The diner has quick, friendly service. The food is delicious (I especially loved the home fries). The seating is really close because the diner is small, so having a private conversation will never happen here. Also, it's a bit tricky to find because it's attached to a Rita's water ice and that is the first thing you see when driving... More

Had a great breakfast on my last day in town here. Traveled with my husband and our teenage son and both enjoyed their breakfast here. Food is very good and portions are large.

This is a very good place to have breakfast or lunch. They open at 5 AM and close at 3 PM. They have a red and white 1950's decor. On this trip we had grilled hot dogs. I have eaten there many times while I have been in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The prices are reasonable. It is diner food. We arrived... More

Lunched there yesterday & was disappointed. The burger turned out to be "barbequed" beef - I couldn't pick it up and had trouble using a knife & fork because it was served on a sheet of paper in a basket. A dish would have been a nice gesture by the establishment, and would have made the experience much more tolerable.... More

My husband, mother, and I stopped by this diner for lunch on a road trip based on the reviews others had submitted. Yes, it was busy with regulars but it really wasn't our kind of food plus we felt neglected by the server. If you enjoy sandwiches served on white bread or "soft as a marshmallow" wheat bread (my mom's... More

After a previous bad experience with a franchise restaurant while in Billtown and looking for a good local eatery, this was highly recommended by other trippers. And they were right. Watch if your using an on-line map site because it gave me the wrong side of the street but has a very noticeable sign visible from 3rd st. It is... More

Fun place for families looking for a change from fast food. From Soup to Sandwiches and fries we had no complaints.

Stopped here after a stay at the local Holiday Inn. I laugh to think that I almost went to McDonald's for breakfast due to time constraints. This place is cheap, friendly, and efficient. It was fun to watch the local diners interact. Everyone in the place seemed to know each other. Our food was excellent, and i have had longer... More

Each Sunday we eat at Dolly's. It is reasonably priced and they cook breakfast just to my liking. The service is quick and friendly.
