A Step Up For Sure!

I agree with Len L...this is not your average diner. It's really a hot spot Diner. The menu has lots of creative items. And they are more than willing to prepare off the menu items for you. It's true it can be impossibly busy, parking can be difficult at lunchtime and the noise level can be... read more

Always liked City Limits. Then there was a renovation. Looks nice. That's it. Service is disappointing. They do not notice nor seem to care. Not just me. Friends say the same. Pity. Menu OK.

Very nice restaurant for families and couples. It's also kid-friendly. The menu is huge, and the food is very tasty. While the service is somewhat slow, the wait is acceptable because the waiters come around and tell you when your meal will be served. The decor is clean and modern. The perfect place to stop in after the theater or... More

The food is consistently good, not what you would expect from a "diner." But the service we received was just indifferent. We requested a coffee refill when our breakfast came - it should not have been necessary to ask - and the reaction was like we were an inconvenience to the server. We didn't feel like Cheers where every was... More

We love City Limits. It has a comfortable, nostalgic, family-oriented feel,, but the food is a cut above "diner" quality. The baked goods are especially good, as are the "breakfasts." Recommend the homemade chocolate pudding, salmon salad, chocolate chip pancakes, and "Leghumper" beer. Meals are hearty--come hungry.

Yes, it's generally diner food, but very good diner food. What I can say is that I've eaten here often, I've never had a bad meal, and I've always experienced good service.

We decided to meet our daughter and granddaughters for a quick visit/lunch at a central meeting point. After shopping in some local stores we drove to the City Limits Diner for lunch. The place is clean, has friendly staff and people and good food.

The food here is really good, and it's relatively cheap. If I want a quick, good meal, then I come to City Limits Diner. The pasta is great, and they serve breakfast at all times!
