Fast service, good food and very affordable

It was just my husband and I eating for lunch and there was no wait time at all. The food was very good and the portions very big. We did notice that bigger parties were still waiting for their food.

We stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. They were packed. We waited about 10 minutes but the waitress was friendly and got us in as soon as possible. I was starved so I ordered the Hearty Meal. It stayed with me until suppertime! I got scrambled eggs, toast, 3 pancakes and hashbrowns. Everything was good and , like... More

Built in 1959 it still has the feel of an old time, non-corporate diner. If you're looking for high-end, white table cloth dining, don't go. But if you're hungry for some really good comfort food it's excellent. I had the hot turkey sandwich which was topped with gravy and covering the delicious stuffing. My girlfriend had a burger and it... More

I ordered the AYCE fried oysters and shrimp. You have to eat all of one thing before they'll bring a first serving of the other. The first 5 oysters were sadly overdone -- dried out and shriveled, ugh! I despaired! So, I wrapped 3 of them up in a napkin & stuck them in my purse -- so the waitress... More

We read reviews and stopped in on our way through town for dinner. Ok food, but not great. Seems like most folks eating there were regulars. If you are looking for quick simple food, with friendly service this will meet your needs. If you want more than that go somewhere else.

I stopped here with a friend and her daughter for dinner recently and was pleasantly surprised and somewhat amused by the restaurant. Service was good. Food was good. I was amused that when I asked what kind of steak cut was the Black Diamond steak and they were not sure what cut of steak it was. I was surprised when... More

We stopped by here on our way home from a college visit after reading some reviews on another website. This is one of those old-time roadside diners dating back to the 50's; however, the décor doesn't really have a 50's feel. More like something from the 70's; I noticed one ceiling fan (not in operation at the time), and those... More

I have not eaten at Top's Diner for about 2 years. The last 2 times we were there, we were very disappointed in the quality of the food. One time I had ordered a roast beef dinner, and the roast beef was so tough that I could not cut it with my knife. The last time we were there we... More

Hello, I really appreciate your taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor, and am sorry that your past experiences haven't been up to par. You may be happy to know that as far as the beef goes, we learned (too late) that one of my cooks who is no longer with us was not using the proper procedure for... More
