Well worth a stop for breakfast before starting your day jn Old Forge. The service is very good, prices are right and portions are huge (at least for breakfast which is what we had).

I went to old forge a few weeks ago for the first time to visit the waterpark and i figured we would give this place a shot. I guess they close at 4 and there was no sign posted, we showed up maybe 15 min after they closed. There were some people wiping down tables and said they werent closed,... More

Where the Locals Breakfast. Typical diner food--good and filling. Good coffee. Friendly wait staff. Nice variety of breakfast choices without being overwhelming. Good for lunch and inexpensive dinner.

Just what you'd expect from a greasy spoon. Food was decent and cheap, they didn't have enough wait staff for us to sit outside the day we went which wasn't that big a deal. Right on the main drag in Old Forge so good people watching.

We've been coming here for decades. This place is great. Order the blueberry pancakes, and prepare to be amazed. Just delicious. And very big. Omelettes are very good, and the giambotta is great.

We were here a few times and really enjoyed the Green Chili. We are spicy food lovers and find the Chili yummy. It's light sand well seasoned. We had tried the fish sandwich, boneless wings as well. All were done appropriately. We will come back just for the Green Chili!

I ate here with my 11 year old boys and parents for lunch twice during a recent stay at Old Forge. The food was good and reasonably priced. The staff is super friendly. I would eat here again and highly recommend it.
