We had driven all day and just checked in to a hotel when we came here for dinner. I was doubting the choice but the wait staff was very friendly and the desserts near the entrance looked great. I had the Greek sampler plate (forget the exact name). It was very good! I wish it came with some hummus and... More

We were traveling north on I-95 and decided to stop for dinner and avoid some rush hour traffic. How fortunate we were that we stopped and ate here. First, it is a wonderful, Greek-run diner with the type of extensive menu and mouth-watering dessert display case that you'd expect. Second, and even better, the food is delicious, served promptly, and... More

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

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.

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.
