Visiting the area and always happy to try a NY diner. This one looked good from the outside but take my word for it - stay far away! We were a group of 8 and had no trouble getting a table. Service seemed pretty attentive. But the food? Oh my. It. Was. Awful. Among the 8 of us, we had... More

Not welcomed when we walked in, but the waitress was a bit better. Felt like a place that retired mafia guys hang out. Food is fine and since we were on a road trip, it was better than a gas station breakfast.

Food is less than desirable. Ordered a Swiss omelette for breakfast this morning. Tasteless. Sent it back. Waitress took my plate, turned her back on me, and whispered something to the hostess. Hostess checked me out and didn't say two words to me. Sorry to say, I won't be back. Will much rather go to Ikaros Diner in New Windsor... More

For a Diner the prices are way to high. Portions are good but your typical diner. Look for another place to eat, nothing special here.

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 extra... 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
