How can you not like a place that is a shrine to Marilyn Monroe? Check out all the photos and mini juke boxes at the booths. We've been eating breakfast here for a couple of decades. We keep coming back. Prices have risen, first place finishes have diminished, but we still love the food and the service. The bacon can... More

We were driving through and stopped for the first time. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The salad bar was nice and the fried chicken was delicious. The portions were very big and plenty of drink refills. We all left stuffed.

If a place messes up my coffee, it's off my list. The Elkton does it right - a hot potful right on your table. The omelettes are full and juicy, the over-easy eggs are spot-on. I am personally tired of cliched diner interiors that feature Elvis, Marilyn, etc... so I take the paper and read rather than study the walls... More

Eat here on occasion, pretty quick and good service. Booth seating unless you sit at the bar coming in.

Had breakfast here on a Monday morning. No surprises. Typical average breakfast. Eggs were over easy. Hash browns filled half the plate. Tasty. Bacon was crisp, as requested. Toast was loaded with butter. Coffee was average...though I liked the carafe it came in, kept it warm and you could refill yourself without waiting for waiter. Staff was very nice. Just... More

First do not like giving a negative rating but we stopped here because of the good ratings for breakfast on trip advisor. I knew things were not going to be good after my wife came back from the restroom and told me if we had not already ordered she would of left as the restrooms were filthy. It did not... More

Breakfast is the best, large portions cooked just right. If you like sausage biscuits and gravy this is the place, can't get that in NJ where we just moved from. Dinner specials good too. Very friendly place.

This place has an excellent waitstaff, Ashley is the best waitress I have ever had. The chicken parmesan on their yearly specials is a HUGE portion and without a doubt the best I have ever had. You can tell it is hand breaded. The meal also included salad bar and dessert!!! Well worth the 8.99 , we will definitely be... More

This restaurant has the rudest hostess by the name of Debbie who is also the manager according to her. From my understanding she is the owner's girlfriend. Restaurant is dirty and needs a major cleaning. Their soup is good if you get anything chicken based, but it's not worth the headache of dealing with her. They offer a senior discount,... More
