The menu definitely has something for everyone, serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. The portions are very large and the prices reflect that. Everything is well prepared and very good. Personally, I would like smaller portions and smaller prices. I also think there are a few too many tables, it can feel very crowded. But judging by the... More

Good menu selections for everyone's tastes. The fact that you can get breakfast all day is a plus too. Only downside is that if it is cold outside it will be cold inside. Don't take a seat by a door you will freeze.

Had brunch here a few times. If you breakdown the food, it's just breakfast and you can get that anywhere and it's hard to mess up. But what you don't get is that they have taken breakfast food to a whole other level. It's a little pricey, but the portions are generous and most dishes are big enough to share.... More

My husband and I went for lunch today and I was surprised at how large the restaurant is. Unfortunately it is very crowded because the tables are close together. The servers are very professional and knowledgable about the menu which takes diner food to the next level. I had an ahi tuna burger for $11.95 which was absolutely delicious. My... More

We were there for breakfast this morning. We go every so often because the food is pretty good. So this morning we got there early and got a seat. The restaurant is not big and for anyone stuck sitting against the isle it's a constant battle of moving your chair for people coming back and forth. For those against the... More

Food is always good. Best breakfast in the area, but not cheap. Seating is very tight and the place can get very noisey.

I had been hearing about the Classic Diner for a while and I finally decided to go on a Sunday. Much to my surprise it actually was not busy, so my review is not even tainted by the long waits that people often experience here. I got to try a French toast dish which was good, and then I split... More

We arrived at this place on a Sunday morning--very crowded but we were able to grab two seats at the counter. So glad we did as the dining room tables looked very close together. No complaints on service as the staff was very friendly and attentive. No complaints on the food either. The bacon was the best I have ever... More

We have been to the Classic Diner for breakfast, lunch and brunch. The atmosphere is ok, but very tight and the seats aren't super comfortable. There is usually a line for the slightly better than average menu. The service can be just fair, so be sure to ask for everything you want when your server takes your order. (They sometimes... More
