Food was good, with a wide varying menu. Beef dip was a little dry (the beef), Fries were good, Mushroom Swiss Burger was pretty good Service was just okay. Wait staff was friendly and upbeat.

Ate here with my husband's family while visiting for Christmas. It is an unassuming little place in the very charming town of Kernville. What was most impressive was the the restaurant's flexibility in meeting my very strict dietary needs. I ordered a custom plate of hamburger patty, eggs and avocado.

On recommendation from our hotel we had an evening meal at Cheryl's Diner. Fantastic service in this family run business - we were served by Cheryl's grand-daughter. Cheryl helped us plan our next day trip into Sequoia Park - you can never fault local knowledge! We even got our first 2015 calendar c/o Cheryl herself. Food great value for money... More

Cheryl's is our "go to" place for good food. It's not gourmet, but the basics are always good. Breakfast is the best. Love the eggs Benedict and the omelets. Good burgers and French Dip sandwiches. Crisp salads with homemade croutons. Most of the staff is friendly and this family owned/run restaurant takes pride in their business and their city.

The food is just okay, and some waitresses are nice, but some are really rude. I would recommend the Cracked Egg.

Had a lovely dinner with the family. Friendly staff and good service. Kids had the fish and chips with fruit, lived every bite of it. The burger and home cooked dinner tasted for more as well :-) All in all a good place to eat, and definitely recommended.
