We go to this diner every year after we camp and pack it in.... in the rain, in the POUNDING rain, no kidding, three years in a row! The people are wonderful, the service is great, and the food is definitely made with love. Generous portions of delicious made to order goodness always ease my soggy soul into a happy... More

The only thing positive was the the waitress was nice. There were 4 adults, 1 child, and 2 toddlers in our party. First the high chairs for the toddlers were filthy. They had spaghetti on the children's menu we asked if they could make it with any other shape pasta (something easier for the babies to pick up) We were... More

We ordered omelettes, which all appeared to have fresh ingredients and were sizable portions. In the process of asking the waitress if the corn muffins were made on site, and if they were just cornmeal, or contained flour (I have Celiac and can't eat wheat), the owner overheard and came over to talk to us. He was a very nice... More

Fresh locally grown food. No commercial grocery. Owner and staff friendly. Food was GREAT! Highly recommend. Corn muffins are REAL (Corn meal only, no wheat flour. Done the right way)

Our waitress was an older woman who was not very friendly, she actually threw our straws on the table. The food was pretty good, but I wouldn't go back after receiving that kind of service. We usually have very good experiences when we go to diners, but overall we found people in the Poconos to be pretty unfriendly.

Good food, good service, good prices. I like diners and this one is a gem. Nothing special to look at but the meal was great. I had Prime Rib and the cut was generous and it was done perfectly.

Traveled from Tannersville to this diner, and it was just what you would expect for breakfast. Decently priced, slightly underseasoned food, but service was good and the wait nonexistent. If I were in town, I'd probably go back, but I wouldn't drive out of my way again to go here.

I am generally easily impressed with food as is my boyfriend. I was not impressed by this diner and probably won't be back. It was slightly over priced and the food was less than mediocre. Our waitress, however, was extremely friendly and had us laughing the whole time!
