Gets the job done

Lamb gyro was on the bland side and light on the serving size. Salad was well prepared. Chocolate cake was very good. Returned for lunch. Burger was good. Bread pudding was excellent. Service on both occasions was very good.

Went on a date-night here with my husband so we could stay close to home. This was a night to forget. While it is a 'diner', it isn't a cheap, cheesy type of place. The menu, to me, is too large and varied, prices aren't cheap, the food is mediocre (although the spinach dip is really good, but should come... More

We have eaten there many times and we always enjoy it. We have something different each time and have never been disappointed. The menu is extensive, the food is delicious and the service is always top notch. The only drawback is that it can be a little noisy at times, but we have become accustomed to it.

Great location and dining accommodations. Best wait staff we encountered and apparently great management. Clean, great menu assortment and everything is made on premises from bread & pastries to soups to homemade ice cream.

Great food - great service! Always a nice place for breakfast. It's normally crowded so you should make reservations especially on weekends. Portions are good - I always leave full!!

This place is really one of the best diners around. Food very tasty and if for any reason you are disatisfied, they will correct. We visit about once a month and I fine the food, service and overall quality outstanding.

Disappointed in our lamb gyro and Greek salad. The atmosphere was family oriented but not inviting, and the service was good. Never had a Greek salad with out Greek olives in it. They did have a burger selection that looked good as it was served to other tables.

Waitress had an attitude service was bad manager was cocky and demanding for a restaurant food was overpriced to many things with marinates and slimy soap tasted like it was a week old overall had gas for the last twelve hours McDonalds would have been a better choice. Don't waste your time going here. Disappointing.

I thank all guests for their feedback, good or bad. In this case, I sent a message right away to Rob to apologize for their experience, and to get further details, so we can figure out what went wrong, and correct it. He has not yet replied but we look forward to his response. In the interim, I would encourage... More
