Surprisly good!

This is an odd little place. The entire places is a shrine to Marilyn Monroe. He memorabilia adores the walls. The soups here are always delicious and the variety of offerings are great. The salad bar is good. The only thing I did not like were the crepes. They were not crepes they are pancakes... read more

The Elkton Diner offers good food (not elaborate nor costly) and very good "value for money." Breakfast is served all day (on most days), and there are daily specials in addition to an extensive selection. The Salad Bar is very good and is well-maintained with fresh veggies. In addition, service is fast and efficient. The Elkton diner also offers one... More

An old-fashioned diner that's open 24 hours with tons of breakfast options, lots of seats, and friendly service. It could use some more parking, but that's about it. If you like diners, it's worth a stop.

Comfortable, useful and convenient. An interesting hybrid of Diner X Family Restaurant. Very basic good food, priced well, with clean atomosphere. No frills and no romance...save the very well displayed collection of Marilyn Monroe pictures!

My wife and myself arrived at the restaurant about 8:45, with plenty of time to eat before their advertised 10:00 closing time. We were almost finished dinner avout 9:35 when the manager turned out all the outside lights, enclosing the parking lot. When paying our bill at 9:45, I asked if she would turn the outside lights so we could... More

The dishes are a little loud when they clean off the tables. The salad is limited but you can make a meal from it. The menu is average. The price is good and the service is quick. Plenty of parking. Always seems to be open and clean. Children menu Handicap parking is limited but not too far from the door.

Nice restaurant with many selections on the menu. Haven't had a bad meal from here yet. Wait staff is always pleasant and helpful. Had the hot turkey sandwich, none of that "processed turkey meat" here, it's the real thing. Desserts are yummy too. Always one of my favorite go to places for a nice, simple meal.
