Very good breakfast...again

Nice sized clean hometown type place. Lots of locals, great value for a satisfying meal. I had a specialty omelet which was 3 eggs cooked perfectly and loaded with cheese, salsa which gave it a nice kick. The rye toast was fine and the home fries were just right. Coffee is good and kept filled... read more

Went out to dinner with the family to try out this restaurant for the first time. Our food did not have much taste to it. I ordered the veal cutlet with gravy and was let down by it. Our waiter also seemed more concerned with his friends at another table than our needs. Probably won't be visiting again

Went in for breakfast around 11am there weren't many people in the restaurant. I was seated right away and the waitress came over to see if I was ready. Once I ordered I only saw her when my food was ready and waited for 10 mins after I was done for my check. I was out of water the whole... More

We were seated promptly, and the waitress took beverage orders immediately. The diner has a large menu to choose from. The food is good, with medium portions at reasonable prices. The place is clean, spacious and usually bustling. The staff was attentive and provided good service.

the waitress was fantastic and quick. The food is usually great but this time they (I guess the management) changed the wonderful thick sweet potatoes fries into the crappy fast food skinny fries. This is a major mistake in my book since I go there regularly due to the service, prices and the SWEET POTATO FRIES!!! The gyro (greek food)... More

My wife and her friend ordered Greek omelets after being told by the waitress they contained spinach, fresh tomatos and feta cheese. The omelets were served with only fresh tomatos. We had to get up from the table to track down our waitress whose solution to the problem was to bring a dish of feta cheese cubes to the table.... More

The B&B we stayed at recommended this as a good local restaurant, and they were right. It's diner food that is a cut above average, with very large portions and friendly service. Many of the dishes reflect to local cuisine, so that was nice. It's definitely a decent, very kid-friendly meal.
