Service was good

Portion was small for the price. Had great variety of desserts. And was nice it is open 24 hours. The building too cold was not comfortable.

I've heard the area around here is known as not the best. I am staying in one of the nearby hotels, and I wanted to have a quick dinner. The diner had specials on the menu, and I ordered one of the specials. It came with a soup or salad and a second side. The portions are big, and the... More

I'll go back...breakfast delivered to... More

We were staying at a nearby airport hotel and looking for dinner the Philly Diner looked ok from the outside, so we gave it a try. Meatloaf was dry, Moussaka seemed more like an open face eggplant hamburger scramble and the Cheese steak was tough.

Stopped in for breakfast one morning near our hotel. Enjoyed a very good meal with good service. Price was very competitive to other places. Our food came out hot and at the same time. Waitress was very attentive and provided refills quickly.

The Chicken Parmesan was tasty, but the Chicken Scampi was not. Pasta had a bitter taste and the butter sauce was like lemn water. The dessert case looked fabulous, but the lemon meringue pie was old wth the meringue sliding off the curd. The server was super nice and accommodating.
