Sparkling Diner

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

We have eaten here three times now and each time I would rate the food as good, but not great. The service was good and the wait staff is friend. Salad bar has a wide variety of choices. The prices are reasonable and the amount of food is generous. Overall I would say that John's is a good place for... More

Wife and I stopped here for lunch today. It was a Thursday and not many cars in the lot which can be a bad thing. We both ordered sandwiches. I got the sliced Turkey with Bacon and she got the BLT. Both were just your typical sandwiches so I can't really address the hot meals. We were seated quickly and... More

The entrance to the restaurant summed up what the overall atmosphere of the restaurant would be, I was greeted by a cockroach on a lobby floor that had not been been cleaned. Once inside the restaurant, the carpeted floors appeared to have not been cleaned for 20 years, the bathroom was the same, appearing to never had been cleaned nor... More

I've stopped at this diner a number of times and have always been satisfied. The portion sizes are good and the food is well prepared. The service is always good.

My wife and I met for breakfast and got exactly what it is named. The food was traditional diner food, nothing to rave about. The service was prompt at first but got slower as a few more tables came in but no big deal since we were lost in conversation. The fancy part is true this place is flashy and... More

Good menu selections and tasty food. Split pea soup was very tasty. My friend ordered turkey and stuffing like Thanksgiving dinner. It came with cranberry jelly and gravy. The crab cakes looked good with two made on-site crab cakes of respectable size, but I was disappointed with too much starchy filling. Bigger pieces of lump crab coated the outside of... More

Been here many times and it's a reliable diner breakfast spot. The food is average but don't get distracted by the plain and fancy sides. Diner vs. Dining Room, no difference either way. Steak and eggs means something resembling a steak, but the hash is good and portions are decent sized. Nothing special, just a diner. Ate dinner here once,... More
