Four of us went to Fender's because of the 50's theme. We enjoyed looking at the decor and noticing that most of the patrons must have been locals. We ordered the Friday specials which were fried fish and roast beef and also a Reuben. We were served promptly even though the place was crowded. No complaints from any of us... More

This is a hidden gem. Rock solid menu with daily specials. Get there early or you may have to wait to be seated. The food is very good. The food is diner quality and good portions. The service can be a little slow. The restaurant is clean. Would have received an "excellent" if the waitress was a little more attentive.

Whole restaurant has that 50's feel, Formica tabletops, vinyl chairs, music, posters, petal cars, bikes, old telephone booth, etc. Portions were very generous. My son had a chocolate malted milkshake. We ordered 2 appetizers, a burger, a fish fry, a Reuben and a chef salad. All the food was only average. Our total bill before tip was $49.67. They do...

4 grandkids, 4 kids and our parents. We all enjoyed the 50s theme diner, even the kids (1,3,6,8) liked all the neat cars and pretty lights and signs. The food was decently priced and everyone found something they liked on the menu. The music was awesome but was hard to hear over the chatter of the diners. I never got... More

This place has a complete 1950s feel, but more importantly, it has great food. Our table ordered two Big Boppers (hamburgers), the roast, and (for me) the chicken melt with sweet potato fries. The melt was excellent, and the sweet potato fries were perfect--sweet, ideally seasoned, and crispy without being overdone. Everyone else at our table also seemed satisfied with... More

Went based on the reviews and the fact that you don't see many "happy days" type places. We obviously stuck out like tourist because we didn't know you didn't have to wait to be seated. This prompted the owner to come see us later and ask us where we were from. Very nice and enjoyable. The server was very attentive... More
