Lawrence Park Dinor

We were there on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful, poured coffee almost immediately upon sitting down. Breakfast was good, hot and served right off the grill.

After reading so many glowing and positive reviews, we went 25 minutes out of our way to have lunch here. Arriving at 3:05, we were rather surpised to see an empty parking lot. We got out of our car and walked to the front door ... only to see they closed at 3 pm! There were several other restaurants nearby,... More

Take a tiny little diner and plop it down in the middle of small town America, have a wonderful family run the operation and make good food at affordable prices - this is that place. Lori, the owner, made us feel welcome the moment we walked our drenching wet selves in the door. Don't leave without ordering some homemade pie... More

Found this joint online while traveling and worth the detour from the interstate! So much food & all of it delicious dinor fare- epically the dessert! Service from Shanna was fun & up beat plus Kyle manning the line & whipping up pies would make it worth another pit stop!

Excellent food, friendly people. Great old fashioned "dinor" experience. Greek omlet is enormous, enough for two people to enjoy.

Hadn't eaten in a good diner for a long time and this was perfect. The western egg sandwich was delicious and the fries were plentiful and hot. Homemade pies but we were too full for dessert.

Considering the rave reviews in TripAdvisor, our lunch experience was less than expected. While we did enjoy the atmosphere, we were puzzled as to why LP Dinor would consider it OK to serve an order of onion rings with half of the order extremely over fried (nearly burned), but topped with nicely fried, tasty onion rings. Also, we are not... More

My son goes to school in Erie, and we are always looking for good places to eat when we visit. I found this Dinor on tripadvisor, it has atmosphere, delicious food and great service. Shanna, helped us and Kyle, cooked our food! We had the tuna melt, Greek hot dog and Ruben, all were top notch!

The food is great and the soups and pies are yummy. .Kyle is an artist on the grill while Shannon and Missy wait on customers with enthusiasm. They absolutely want you to have a great dining experience.
