Very nice milkshakes.

Lovely Milkshakes, they were £4 but I think they were worth it. Very clean. Lovely place to stop off on a long journey. More expensive than burger king but much better quality.

OK American Diner on A1 Northbound just past Stamford is an excellent location for a real hearty and affordable VFM breakfast. The diner is set back and is not really easy to see from the carriageway but it is located at the Jet services. As you can see the breakfast is most excellent and the serving portions are generous.

Beautifully presented, authentic looking American diner that looked promising but unfortunately didn't deliver. The staff were miserable and the duke box must have been broken as instead of a lovely atmosphere we had to listen to the staff moan about deliveries etc... As this wasn't a cheap place to eat I expected more!! This was a treat to break up... More

seated opposite the entrance to the kitchen, till, next to the door where people and staff walked by constantly - could not chat or enjoy meal. Staff looked like they didn't want to be there. Had a voucher for a free milkshake, 30% off and a loyalty card. Waitress huffed and puffed when we presented this then proceeded to moan... More

I took my partner there today is I've been twice before with my kids. I told her that the milk shakes are the best ever so she couldn't wait to go. I told her that we should just have a milkshake and a small bite to share as the shakes are just so filling and the wait from getting drink... More

The staff did their best and actually once our order was taken all went well but the wait between being sat and getting our drinks was overlong. Not the fault of anyone on duty, they were working hard trying to serve food, take orders and seat people. Food is well cooked and in adeqaute portions. Atmosphere as good as one... More

I've frequented OKs around the country over the years. This was my worst visit yet. The staff are friendly but the food has gone seriously downhill. My dinner looked well below par, as the chicken and chips smelled as if they had been cooked in old fat - several times. I tried to eat some but gave up after a... More

We came here very late one Thursday before flying back to the UK. We enjoyed a good few hours eating, chatting and soaking up the atmosphere. it was a great way to end a two week business trip. The food was simple but nice and the staff were friendly and attentive.

Having just had a meal here I was left with the feeling that the whole experience could have been much better. Everything was just so average. The theme is great but it was all image over substance, no wow factor, food could have been from any fast food place. Just ordinary roadside food, small portions,the only thing memorable was the...

Been here today and will never go to an ok diner again after our one and only visit to one. After a 20 minute queue to get a table the restaurant was tiny and dreadfully smoke filled, leaving our clothes stinking of grease for the rest of the day. There was no extraction or ventilation and when we mentioned it... More
