What a fantastic find. This has to be one of the most genuine American Diner's I have seen on the West Coast and it certainly won't be our only visit. The service is excellent and the portions plentiful. The staff are very helpful and we even went home with an Archie's t-shirt, which I believe are very rare. Get yourself... More

The diner is located on the quieter end of Cannery Row, next to the Outlet stores in the ATC building. One person was on the till, so it was a 10 minute wait to give our order and then 30 minutes before it arrived at our table. The sandwiches (sand dabs and tuna) were both very good and the prices...

Half of our party liked this place for Breakfast. They ordered chicken and waffles. The other half that did not like it and ordered omelets. Canned mushrooms were awful and the eggs were not cooked properly.

Nice stop after a walk along the coast. Their prices are cheap and they have a great assortment of draft beers! They have a nice amount of outside seating too!

The food was ok (burgers and fries) not bad but not the best I had. Service and price were reasonable but the location was nice, not far from the center of things, but still a bit off to have a quiet break.

Archie's suffers because it is near First Awakenings and does not have all the great outside seating. Do not let this deter you. If the line at FA is too long, go here. The service is very prompt and the breakfast food is very good. Plus, they do have about five tables for sitting outside. I usually stop here about... More

To start with, the diner was not full, was not busy. The breakfast we had was great. My wife had egg whites and bacon. I had their Cancun Omelet. Real good omelet. Service on the other hand, was a little off. Our server forgot one order of toast and my wife's potatoes. She had to go up to the serving... More

I have only eaten breakfast there but it is always good. Very close to the aquarium or before a nice walk along the beach. They serve breakfast until 2 so if you are not up as early as normal, it will be there for you. Our food last time was perfect. Nothing fancy but very good. We didn't even order... More

A simple place with great burghers, fries, fish & chips and quesadillas. It is also very cheap. Bathroom needs an overhaul.
