We were craving a SE PA breakfast and this place hit the mark. Quick service, well executed eggs, golden hash browns, crispy Scrapple and Juicy Pork Roll for a fair price. Simple and delicious. Our plates went back clean.

This is a typical diner with diner food and a never ending menu. Food is not great but honest, as are the prices. The Panini's were fresh and generously filled, coffee was brewed fresh by the friendly staff. I would recommend it for breakfast or lunch. Check out the sweets in the bakery display.

Greeted at door by pleasant host. Diner was very crowded on this Sunday morning. Very friendly waitress appeared asking our drink choices. Constantly checking back with more coffee during our short wait for breakfast. Meals were very good and pancakes were excellent. We were back for lunch 2 days later and had the same waitress who remembered us. WOW! She... More

I'm not sure where the fancy part is, but, lit up and decorated like a casino this place is all about the fun. Our excellent waitress, Lisa, brought the perfectly fried pickles and the salad bar was well stocked with lots of fresh and interesting items. It can be a bit high energy but the food quality was great, the... More

We weren't too impressed with this diner based on an experience with them a few years ago. But we visited for breakfast and found everything was good. The fod was tasty and the service was quick.

I love a nice, shiny diner with lots of metal, and this place sparkles. There's even a juke box at the booths. Fabulous Greek specialities, huge portions, a salad bar, vast menu, and good service. No complaints and will be back for more.

We will only come here for breakfast now. That's because we tried dinner here and it was not good. We ordered the meatloaf and the steak. Our side dishes and salad were fine. The steak was cooked to the point that it was like shoe leather and the meatloaf was tasteless. They seem to be able to cook eggs and... More
