Long line but friendly, quick service!

This is a busy little diner located on the fringe of an upscale shopping area in Dedham. As out-of-town visitors, we found the place on the Internet when searching for a place for breakfast close to our hotel. The line was out the door when we arrived around 9am, but my husband had the idea to skip... read more

One of my most favorite spots in MA, and always make a stop here now that I have moved away. Don't let the line out the door stop you, it will move quickly and the meal will be delicious! I often have a hard time choosing between breakfast and lunch items- I want them all! The wait staff is always... More

One of the best brunch I have had in recent times. We were visiting the city from chicago and found this place on Google. We saw a line at 10.30 and clearly showed the there was something about the food here. We chose to sit in the bar kind of setup and the lady was very nice. I had the... More

Diner food at its best and a great value. Lines can be long, but worth the wait. Comfort food is incredible. Only downfall....Cash only.

We went to breakfast with some friends and were pleased with the service, atmosphere and the food. We tried a variety of items including the Belgian Waffle, French Toast, scrambled eggs and their grapenut pudding. All of the dishes were very good, but when one of the party asked about "Real" maple syrup, our server informed us that they had... More

I was visiting a friend in Boston and we went to this little restaurant in Dedham. I was pleasantly surprised! It doesn't look like much inside or out, but the food is delicious! There was a long line out the door. We were seated after about 20 minutes. Service was prompt and friendly. This is no frills food, but worth... More

always clean, like the nostalgia decor, great food. we usually go there for Father's Day so it feels a bit rushed because a line forms in the parking lot after we get there, but when we go on a non holiday it's very nice, one of our favorites close to home.

This is a great place for diner food. There is a wide choice of breakfast and lunch items. Everything is mad to order and the portions are very generous. The pancakes and omelets are outstanding. The atmosphere is as the name suggests, 50's. Even the owner looks the Elvis part, It's a fun place and the food is outstanding. Often... More

I met some friends from out of town for breakfast at the 50s Diner on Saturday after Thanksgiving. The waitress seemed a bit out of sorts and got several orders wrong. The scrambled eggs were overpriced and a bit runny/wet. The 50's Diner is not cheap and not good either. I'd rate it below an IHOP. There is a Whole... More
