Great little diner. And so convenient to hotel. Prices are great and you do not have to order a large meal.

Food was great and and this is a family diner. You feel special due to the attention given by the staff

I staying at the hotel next door and went there for takeout. The person who waited on me was very friendly and gave good suggestions of what I should try since it was my first time there.

I had dinner here. The place was clean and the food was fresh! I had a salad and it was great. I am on a gluten free diet, and the waitress took my order with ease. I would go back if I was in the area.

Oh, my goodness! The foods in the fridge cases looked SO good, especially the desserts. There was a great looking baklava, no, didn't try it, or any other of the fab desserts there. Just didn't have time. I did purchase a delicious Ruben sandwich for my flight. It was divided so it was easier to manage. The pickle was packaged... More

I was stuck here, no place other than Denny's to eat. It was not horrible, but it wasn't very good either. Was it better than Denny's, sure. but overall slow service and a bizzare place. I will not be back.

This place was horrible. On a Saturday morning two out of three orders were unbeatable. . The owner literally had to go on the grill and redo the meals just to not lose the business.

We walked to the diner from our hotel. Better alternative to some chain restaurants. A little bite of a wait for our food but it was very good when we got it. They also give a 10% discount if you show your room key!

My fiancé and I had to stay at the hotel next to this diner yesterday so we decided to have dinner. The prices are great, and the food was good. Portions are huge and we weren't able to finish everything but all in all, it was a great experience. Thank you!
