Good food for what it is - a cozy little diner.

The Yellow Mills Diner is another spot where the waitress will call you by first name. They serve basic food that is well-prepared, and a lot of the stuff that is "extra" in other restaurants (i.e., salad, garlic bread, pasta, etc.), is included in the price.

Only went once. Not very clean and food was not anything I would want to repeat. Sorry. It always seems busy but we won't try it again.

We had lunch here one day and were warmly greeted and service was very good throughout our visit. The food was good, not great and the prices were reasonable.

Visiting from out of town, we ate here for dinner. The waitress was very friendly and the food was good and presented well. I would not eat here every day, but I would recommend it to people visiting Palmyra. It's a little aged, but the food is decently priced and had a casual atmosphere.

Very good food and extremely reasonable. Less than 5 bucks for two eggs, toast and your choice of meat. The server was friendly.

Food was delicious and service was outstanding! We had 14 people in our party and this did not bother the wait staff in the least!

My wife and I both ordered the Chicken Greek Salad. For a salad, it was average...however, the warm pita bread that came with it was to die for. So very delicious! As for the place itself, it is very dated and dirty. The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. The inside needs some work, but other than that, not bad... More
