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!

Food was cooked well and fast. My girlfriend said the pancakes were really good. Scrapple was a little thin for me; still tasty. Kids ate everything. I definitely would eat breakfast here again.

We stopped by there after a few days skiing and they were open on jan 3 even though it was 4 degrees outside. Half-chicken/hen was fresh and tasty as was the grill cheese sandwich and baked ziti. Only odd thing was the hot dog which had zero taste - it was the strangest thing we had ever put in our... More
