The only issue was that on Saturdays they only serve breakfast all day and I was anticipating having a cup of their cheeseburger soup! Instead I settled for the grilled cinnamon bun and it was excellent. The food is prepared fresh and all by hand with care. A staple to the area and a must to eat at!

Delicious food and excellent service! The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating for our 16mo old. We felt welcome, well-fed, and enjoyed the decor and atmosphere. Highly recommended!

We actually visited Lawrence Park Dinor 1 year ago when a group of 7 of us visited Erie. The atmosphere was charming. The food was wonderful. I loved the way you could watch them make the food. It was very retro. The owners were so friendly and genuinely cared about your experience. It was a very refreshing visit with very... More

We stopped in when kismet found my husband and I both hitting on Lawrence Park, me on my in-dash GPS and he online at the exact same time. We figured it was meant to be. Are we glad we found it. Everything on the menu looked delicious so it was hard to decide, but he settled on a Reuben and... More

This place is great! Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. If you want an old style diner with fresh food and fun staff this is the place. Have to have the Greek fries!!

We had a rueben and turkey/bacon wrap. Fries reminded me of my dad's restaurant fries. All well made. Cute setting. Very fifties without trying. Corned beef very salty. Kraut good. Breakfast not served after 11 am. Pretty long ride from I90.
