We had supper at this cute retro 50's style restaurant. The food was great, we were able to find lots of peanut free options and there was no seafood on the menu making everything safe for me.

Food just average, although the tuna melt sandwich was delicious. Chips and onion rings a bit overdone. Nice atmosphere though. Worth going just for the milk shakes - awesome!

We had lunch here and were not disappointed. The service / staff were excellent and the food was very good. The overall experience was as it portrays itself (American Diner) and it does it very well. The food was excellent value for money.

The hamburger came quite quickly (5-10 min wait) and the waitress said she would bring the fries shortly. I waited 2-3 min and they did not show up. I then... More
