Nice restaurant

My wife and I ate at this diner on our way through the town. It was nicely decorated and clean. The staff were nice and helped us to choose a meal that met with our wishes. Be advised that salads are about $9- $10 and most dinners were around $15 - $20. If you substitute anything, there is an... read more

My husband and I had visited this diner while having a meeting with our officiant a few months prior to our wedding. The staff was friendly, the food was tasty, and the waiter didn't rush us while we chatted and kept our coffee mugs full. Great spot for a cozy meal.

Went there with a group last night. We were at two tables with the same waitress. I don't know if she is related to someone there or what but it is outrageous that this waitress treats customers the way she does. She rolls her eyes, does not know anything about the menu and when questioned says " I don't know... More

Service was horrendous. Gentleman did not speak any English asked for refills twice, and forgot part of the order than was written down. Food wasn't much better. Corn beef hash looked like puke and was undercooked. Home fries were undercooked and bland. Not a good breakfast but nice atmosphere

I decided to take my father to this diner for a birthday breakfast. The food nothing special, however, the service was great. Waitresses are very friendly and accommodating. I am not in a rush to return anytime soon.

We stopped at the Bright Star Diner over the weekend, and were pleasantly surprised. The service was great and the food was delicious. They have a small salad bar, which has a nice selection, not the same old salad stuff. Would definitely go back again when I'm in the area.

The Bright Star diner serves delicious food. We stop there every week after we do our shopping. The food and the service is always top shelf. They have a great salad bar which as stand alone dinner with a bowel of their soup is a real treat. The waiters and waitress are top shelf, polite and efficient. When they are... More
