I was here for breakfast and was pleased with the food. This type of family run restaurant appears to be a vanishing breed, they are all being replaced by cookie cutter, chain restaurants. Over the years we have lost the Sandpiper and the Royal Shield. I have tried the corned beef hash and it was great. Somewhat unusually, it came... More

We have been a few times since we moved to the area. The food and service is good but portions are small. i was given two quartered pieces of potato - bread is served on top of crackers- cold and stale. But the real kicker was when I wanted more ice tea - the server actually said I could only... More

The Cobb Salad was great. The grilled chicken, avocado, and bacon were all excellent! The dinner rolls that come to the table before you order are also fantastic. Last time I had salmon, which was also very good.

I visited this restaurant and ordered a chicken caesar salad. The chicken was tender, the salad dressing was very good, and the flavored-croutons added a lot to the salad. The older waitress that waited on me was excellent. The host was accommodating and friendly. Very nice dining experience at this restaurant.

We (DH, DS, and myself) have lived a mile from this restaurant for over two years and keep passing it up because we figured it just looked like it wouldn't be good. The other weekend we were ready for breakfast and laughed and said let's try it! We were actually pleasantly surprised- with the food and building at least. It... More

We are always looking for a different place to try for breakfast. We had egg dishes and blueberry pancakes though service was excellent but food was just average. The pancakes were rubbery ( overcooked ) though everything else was just ok. The hours are from 6 am to midnight (7 days a week) so maybe we will try it for... More

I never review anything, ever! But in diners delights case, i am making an exception. I am a retired ole man who likes his meals done just right every time i frequent a restaurant. When i tried this place on for size, it turned out to be a perfect fit.! Trust me folks, there's none better.

You will never be disappointed with the menu selections (breakfast served anytime) portion sizes, or service. This place is the old neighborhood standby for locals that know they will get a consistently good meal at a very fair price. You won't leave hungry, that's for sure!
