Great Chicken Salad….and Breakfast

We chanced into this little eatery in a nondescript mall while we were on our way to Winter Garden from Clermont. We love diners for the most part…..and this one was very good. The waitress was very friendly, the service was prompt, my glass was never empty. The best part, of course, was the... read more

Don't go for the atmosphere. Clean with a friendly waiting staff. The food was great and lots of it. Hamburgers rank a 10+. Seafood basket good. Good diner food. Only one draw back bring Cash no plastic is accepted. Great place with very good food!

Not fancy, but good, home style food at a reasonable price. Pleasant wait staff in a traditional diner. Portions are substantial, so you want go away hungry. Chile cheese dog was a gracious plenty for lunch, and the spaghetti with meat balls made supper as well as lunch. Give them a try when you are hungry and maybe in a... More

My wife & I went to this restaurant based on a recommendation from a neighbor. My first comment is that this restaurant is called Papa’s Diner, not Papa’s Dinner. The restaurant is tucked in a shopping center with a Winn-Dixie and located by a UPS store. Not easy to find unless you are specifically looking for it or chance to... More

Check hours before you drive out of the way to go here. Closed Sundays and close at 11:30 on Saturdays! Burned twice, won't go back.

I sometimes stopped in for breakfast when I was waiting for Action Gator to service my car. Good service, normally quiet , frequented by local folks. Better than the chain places on Rte 27.

We tried it for breakfast and had a good meal. I ordered the country fried steak which was very good with a nice tasting sausage gravy on top. The eggs were perfect with runny yolks but solid whites. My homefries were a let-down, tasting greasy as if they had been refried from the day before. My wife enjoyed her corned... More
