Excellent old time diner, with great food, huge portions, cheap prices, and the best coffee I found in Great Falls. The server was quick and friendly and even gave us tips on where else to go in the city.

I think this is one of those old downtown restaurants (an institution) that locals have a connection with and reverence for. Not being a local, and only looking for some good and interesting food, I can say that I wasn't impressed. Our waitress was friendly and efficient, but food service was very slow. To make matters worse, the food wasn't... More

This was a pleasant surprise. Walk thru the door and be transported back to the 1950s! I had SOS on toast-something I rarely see on menus. It was quite tasty. The place was neat and appealing with pictures from days gone by all over the walls. Worth the stop.

Being vegetarian, our choices were limited, but our server was fantastic. Great with the kids, and managed to find us plenty of choices on and off the menu. The decor was very authentic 50's style. We had a nice lunch and talked with the server about some of his amazing family history. All-in-all, a very pleasant experience.

The decor was from the 1950s, probably original rather than retro. We liked it. Food was tasty, priced fairly, service fast and cheerful. Chips were unexpectedly included with the egg salad sandwich, and the omelette came with fried potatoes and toast. Everything was pleasing. The menu was mostly breakfast and sandwiches/burgers, but that was fine with us as we ordered... More

Expectations, we sought the diner out because of the high trip advisor ranking. Food was fine, service was nice, decor was like a flea market.

Good service, tasty food. I had the spicy gyro -not "too" spicy but lots of flavor. Fries were nice and crispy. Average prices for area for lunch. My companion had the ham and Swiss melt on sourdough --the bite I had was good, lots of gooey cheese.

We found this place on Trip Advisor. The food was very good, with large portions. My husband had the "Classic oatmeal" a large serving of oatmeal with blueberries, coconut, almonds, apples, cinnamon and heavy cream. he really enjoyed it. I had eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast. It was a large portion and very good. My only complaint was the... More

I live downtown. this is a local bastion of late breakfast and lunch that is run by the folks that have Dimitri's, a Greek bistro across the river. It is the epitome of 50s diner motif, booths, malts, burgers and plate breakfasts and lunches. No fancy stuff, just the good stuff in large quantities with jukebox background.

Loved this place, the atmosphere, and chatty, laughing staff. Food was good, great comfort food. The milkshakes are awesome. TIP- take in the whole 50's atmosphere and sit at the counter if you can! Fun!
