Needed a destination to alleviate cabin fever.

It was a good lunch distraction and a reason to go on a road trip and get out of the house. Spotted it on Triple D and thought we would go. I started with oysters on the half shell at $2 a piece, clam roll and onion rings. My wife tried the liverwurst and bacon sandwich. Green River's to... read more

Been going to this diner for years but had not visited in the past year or two. It used to be a lot better than we found it to be this visit. The place is in dire need of cleaning as are the clothes the employees were wearing. There were four of us in our party and although they were... More

no real problem but not that WOW experience one might like. Food adequate, atmosphere 50's diner. Not going to win any health department awards for cleanliness.

My son likes to come here for ice cream. We have eaten here several time for dinner. Good fish/seafood selection on Fridays. Closed on Mondays.

A 50's styled diner with some modern, eclectic twists on the menu. Classic fountain drinks, broad menu, freshest seafood dishes you can imagine in Goshen, well-prepared and served, and desserts (pies) too good to be true. Always a must-do when in Goshen.

Great sandwiches, chili, salads, chili, ice cream, and pies. And, did I mention the chili? It's great. And, no matter what you get, be sure to order a basket of the spiral fries to share!! Excellent, unique setting. You will love the atmosphere and the food!

Pretty good stop. Food is decent. A lot of history in this little place. If you like seeing old time diners or soda shops, this is worth a stop. Food is good and not too expensive. I'd stop here again.

Good quality food and selection. Eat your pie first then your dinner! It's astep back in time when you walk through the door. Young and old this place does not disappoint!

Best little diner in Northern Indiana! Wonderful and diverse offering and delectable HOMEMADE deserts! Old fashioned burgers and fries, salads, soups, and more! Great hometown feel and definitely worth the wait (if you have to wait, and sometimes you do!). We live in town, and make this at least a monthly visit. When our grown children come home, it is...

We love Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and since we were going to Goshen for Christmas with the family, the boyfriend surprised me by taking me to the South Side Soda Shop. The owner is from Philly, so naturally the diner specializes in Philly sandwiches. Not being a fan of cheese steaks myself, I instead got the clam chowder... More
