Great diner along highway

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.

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.

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

the first visit to this diner was wonderful. We had a yummy lunch, were seated promptly and the waitress was attentive and friendly. A few days later we returned for breakfast and though seated promptly we waited forever for server to take our order. My husband had to stand up and wave to get our coffee and again to get... More

I stopped here for lunch. I was greeted and seated immediately. The waitress greeted me and brought me a beverage.The menu was fairly typical for a diner. I selected a sandwich and was able to make a few modifications to the dish. The sandwich came out quickly and was wonderful. The waitress was attentive. I will be back!

Stopped here for dinner on our way to visit family. Great meal. Great service. My Caesar salad was excellent and my husband's burger was huge. Everyone liked their meal. Sadly we were too full to try dessert. Can't wait to go back.

The food came quickly and the waiter was attentive throughout. The price was reasonable. Woudl definitely stop in again the next time we... More

We've eaten here before with decent results- nothing to write home about but 'good enough' when it's a little late and you're hungry. Stopped in tonight and really wish we hadn't. Ordered a french dip and a hot dog, with some wings - basic fare. Ordered at around 9:45. Took 45 minutes to get food. Really surprised as it was... More
