We stopped by mid afternoon for a scoop of ice cream. They were kind of busy so we sit at the counter and were waited on and served very quickly. Placed seemed very clean and the menu looked pretty good. The next time we are in the area we plan to stop by for a meal.

Stop for lunch mainly because of the name. Ordered Philly Cheese and it was in a small roll . Wife ordered Philly Steak and it was Steakums with mostly onions. Very sad. With name a person could be average with food and service and do well. Unfortunately I don't see that happening.

This is really old diner complete with an eat-up counter. The food was fabulous!! My husband had a fried pork chop sandwich and I had a steak cheese sandwich. Both were 5 stars! The service was not fast as they appeared to hand make everything as it's ordered. We watched the young chef cook our order.

We stopped for lunch today. To be fair....the waitress said they were short staffed. However, it took 20 minutes to get seated when there were open tables.

A good clean place to eat if you're going to eat on main street. Not one of my favorites but I have been there a few times with no problems to complain about. Its geared a bit toward the tourist.

Couldn't decide between several of the places on downtown Main. Ended up choosing the worst place possible. First the service was horrible. Waited almost 40 min for our order. There were only a few tables being serviced. The cook spent more time waiting on her family who were seated at the bar. The one server never checked back with us.... More
