Great place - proper old-school diner atmosphere

Had a lovely family meal here with our nephew and niece who are 8 and 10 years old. Menu of American favourites pleased the whole group. Bit rough round the edges but that's the charm.

This favorite breakfast spot is delightfully packed with couples and families all having a good time. Wait staff hustle, weaving in and out of narrow spaces, take your order in an efficient, matter-of-fact manner. Choices for breakfast are endless, although we all lean on favorites. Ten kinds of bread, toasted or grilled, linguica, bacon..., fruit, spinach..., eggs, pancakes in any... More

The first time we were here was for breakfast. Everything was very tasty. The next time was for lunch, again, everything was tasty. The next time, lunch was the same items, but they tasted very different. We discovered that every time the cook changed, so did the food. It was very inconsistent. Nothing tasted the same twice. We stopped eating... More

This is a very ordinary diner which has somehow become insanely popular for weekend brunches. I've been there a few times, always looking to experience the magic, but it hasn't happened yet. The food is OK, but only OK, and they haven't got a clue how to make a decent hamburger.

I have always held off on visiting this diner because it is a built on site diner verses the Worchester lunch cars, or Jersey diners which had to be brought to site on rails and there are so many to see in New England. So finally as a change of menu I went in and had the 8oz hamburger which... More

Went here with my family and friends. Looks like a real old diner from the movies. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Good food, can really recommend this place.

We came here to celebrate special date without having to spend hours going downtown and back (It was a Monday night, and we both had to work the next day.) Our experience was like others have said - good food. Extensive menu options. Unlike what others have said, I don't remember the prices being crazy. Under $20 for both of... More

Went on a Saturday morning. Crowded with families. Good, but not great food. Service was also good, but not great. If I lived close by I'd probably go regularly.

Some friends and I were looking for food at 8 oclock last night in Watertown. We ended up here. Walking inside, its definitely a diner. The menu had so many selections it made it difficult to choose. We started with an apple fritter with maple syrup. Oh it was heaven. I walked in the door wanting a burger and ended... More

Love diners and this is no exception. Food quality is great and plentiful but they have lost the diner feel. Overpriced for a diner and can.t take a family for breakfast or lunch without breaking the bank. Why?
