Good food, convenient to hotel

I enjoyed breakfast there which was included with my stay at the Oak Tree Inn next door (2 free options or $7.75 credit). I really liked the skillet breakfast except for the pancakes. They were too sickly sweet even without syrup. Service was ok. I would eat there again, especially for the price... read more

They were too sickly sweet even without syrup. Service was ok. I would eat there again, especially for the price and convenience.

Handy to the hotel. It is like the old 50's diners. Good choice of items to chose from. Will go there again.

We went there for breakfast after and it left much to desired. The food was not terrible but was not great either. The waitress was rude. I will probably not go back again.

Penny's Diner has decent food. Haven't been there but a few times in just about as many years but I didn't have any negatives to say of Penny's. I would go there again.

Went there in the morning for breakfast after staying at Oak Tree Inn. Have read some of the previous negative comments so didnt really expect too much ..... but was surprised! There was only 2 people working there; the cook and the waitress but with such a small place might not need anymore help. The service was fast and the... More

It has been three years since I at there. I have only been there one time. The service was not the fastest and the food was good. I think they have had three or four managers since I ate there. I am nit sure. H

My family and I went here for mothers day and it was horrible. There was one woman running the front and one cook. Service was very unprofessional. We waited an hour for our food and when we got it both cheeseburgers were still raw. Completely red. So the cook put them back on grill for us, when we got them... More

how can you ruin breakfast...well half cook the bacon and don't let one drop of fat fall off before it hits the plate...geez we headed downtown to several good bakeries and finished up where the coffee left off...we did get a coupon for breakfast at penny's staying at the oak tree but really continental would have been much better.

The food was mediocre at best. The server and cook spent most of their time discussing smoking and killing themselves by smoking. Our order came out in parts, with our child's food being last and very late. (We had finished 1/2 our meal, and only for fear it would be cold if we waited, ended up giving 1/2 our meal... More
