Milkshakes and meatloaf

Yes! Both milkshakes and meatloaf were consumed. Meatloaf reminded me of grandmas...large portion, delicious and priced right. The milkshakes billed at 50s style and thick and satisfying

The Neptune continues to have good food. I sometimes question the sanitation. I noticed that no one in the kitchen was wearing hair restraints. I wonder if the inspectors got them on this. The prices have really gone up, unreasonable so. Not as great as it was.

My husband and I were craving a juicy burger and found this diner on the way home from a holiday. The burgers were delicious and the waitress was very attentive, but not hawking over us. My biggest disappointment was no pickle with my burger and fries. My husband didn't get one with his meal either. The menu says fries and... More

The food was great but my family barely saw our server. Most restaurants I enjoy the servers can't take care of you enough but I had to try to track down our server to get a box and my check. They do have awesome meatloaf but the service needs work.

Had breakfast here on a cold windy morning. There could not have been any better sanctuary. Absolutely great breakfast, service was attentive, portions large and price was reasonable. Neptune's has an extensive menu; scrapple and cream chipped beef were especially good. This is a destination restaurant, a must when in Lancaster.

Neptune Diner was featured on the "Meatloaf Paradise" episode of the Food Paradise series. Naturally I wanted to try the meatloaf when I visited. Unfortunately, I stopped in too early. Breakfast was all that was available. The meatloaf wasn't ready yet. Instead I ordered the Chipped Beef Melt - a three egg cheese omelet with homefries covered with creamed chipped... More

I love diners. More so then the chain restaurants. There's something about diners that just makes me feel comfortable. Maybe its the laid back feeling or just the atmosphere its self, I don't know really but I've always enjoyed diners. Anyway...... Neptune diner is one of my favorites for many reasons they serve breakfast all day and there crab cakes... More

We stopped at Neptune on our way to visit F & M University. With the exception of parking, this is a classic american diner. The staff is friendly, service and food are fine. We will go here every time we visit Lancaster.
