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.

Staff friendly in this personally run diner. The menu was very classic with good choice. Nice touches to the décor with 50s references.

Cheryl's Diner (Cheryl and her daughter Sandy) sing in Sweet Adeline's so you may get a real treat if they are having an event! The food is just good old plain, hearty food cooked and served with love. Stop by -- you'll be happy you did!

I really like to stop in at Cheryl's when we're on our way home from a camping trip. The food is good and the waitresses are really friendly. This has become a ritual for us and you'll like it too.

I stopped here for lunch while on a motorcycle trip, and sat at the counter. I got a friendly greeting and fast service. I ordered the "Chef's Salad", expecting the usual "diner" type salad. What I got was a work of art! Don't get me wrong... The ingredients were diner salad ingredients, but the way it was plated was impressive.... More

Consider that this is in a town with limited choices so while the food is very good it's the waitstaff that stands out. The waitresses were dancing and singing to disco music one morning when the...

The service was a bit slow but the food made up for it. I had the hot and spicy omelet with the country style potatoes. It was a lot of food :) I'd stop here for breakfast again.
