Old school sock hop!

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!

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.

Our waitress Jaymi was so friendly and even though she was super busy, she never missed filling our coffee cups or making sure we were happy. Our breakfast was served hot and delicious and the restaurant packed us very yummy deli type sandwiches for our picnic in the park later in the day.

If you are old enough to remember the lunch counters at Woolworth then this place is going to take you back. I stopped in for breakfast and had the 2 eggs, bacon and potatoes ( I will say that you have to add the " SOS gravy " to your meal and you will not be disappointed ) This is... More

We baby-boomers were reminded of the old Woolworths lunch counter and enjoyed our sandwiches and homemade potato chips. Would have had a slice of pie but we were too full. The owner stayed open past closing to accommodate us.

This was an awesome place to visit, not far from the C.M. Russell Museum. It was once an old Woolworth's building that they converted into this diner. They had many vintage items on the shelves, the seats and chairs were all pink and green. The service was great - very friendly. The food was typical diner food. The shakes were... More

We went to 5th street Diner for breakfast on a trip to Great Falls. The breakfast was wonderful. The eggs were perfectly cooked, as was the bacon, but the best was the pancakes. I travel a good deal and love to eat breakfast out, and these were some of the best pancakes I have ever had. I wished I lived... More

Looked up local restaurants on Trip Advisor and the reviews on this one looked good. We were very pleasantly surprised not only by the neat decor, but also by the food and especially the friendliness of... More
