Great Place To Stop For Lunch & Dinner

I Have been coming here for years and think the food is above average. The Egg Salad with Curry is delicious with a side of Potato Salad and pickle. The Steak is also delicious with cut potatoes, peppers/onions. Honestly, I do not think you will get a bad meal here. The only issue I do have... read more

This is a upscale dinner with a great atmosphere. I eat here once in while and mostly everything I have eating, especially seafood are great and flavorful. My favorite is the Chilean sea bass sandwich.

Made a quick stop here for lunch and the burger was perfect. In the days where there are a lot of burger joints around I think city limits has most of the best. I would highly recommend this place.

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 a bit deafening but... 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.
