I stopped in because a prior reviewer mentioned good blueberry pancakes. Well, I have to say they were really poor- Bisquick batter with about twenty berries. Must be a different cook. Coffee was a disappointment and the sausage was way too salty. Should have tried somewhere different. Interior was nice, and so were the bathrooms.

I have eaten in this diner many times....and maybe a review like this will wake them up... The place is dirty... The waitress...and I do not want to be mean...was unwashed and wearing a filthy shirt. Our meal....all three of us...left with our food untouched....the waitress....could have cared less.. Maybe it's more of a local joint...and the diners are just... More

This small diner is wonderful. Great food for a greatprice. Homestyle food or something alittle different. Service is great to always friendly and willing to go extra mile for you. Great breakfast.. big enough for anybody. Lunch specials everyday and dinner too. Desserts to die for.

Eaten here many times for many years. Never disappointed but never impressed. Its good solid food at a reasonable price. It is what it is. I think the pizza is the best in Hancock. True NY Pizza that folds in half. Most folks know what they are getting before they go in and never sorry. For a small town diner... More

The diner is typical; the locals stroll in to drink coffee, etc. We had breakfast there twice and we both loved our meal. I had blueberry pancakes twice and these were the best blueberry pancakes I've ever tasted. Chock full of blueberries. My hubby had ham and eggs. The wait staff is very nice and helpful. They even wrote out... More

We were looking for a quick bite while dropping child at camp and found this diner which seemed a better choice than McDonalds. We were wrong. The waitress got 3 out of 6 orders wrong. The food was overcooked and not good. The wait staff were so unpleasant that at one point one was arguing with me when I complained... More

We found this diner yesterday when stopping at Hancock. I was taking my grandchildren back to their parents and this was a spot halfway between both of our homes. A 5 hour trip divided in half and it worked out perfectly. Food was quite good and staff was friendly. This will be our meeting place from now on.

We have eaten at the Circle E on several occasions while visiting in the area. The service is quick and friendly and the food is tasty. We have only been there for lunch time and have had only good experiences. Mostly local people eating and it is the type of place where everyone seems to know each other. It is... More
