Wanted to eat here on way to Ocean City, MD on 6/28/14. Place was closed up. Ate there a few years ago and it was good. Hope they open again. We tried another place we ate at before and that closed up too. Ended up at IHOP.

This is ...without a doubt...the best "locals" place for very good food at very,very reasonable prices. Extensive "comfort" menu choices! Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner....all are worth repeated visits!

This restaurant was a really great place and had good food and great prices, however, sadly, the restaurant has had a fire recently. They will be rebuilding as far as I understand, so, when they are back I would give them a try !!

My companion and I went in for lunch. We ordered two turkey sandwiches on rye. They came with a pickle and some chips. And it went all downhill from there. The smallest pieces of bread (not rye) I have ever seen. No meat to speak of. The plating looked like some child was playing kitchen. Quite frankly, the entire kitchen... More

This is a great place for a quick, thrifty, good meal. It is a very typical diner atmosphere and has a local, hometown feel. Everyone seems to be a regular. As a non-regular, it reminded me of a New Jersey diner and I especially loved the moose decorations. The wait staff is typical brash-style, not unfriendly but no nonsense. The... More

Years ago I came here with my parents to eat on the way to the beach and remember it as good, solid diner food. Always loved the scrapple sandwich (don't judge, I'm a Delaware native). This last time I was looking forward to sharing the place with my kid, but never even got a seat. We walked in the door,... More

My husband and I visit Delaware each September for his high school reunions and each year we take several friends to 'Kirby and Holloway's' for dinner. The food is always good and the cost is unbelieveable for the quality and quantity you get. After such a sumptious meal, no one wants dessert but this year, Tom's classmate Rachel Ann, made... More

Good value. It looked like they had spruced the place up since our last visit. If you like diners you'll like this place. Save room for their wide variety of desserts.
