Mnella's food is typical diner stuff - eggs anytime you want them, stuffed sandwiches. Service is good and food is fresh. Lots of carb options. Wide menu of usual diner options.

Great diner. I have been going here for years. Service is fast and efficient. The sandwiches are great as is the breakfast. The chicken pot pie is exceptional. The pastry chef is amazing . He could be on the Food Network. His desserts are sublime.

We went here on a weekend afternoon for a birthday lunch. It was really nice! The food was good, atmosphere was nice and the waiter was a pleasure to deal with.... We had a lovely time!

We've been to menial's many times over the years. It's alway busy when we visit, whether for luncher dinner. Many of the diners, whether families and senior citizens, appear to be regulars. There's always a large Sunday afternoon after-church crowd. Lot's of of the students, too, from the local colleges. It's got a large menu, but most of the dishes... More

Minellas Diner seafood is the best at a good price. Their broiled crabcake platter is awesome They also make a homemade Meatloaf Dinner which is excellent. You cant go wrong if you are looking for good food at a reasonable price.

Although there are other alternatives to eating here, Minella's is one of the few places that accommodates large parties upon arrival. Food is high quality and tasty. However, prices are higher than your average diner and the service isn't the nicest. We keep going back because it is easily accessible.

We've been going to Minellas for years on evenings when cooking seemed like too much of a chore...and sometimes lunch or breakfast. I've never really had a great meal there, but it's never terrible either. Standard diner fare, which a slight emphasis towards Greek and Italian specialties. The portions are large but as others have commented it's still a little... More
