Great service. Excellent diner food. Pages long menu with just about everything a diner can serve. Just off I95. Eight of us had a variety of breakfasts and all were satisfied.

Traveling on business. This diner recommended by the motel desk clerk. Good recommendation. Typical diner food. Friendly staff. Had breakfast platter and it was too much to eat. Good coffee. All for about $14 including tip.

Stopped here during Memorial Day weekend b/c of the appealing highway billboard on I-95. I ordered a grilled chicken and vegetable (artichoke, etc.) pasta special.

The sandwiches, soups and salads that my family enjoyed were prepared with good quality ingredients and were eye appealing to boot. The staff from the cash register to the server and busser were genuinely friendly and accommodating and seemed to care that we were happy. I had not been there in a while but I'll be back sooner in the... More

I grew up in the northeast and always enjoyed diners, but I now live in Texas where diners such as these simply do not exist. So it was a treat to stop here and enjoy a delicious, diner meal. The food and service were great, and the prices were reasonable. The menu is extensive, with all sorts of breakfast, lunch,... More

This used to be a great place to get just about anything anytime of day. While the menu is still diverse, the food was just average and our booth was very dirty. The service certainly could be improved. The floor was gross and so much accumulated food that I slipped while being seated. When my husband got up to use... More
