During our stay in Palmyra we ate at the Yellow Mills Diner twice. No fancy gourmet but great home made combinations of good food. The service was wonderful-especially if you get Robin as your waitress. Serving sizes were very large and the prices were low-$13.95 for a New York Strip Steak... read more

We really enjoy this roadside diner for a quick meal that is really tasty. Their eggplant Parmesan is better than many places with a much higher price tag. My daughter ordered waffles for dinner, which turned out to come with all kinds of gooey strawberries and whipped cream on top. She was in heaven eating them! (It looked more like... More

My husband and I gave them another chance. We have tried several times to try breakfast or dinner. The servers are always very nice and quick with response. The older hostess should retire as she very grumpy and yells at everyone no matter who is around. This always puts me in a very bad mood as mean people bit the... More

Family run with great food. Waitress and cook are brother/sister and care about customer satisfaction. Recommended items were great. Biscuits and chicken gravy great. Mashed potatoes are real, complete with lumps! On return trips we will probably eat all our meals with these folks.

We were here for a day and a half and ended up eating here twice! Our waitresses were fabulous on a professional and personal level. The food was like you'd imagine momma cookin' down home with large portions for a very decent price. The place itself has some wear and tear but who the heck cares-- when you like the... More

Service was great! Our waitress was was an absolute gem! So nice! Everyone was so nice! The food however was alright.My French fries were delicious- perfectly crunchy. Maybe we didn't order the right thing. I ordered continental chicken, too much cheese and pretty greasy. My chicken was over cooked. Our side salads had a bunch of water at the bottom-... More

I stopped here with a friend to have lunch yesterday. We split a Greek salad and an Italian Sausage Sandwich. Both were very good! I would go again! I am posting a picture of the building this diner is in, since the one published her is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG !

We stopped in here for the second time this past weekend, and we were amazed by the value you get for the dollar here. No, it will never be confused with gourmet fare, but who cares? For $9.99, I got a salad, a bowl of soup, bread, and a WONDERFUL dish of eggplant Parmesan that equaled the meal I received... More
