Have been here several times in the last couple of years. Food is decent and the prices are reasonable. We used ride motorcycles here for breakfast. (now it is getting colder we ride up for lunch). We went last week, three of us, for lunch. They desperately need more help.The wait staff has to clean tables as well as wait... More

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. The waitress seemed like we were interrupting something important...maybe her smoke break I guess. From the beginning and throughout, just sub par service. Had a simple burger based on a poor experience at the Scarborough location. The burger was very bland and in general a below average meal. But the place was packed at... More

Lunch here with friends who live in the area was great. We all had affordable lobster rolls that had plenty of lobster, and just the right amount of mayo. Our waitress was outstanding. She quickly helped us clean up an accidental wine spill, and promptly replaced the glass with a fresh (complimentary) one. Decor of a 50's diner is excellent.... More

They should do better at washing their cups. The service could have been better as well. Atmosphere was nice and the prices were reasonable.

Most of the food here is terribly bland. Don't order the quesadilla it is just a toasted cheese sandwich. Stay away from turkey, it is frozen pressed meat. Fish and chips is a thin piece of breaded fish with more bread than fish. Lobster roll is great and a big portion. Breakfast is usually very good. Brownie sundae is awesome.... More

Have tried this place 3-4 times and found the food very bland. Wait staff is upbeat, but the dishes have no style.

The cool thing about this diner is that it attracts people with vintage cars. The diner itself is not vintage-it is a recently built structure made to look like a real diner. It is also not someplace to go for good food or good service. The best thing about this place is the car owners who bring their great old... More

We stopped at The Blast from the Past on the way North to visit friends. I had stopped there a few years ago and wasn't really impressed, but there was nothing else around and I was hungry. I had a Belgium Waffle as the waitress told me they were made on site and not frozen like most places today. I... More
