We ate breakfast at the Highway Diner about 9:30 am on a Saturday morning. They were very busy. We ate outside since the weather was nice. Food was good, the service took a while though.

Had breakfast before the second leg down to Florida. The Omelette South of the Border (ham, cheese, onions, mushrooms, jalapeno peppers, salsa, sour cream) with hash browns, wheat toast and black coffee was outstanding. Just the right fuel for an eight hour drive. Service was excellent. Great value. If you stay in one of the nearby hotels, skip breakfast and... More

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The staff is extremely friendly and quick to please. I love the burgers and sandwiches, but there is a good variety of meals to choose from and all are good.

The Good: good food, reasonable prices, quick pleasant service, clean and the old diner look. The bad: no knockout dishes, fewer healthy options. This place has the classic stainless steel diner look. It's clean and nicely decorated. The food is tasty enough but not amazing. The portions are large, the service is pleasant quick and southern. Its nicely located close... More

Very busy little diner. Has American type food. Homemade chicken vegetable soup was very good. My husband had a cheeseburger that he said was good although a bit overcooked. I had pie which was good. Many other comfort foods on the menu like meatloaf, chicken, hot dogs etc.

Classic diner--both good and bad. Highly recommended by the hotel--and within walking distance. The place was *packed*-- almost all the customers were "of an age." The wait staff was friendly but not so attentive--refills were hard to come by. The food was OK, and the menu was diverse enough to give you interesting choices. The sides were plentiful, you clearly... More

Sat at the bar and had meatloaf, collards and mashed potatoes. The potatoes and meatloaf were covered in brown gravy. The food was OK, in a bland, comforting way. My server was very friendly and we had a nice chat.

We were traveling and happened upon this place after staying in a nearby hotel, we stopped in for breakfast. Our server was VERY friendly and prompt! My eggs were cooked perfectly, my kids both enjoyed their food as well. We sat outside which was nice for a nice warm morning. Stop by for breakfast!
