If you want a great substantial size meal for a reasonable price, you must stop at John's Plain N' Fancy Diner in Quakertown located on Route 309 going south! One of the largest and heaviest menus in the area with numerous selections to choose from! Great lunch specials for $6.95 with desert and above all just great "Plain N' Fancy"... More

My wife and I have eaten here many times before, but haven't been back for a few years. Last night we decided to stop in for dinner, big mistake. I ordered broiled scallops and my wife ordered stuffed broiled shrimp. I started eating the scallops and realized that they were all the same size and had a weird texture. Looking... More

This diner looks great from the outside and not so bad inside. The service was great, the food was just ok. Don't try the crab cakes & my scrapple was like a greasy sponge. I think there's way too much on the menu. Perfecting a few items is always better than too much variety. My last issue is the bathroom,... More

Very good breakfast selection at good prices. Quite busy particularly with regulars. They have lots of combination breakfast deals which make for excellent values.

While this dinner was clean, it left much to be desired as far as the food & service goes. My husband had the Mediterranean Pork Chops, Potato soup & the salad bar. The salad bar was nice & the soup was okay, but the pork chops were dry & tough, with not much flavor at all. I ordered the Mexican... More

We stopped in Yesterday for a late lunch. There were several other people in the diner. To my surprise they started sweeping floors & raising dust while we checked the menu. Shortly after our food was served they gentleman started to mop the floor next to our booth. Nothing like the smell of wet mop with your lunch. I am... More

I love diners. Period. Some are great, some are terrible- and some are in between. This one was good- and we would go back. We were about half-way from home and Hamburg, PA where the Cabela's is, and we wanted to stop and get something to eat. Some quick research of restaurants in Quakertown first brought me to Quakertown Family... More

Having been the first time I have eaten at this restaurant - you will have to use your own judgment on my review. We ate at John's Plain N Fancy on this Mother's Day, of course there was a long waiting line, but something we expected on this day. We were seated quickly (there were 3 of us). Pity the... More

I visited John's Plain and Fancy on probably one of their busiest days of the year -- Mother's Day. This may explain some of the issues we had. It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to take our order, but we did have someone bring us coffee in the meantime. I could tell the poor waitress was frazzled! She... More
