a few cents less. The atmosphere is lovely, very lively, lots of sunshine going in through the huge windows. I had... More

The atmosphere took you right back to the 50's! They gave you a card from a deck and yelled out your card when your order was ready. The food was very good and I was pleasantly surprised. I would visit here again!
