Don't be scared off by the recent change. This is now Athens Greek restaurant which is owned by the same people as the Southside. The food is delicious and the service is friendly. It is also BYOB which is a great cost saver. I love the gyro(of course) but the lamb and fish (only on Fridays) are great as well.... More

I have become a regular at this nice little restaurant. As a diner, its only flaws are location/parking and the reputation it had in the past. Nicely remodeled, it is a clean and tidy place to dine. The staff is pretty good at balancing attention and privacy and the speed of the cooks sometimes beats drivethrough. Hands down, though, it... More

We used to go to this place a long time ago, and were curious about the "new" owners. We went for breakfast on a weekend, and were very pleasantly surprised. It's a diner, so it's not fancy, but the people are very friendly; the service is prompt and attentive, and the breakfast is a great value. We will certainly return.

The places was just nasty. The food was horrible. The staff was standing in the middle of the place eating food and all the staff was eating off one plate while people were trying to get their own food. The place was dirty. I will never go there again and I wouldn't advise anyone else to do so. Honestly I... More

I was in town for graduation from MVNU and we picked The High from the list on our GPS. Walked into to a cute blast from the past. Our server was friendly and helpful. She suggested the special, a meatloaf sandwich (homemade) and fries. It was AMAZING!! Peanut butter pie for desert. If you are looking for good food, friendly... More

I have not been here for 40 years. The restaurant is beautifully renovated, honoring the original history. The greek omlet was delicious. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. Next trip to Mount Vernon, I will definitely eat here.

Stopped here May 2012, did not have "High" expectations. However, it was the best shredded chicken sandwhich I have had in my life, and trust me, I seek them out. The shredded chicken was homemade, not the runny stuff from a can that you will find up the road at the Dairy (who does have the best ice cream), they... More

Love this place now. Was gone for a while and this used-to-be dive has been re born! Not a place for drunken fools or morning hang-overs, but a place you can take your family. Thank you who ever did this. Will eat here again!

After being closed for two years, this Mount Vernon landmark recently reopened under new management with HUGE IMPROVEMENTS all around! While the cafe food received a "very good" rating and the service was at least average or better, it is the appearance of the establishment itself that deserves countless kudos. From the removal of the false ceiling (which unveiled beautiful... More
