Just off the (Rte. 93) highway, this diner is terrific! The menu has satisfying offerings for everyone,,,featuring "home cooking" favorites...decent portions at fair prices.

The shoestring onion rings were amazing, chicken tenders large pieces were good, but most of them were small and way over cooked dry and hard. We had to pay extra for french fries with chicken tenders, plate online said they were included in price. We had looked at menu online before going and prices did not match prices we were... More

It's a diner. Diner food, diner service. You won't leave hungry and the two times we have been the servers were quite friendly and accommodating.

the service, food, and staff are all severely undertrained. They switch employees faster than the food goes out. The only time i would never enjoy their food is from the hours of 6 am to 10 am on the weekends. the owns could have cared less about my problems and brushed it off. I was astounded to find that Poor... More

From Ct and here for work, found this unassuming restaurant with decent reviews. Had the lobster pie with twice baked potato and fresh string beans. It was all delicious and large portions loaded with lobster. My husband had sirloin tips so tasty as well. Just was not wild about clam chowder, a tad salty but I am fussy. Would absolutely... More

Although the interior is unassuming, the music a bit to loud, and the waitresses scurrying to keep up, the menu is extensive and service was good. My prime rib was fine.

This diner has been here for as long as i can remember, the food is home cooked, the staff is exceptionally friendly, and the price is reasonable, not cheap though. You get plenty to eat and you never leave hungry! The best tuna melt and turkey club around! Love this place. Breakfast is an all time favorite of ours!

The food and prices are very good. They have the best lobster rolls, onion rings, patty melts, haddock reubens, french fries, fried shrimp and desserts. The wait staff is very friendly and seems to know everyone's name. The problem, as I see it, is deciding what I want because everything is really delicious. Worth the trip every time. I live...

Food is good at a good value. Comfortable setting. It is a small place so there is usually a wait. The staff is attentive and always checking in on you. Great value
