I had called in advance to see if I needed reservations on Saturday night and how late they were open. I was happy to hear no reservations were needed and they were open until 11:00 as I was driving from Southern California and had no idea when I would get there. I know I would like the place when I... More

We went again last week and were seated promptly. Service was excellent. A family member mistakenly asked the hostess who seated us (instead of the waitress) for two of their giant... More

Visited the diner at the suggestion of friends. The service was a bit slow. The meal was very average. The deserts were the shining star of the establishment.
