"Good Comfort Food"

This is a little diner tucked away off Third Street in Williamsport, you have to keep alert for the Rita's, it is located on the back of the Rita's building. The interior is neat and clean, and the wait staff are very friendly and treated us like long lost cousins. The menu has a very good variety... read more

This place is crowded at lunch time. The service is fast and the waitresses are well trained. The place is clean. It is has red that remind me of my mother's kitchen growing up in the early 1960's. I had a sandwhich, baked beans and ice tea. The prices are reasonable. It is a must see place.

This little restaurant slightly off the Golden Strip is a delight. It Reminds me of a 50's diner with the juke box and music selections. The menu is just about anything you would want from bacon and eggs to sandwiches, soup, specials of the day. It is "home cooking" at it's best.

This is a nice, Clean Diner. However, where most places I have been too that are similar give you eggs, toast and home fries at a great price, here you must pay extra for the home fries. The bacon my husband got was under cooked. It took a long time for the waitress to get to us, she walked by... More

Dolly's serves breakfast all day and went in around noon to get a late breakfast. Ordered two pancakes with eggs and home fries. One pancake would be enough - they are gigantic, and I was so looking forward to these. But they were dry and heavy, even a lot of butter and the cold, gooey syrup couldn't make these better....

My husband and I are frequent flyers. We love their breakfast sandwiches and cream-dried-beef or as I call it SOS. Always great service and the waitresses have a good memory as to what you want. Recommend to anyone who likes that diner setting.

Is there such a thing as too much bacon? If you order the French toast with bacon from this diner it is. I'm not complaining. I've just never had so much bacon that I couldn't finish it. The next time, and there will be an next time, I will. Love the place.
