Younger brother accompanied me, the middle brother, to a place that I hadn't been to in years. I was skeptical. After all, we were led to the very last table at the end of the dining room by an emergency exit door. But then the food came along. Both of us, co-incidentally, ordered the same item--a chicken club sandwich. This... More

If you like great old fashioned diners, this is the place in the area. Nothing else around like it. Prices and service terrific. Often have to wait so go a bit off hours. Early for breakfast or late. Sunday a tough day to get in.

Someone we met in Nantucket steered us here for breakfast our last day before flying home after our vacation. We were not disappointed! The food and service was excellent! Try the blueberry pancakes, loaded with berries, light and fluffy! Topped off with a chocolate sundae that was so big they serve it in two cups!

Never even got seated.... went in alone and my bad back wouldn't allow me to sit at the counter stool. Even though it was mid morning on a tues, and there were 4 or 5 open tables, they told me it was gonna be a while because the "single guest" table was occupied....poorly managed. I won't be back (was swatting... More

We have never been able to get near the 50's Diner before because of the lines waiting to get in. Finally, the line was short enough and in we went. Staff were nice and attentive upon seating and during the meal. This was the excellent part. The menu was ok. The usual. The food was average at best. The prices... More

This is a VERY popular breakfast place in Dedham! As you might suspect, the decor is from the Fifties, with cozy booths, and pics of 'muscle cars' and ads that were current in the Fifties. But the food is even better than the decor! Just about any breakfast item you can think of is available and it's all delicious!! Omlets,... More

This is a family favorite for breakfast. But we are finding it is not as good as it used to be, or maybe we are getting jaded. The concept is of a traditional mid-20th century diner, with an emphasis on comfort food. We always go for breakfast, I do not think we have ever tried lunch. On weekends, there is... More

The belgian waffle was large and the coffee strong, but preferred seating definitely goes to the regulars. We sat against a window and had to keep our coats on the entire meal. Service was friendly, but they only take cash and we still don't know if we were supposed to take our check to the front or not. My recommendation... More

I used to eat here all of the time but now I am not a fan. The food is plain and overpriced. The service is not the best either. The last time that I went will probably be my last time.
