Terrific that this place is open long hours for those searching for a quick bite at various times of the day. Breakfast served all day and it's good! The rest of the menu is extensive and portions large, but quality and taste of food is hit or miss.

I have come here plenty of times with my family and it's always different. Most of the times we are all happy with our orders but tonight was not so much. My advice would be that with such a big menu it's best to just order breakfast. Most ingredients should be fresh everyday and mostly are very good!

Big portions, quick and friendly service. Gotta love the fake plants all over the place. Overall a great spot for a quick filling meal after a long night at work.

If you go here hungry you definitely won't leave that way. The portions are plentiful and very good. We had breakfast which is served all day and it was really good. Service was excellent and our waitress was very pleasant. Our food arrived quickly and nice and hot. French toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, omelette, homefries and coffee was what we... More

This was my first time here. It was lunch time but I ordered breakfast anyway - hash and eggs with toast and home fries. The meal that greated me was nothing short of hugh - good - quick and inexpensive. I almost couldn't finish it. The parking is a little dodgy but whatever.

My family and I often eat at this diner. It is def one of our fav diners around where we live. The diner it's self is a bit dated but the food and service is pretty good! There is a lot of seating so theirs hardly ever a wait. Also one of the only resturants open on Christmas in Connecticut!

Kind of a fun dining experience after so many chain style restaurants. Went based on TA recommendations and were not disappointed. Menu was extensive - too extensive. They can't do everything well. Went with waitress recommendations. Grilled Liver & Onions and Patty Melt. The L&O was great and a lot of it. The Patty Melt was a good Patty Melt.... More

Remember the old time diners? This is the place to go. The atmosphere is old time diner. The menu is also. Wait staff is super friendly and helpful No problems with giving you enough time to review the extensive menu. They are open 24 hours 7 days a week. Prices are fair. Plates are huge. You can get breakfast or... More
