We received our drinks and the waitress never returned to take our order. Another waitress felt sorry and took our food order. She also forgot to submit our order so we decided to leave after an hour. Our waitress finally showed up and offered to place our order but we wanted to leave. She did make us pay for the... More

One of a very few places to get something to eat after an 8:00PM show. The food was just okay, however I treated myself to a malt and it was great. I would go back again but only for the fountain treats.

A 50's diner atmosphere with diner food. I always have a fun time and good food when I visit Uptown Diner. My food is hot and prepared as ordered. The homemade pork tender loin is a favorite (and ice cream). The last time I stopped for lunch a shaved prime rib sandwich was featured. It was very good. The free... More

Tori is a real gem and made our meal memorable. She was sweet and entertaining and just down right endearing. She didn't hesitate to make recommendations and we felt very welcome. The food is good, the service was as quick as it was friendly and the atmosphere is very family oriented and clean as a whistle.

Really liked the milk shakes and the double steak burger. There was live entertainment nightly. That was fun.
