Went for a late lunch, so we were one of three tables when we arrived. Guests arrived, ate, and left before we got our food. We both ordered their special of the day (basically shrimp & crawfish alfredo), which others were eating, so the cafe hadn't run out of its special!! The greens were so salty they made my mouth...

Had the fish and chips special for lunch today. The fish had an awful spoiled smell to it. Cole slaw was obviously grocery store packaged. Thought I'd read and was given password to their wi-fi. My phone spent my entire visit trying to connect. Waitress was wonderful, other staff, not so much. Have eaten here before for breakfast and it... More

We've seen this cool retro aluminum diner several times as we looked for real estate in the area. We finally went there for lunch today and it instantly became our new go-to. We think our grown children and their children will love it. The menu covers everything from diner standards like patti melts and malts to trendy veggie fare like... More

We have been visiting the diner for breakfast about twice a month. Service is always prompt and friendly. Favorites include the Philly cheesesteak omelet and fresh squeezed orange juice. We usually order the standard two egg, bacon or sausage breakfast with toast and their wonderful fingerling home fried potatoes. Delicious. Can't wait to try their lunch and dinner menus.

We were looking for a good local place (not a chain) to have dinner when we arrived at our hotel in Pensacola, FL. The Scenic 90 Cafe was recommended to us by our hotel desk clerk who told us he was born and raised in this area. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was great and... More

They don't just fill your milkshake glass they give you the metal container too! If you want extra malt they will add it but I find regular to be enough. The menu has typical shiny metal diner food, but also an upscale menu in the $14.95 range from the old Skopolos restuarant. The Margarita Grouper was deeeeeeelightful, with tequila and... More

We tried Scenic 90 via gowaiter.com. Gowaiter was spot on as far as expected delivery time; however, one item in our order of 5 entrees was incorrect-(received grilled catfish, ordered fried)- big boo-boo when the diner doesn't eat grilled. Cheeseburger and Pastrami Grinder were both average. We didn't agree with the rave reviews over the milkshakes..also average. Two house salads... More

We've only been to this cafe three times. It's easy to see that the management wants to make a good impression. However, today's service was the worst I have had in my life. The male server was late getting to the table, rude during serving, the order was wrong, the other waitresses had to help with drinks... must I go... More

A previous reviewer stated this was a historic landmark. Not so. Diner is only about 10yrs. old or so, they do not claim to be historic. Crawfish & Andouille omelet was to die for, side of grits was skimpy but rye toast was very good. Ham/cheese omelet was excellent. We had to wait quite a bit for the food, but... More
