The last in a long line of owners who were unable to make a go of it, probably due to location and demographics.

I ate here upon traveling to Pottstown for business. I was really disappointed in the attitude of the staff and the price of the food.

Typical dinner & nothing special about breakfast, not sure about lunch or dinner. Relatives in area not impressed. Food was OK but did notice, if you were a local, you got a lot better service than if the staff did not know you. I realize this is a local joint, but you wonder how much care they take with your...

Had breakfast there on a Friday morning. The waitesss was friendly and attentive. The food was what you expect in classic diner food...and a solid value for the money. Some of the furniture showed lots of wear and tear.

This place is a classic diner but there arent any VIPs, Pottstown is another sad american story of a forgotten town holding on... but the staff was nice, food was okay, no need to rush back, but no surprises is good too.

Standard diner fare. I've had breakfast there a few times, and it's nothing spectacular. The diet coke has a strange musty taste to it. Eggs are ordinary--once or twice it hasn't tasted fresh. It's close by, and there's not much else around. Service is good and friendly and lots of local color, which is why I'm rating it with a... More

FWIW, my sister hates this place: thinks the service is incompetent and may or may not have had a problem w/ our bill on 9 Jul 11. I don't mind it; it's a diner, and the food and selections reflect that. Had a nice turkey sandwich for lunch—comes w/ chips. This is the former Dempsey's Diner, which was a Pottstown... More
