Real Nice

Had a good breakfast in a nicely appointed diner. Server was very attentive and quite friendly. Eggs and hash for me, hot cakes for my wife and two really good coffees came to only $13. Would stop here again.

We were sent here when the restaurant we were suppose to have lunch at had a power failure and there was 46 of us. They had room for us. What a pleasure! The service couldn't be any better. They made sure we had everything we needed and that our food was what we wanted. We all had different menu items... More

Good basic diner food. Very authentic Greek desserts. I highly recommend the Baklava. Delicious!! This diner is conveniently right off the highway.

I liked the fast service. Food was good. Service was a little on the lacking. Example: two glasses of water at the beginning and the waiter would come and ask if they could take the plates without us finishing what was in front of us.

Cant go wrong with a diner. No exception at the Parthenon. Food was good with a greek theme. Had the greek sampler - was plentiful and delicious. Menu isnt lacking. Save room for dessert- the dessert case will greet u on ur way in. Nice stop.

We had an enjoyable dinner. They have a large menu- sandwiches, wraps, dinners, salads, and soups and breakfast items as well as desserts. I had a tossed salad with grilled chicken- it was fresh and tasty. My daughter and granddaughter had grilled cheese sandwiches, and my husband had a grilled chicken parm sandwich. For dessert we shared a large chocolate... More

I dine here quite often as it is close to the movie theater. Service is usually pretty fast and the staff is very friendly. Anything I have ordered, burgers, sandwiches, salads, the specials, soups, has always been good. Have never had breakfast, so can't comment about it. I always get a chocolate egg cream to drink - love it! And... More
