Country Diner, Good Food

It is certainly not fast food, but it is good food you will find here. This unassuming building on route 50 just south of Cambridge, looks more pre-fab than glitzy NJ/NY style diners but don't let looks fool you. They have the classic extensive menu with many of the items you expect but also with... read more

Very affordable meals and an extensive menu. We had excellent breakfasts at the Diner. The service was very good in spite of it being quite busy. You will not be disappointed.

Wasn't too sure about this place as I walked in . Restaurant was rather dated. The salad bar had the freshest lettuce I have had in a long time. Everything on salad bar was very fresh. My meal of chopped steak also very good.b I will return there.

Traveling for the weekend to Easton MD we decided to stop for a bite so we wouldn't have to go out again once we checked into our motel. I've eaten at the Diner before but it has been a few years. It hasn't changed in appearance and has the typical family-style diner look. It was dinner hour and they were... More

The food is very good, the staff is excellent, very friendly, they make sure you have what you need and you are satisfied with your meal. We ate breakfast there three mornings while visiting and dinner two nights. The pork chops were delicious, ham with pineapple excellent, broiled flounder and tilapia very good!! Save room for dessert because they are... More

This is one of those places that doesn't look like much from the outside, but, boy, is is worth the stop for home cooked food. I've probably been here close to fifty times over the last ten years and the quality of food and service never falters. Great breakfasts and excellent lunches and dinners come out of their kitchen in... More

I've eaten breakfast here after hunting, on cold mornings, and for lunch and dinner. The food is good, and the portions abundant, To top it all is the salad bar, which is a meal in itself. And in the land of scrapple and home fries, it is quite a surprise to find baklava and shiskabob on the menu. This Turkish-Eastern... More

Pancakes were perfect, and they know how to do eggs over easy... Even did a pot of decaf coffee for us. We are in town for IM MD and will recommend to others.

This diner is a true American diner, with everyone indulgent breakfast, lunch and dinner selection you could hope for. We went for breakfast and had hotcakes plus. Loved it all. Service was super fast and courteous. No problem tweaking orders to our likes. If you like diner food (and your waist can handle it), I think this is probably the... More
