Good diner, but nothing special.

This is a good diner to eat at for breakfast but don't expect anything special. Food is average but will fill you up. I would compare this place to a Denny's or I-Hop in comparison to quality. Its a cool retro 50's design and could really use a juke box to add to its ambiance! All in all for the... read more

Pick your own table, (try to find a clean one) and prepare to hear "I will be with you in a minute) for at least 15 minutes. Ask for water as she walks back and forth and maybe you will get some. Same for a cup of coffee. When you do finally make your order, ask for a glass of... More

This restaurant is like a 50's diner. Really fun to look at the interesting decor. We had breakfast only and it was good. It was just plain home cooking at it's best. The prices were reasonable and the waitress was a good server.

We ate here because we were staying at the Oak Tree Inn and it is right next door. I've read several negative reviews, but we found it to be a fun experience. Penney's is a 50's, 60's type diner, with lots of chrome, bright colors and lots of memorabilia of that era. They also play typical music of that time,... More

Staff will lift your spirit. We tried lunch, late snack, and breakfast. Very pleased. I'm not sure but I think it is open 24/7. Parking is shared with motel so parking is kind of a problem.

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 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.
