They had the basics, but nothing to write home about. We only had sandwiches, but they were not good, very soggy and didn't come to the table the way we requested. Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else.

Huge menu of course. Great selection of eggs, including eggs benedict and variants. Nice interior and plenty of seating. I've always had great service.

I have eaten here at least 2 dozen times and its always excellent. The service is good and the menu extensive. They often have interesting specials as well. My kids love it and they even have real maple syrup with the french toast. They are not your "normal" diner.

The over medium fried eggs were crusty! the hash brown potatoes were so crusty they crunched in your mouth! The light omelette was taste less. the waiter was non descript and never asked how things were or expressed his gratitude. It is too bad because it is a nice looking diner but it has obviously seen its day and certainly... More

The experience has become old and tired. But if you need a convenient stop off of I95 for a business meeting for breakfast -- it still is worth a stop

It's hard to get a bad meal here. the portions are large and the ingredients are fresh. The vegetable frittata is a great brunchchoice, and the salmon sandwich is fit for a king, made with bread baked there. The staff is friendly - some of the servers are working hard to learn English, and they are very eager to please.... More

Very good breakfast and lunch here, I have never been here for dinner, however there is a large full service bar and lounge so it might be a nice spot.
