I've been several times. Twice I wanted breakfast and was denied. They close the breakfast menu at 11:30. Reason stated is the kitchen is too small to accommodate preparing both breakfast and lunch. The place is called The Fine DINER. Diners serve all meals all day long. Very disappointing. Other than that, the food is good. I'm a bit of... More

It's a long trip from Brooklyn, but my son took me there for lunch on Father'sDay. Food was great (the onion rings are excellent) and the staff is always smiling. RECOMMENDED!!

Finally tried out this diner. It's usually so crowded we couldn't get in. The food: I got the Eggs Benedict. Hubby go an omelet with ham, cheese, veggies. He loved his. Mine was just ok. The eggs cooked perfectly but not much in the Canadian Bacon arena. The Hollandaise sauce was homemade but i think they only put on 1... More

Cozy breakfast spot with various morning favorites but often with a twist. Perhaps not the spot for those wanting your breakfast favorites and more variety. Nice staff and they seem to move the crowds. Parking can get difficult in the area ( may want to go around the block and park in town on or just off Main Street and... More

The only problem is a positive one-they are often very busy. The owner prepared food is always great, and the staff is warm and efficient. My favorite Clinton breakfast place.

Great place for breakfast. Entrees are enormous and well worth the price. Place is small so get there early. If you have to wait, the downtown Clinton and the falls are around the block.

My family and I have eaten breakfast and lunch several times at the Fine Diner. The food is very good, the place itself has no atmosphere and the parking is a problem. However, it is definitely worth a visit.
