Pretty good

Stopped in here for an early lunch last week and it was delicious. I got the turkey club with fries and my husband got the BLT! It's a great place if your looking for a fast easy and quick lunch!

Laurel Diner is a warm, friendly place, old school with the cook frying up your eggs right behind the counter. They do a great job across the board - eggs, omelettes, pancakes, waffles, hash - all the basics done well, and a few specials. They really make you feel welcome, prices are where they should be. Tip generously! Come early,... More

Breakfast was good but hot sun pouring in large shadeless windows made it uncomfortable. I love diners but this one needs a little love on the inside and out.

Local Diner with great food. This visit my husband and I had bacon and egg sandwiches, hash browns and home fries. Food was great and fair priced. Seating at counter or at crowded tables

What a difference when fresh ingredients are used. The omelettes we had were delicious, fresh real spinach, mushrooms. Very very good!

It is just what it looks like: an old fashioned, non-franchise, home cooked food diner. Small, with a few tables and a counter. Open for breakfast and lunch only. We had the Canoe Omelet (filled with ham, hash and green pepper, among other things). It was great, and it came with the best homefries we have ever had. Loved the... More

Very minimal place. nothing fancy. Breakfast fills the gap in a mediocre way. Eggs and hash . Hash was Ok. Service was pretty good. Overall average breakfast place.

This is a nondescript diner from the outside but warm and inviting inside, largely due to the friendly staff. It is crowded with regulars most mornings and at lunch. The hash special is delicious. Two eggs on a bed of grilled hash with home fries and toast. The hash and home fries had a perfect crust. Not exactly health food... More

Had lunch here this week and it was great to go to a place where the food is cooked to order and in front of you. Everything on view, it takes a few minutes longer for the food to arrive as it is freshly cooked, but it so worth it. In fact, I can't wait to go back again!

The restaurant is small, old style. Service was fast and pleasant and food was served quickly. I had eggs over medium with coffee and home fries, very good with the eggs done almost the way I like them and everything tasty. I would go there again.
