BIG food, delicious!

50's diner with all of the look one would expect from a soda shop coca cola type atmosphere. Service was initially slow, but waitress scooped in when she saw other person didn't take care of us right away. Had California Eggs Benedict, omolette, and corned beef hash stacks, all super big and... read more

Cobb salad was served with no dressing. It was dry and tasteless, I couldn't eat it. My wife ordered a mediterranean salad with chicken which was much more palatable but boring. Our friends had mediocre hamburgers, fries and onion rings. Frankly, we could have done much better at McDonalds, taste and pricewise. The 50's diner atmosphere was cute and the... More

We're here for breakfast and lunch. The oatmeal at breakfast was almost the best I have tasted and the servings at lunch were huge. Service was friendly and there limitless coffee at breakfast.

Run of the mill - average food - but fun atmosphere taking one back to the fifties. Clean, shining and reasonably priced. If you like burgers, fish and chips, etc., this is the place to go. They sometimes have vintage car shows outside, which is a draw.

Can only comment on breakfast as those were the only times we ate there - three times. Fast and friendly service, excellent quality food. In one case had to ask them to tone down the music.

Our first time to an American diner, and we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and efficient, and our waitress announced that we were 'cute'! The portions were enormous, and delicious, and we left the diner with big smiles on our faces.

Enjoyed a great baked Halibut overlooking the water. Prices were very reasonable and staff was attentive.
