Basic diner

Basic diner menu & food. The applewood smoked bacon was delicious. Service was great. Close to the train station so a good place to eat before your trip

The Iron Skillet was just ok, nothing special. We had breakfast here. I had the sausage gravy, and it honestly seemed like it was not homemade. Our local diner in Jersey has better. Kind of disappointed, but it wasn't awful, just ... blurg...as Liz Lemon would say.

It's ok for breakfast. Nothing special. Used to be an old pizza joint. Staff was very slow. Very genetic

Country diner atmosphere. Service very good and friendly. We had breakfast for 4 people. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The portions were bigger than expected. Very good quality. I especially enjoyed the southwestern omelette.

We've been here twice. Good food, reasonable prices, and great service. Right in the middle of downtown.
