No veggie burgers or anything else for non-meat eaters. Place is very loud, people and kids loud... young staff are nice.. more an ice cream place then a restaurant. They have a long ways to go to improve the food. No atmosphere, the Bear gig has lived it's life and the place needs and overall if you want to attract... More

My husband and I stopped here for a breakfast before hitting Darien lake. The food was amazing. I had a bacon and cheese omelette and my husband had pancakes with one egg and toast. The food came out quickly and was delicious! We will definitely come back if we are out this way again!

We were staying at Darien Lake and thought our family of 4 might try this place for breakfast. Reviews seemed ok, and maybe lunch or dinner are good here, but breakfast isn't. First off, three of our four orders were botched. For two of the meals, we asked for sunny side up eggs, which the waitress repeated back to us.... More

Went here after my sons baseball game and had a burger and curly fries. The burger was one of the best I have ever had. My son loved his chicken fingers, my daughter really enjoyed her chicken finger wrap. Clean restaurant, great prices and friendly staff!!

We got the name of this diner from Buttercrumb Bakery. We stopped by on the way home from Darien Lake amusement park. We were waiting for a while at a table, till we figured it out that we need to find the menu and order it. There is no waitresses to take your order at your table. So when you... More

We stopped here on the way home from a trip to arcade. Ice cream was the object of our stop and we were well rewarded! Warning: portions are pretty big, we were a bit overwhelmed by the size of orders so keep that in mind. The ice cream was all tasty. Service was excellent as well.
