Lots of food

I've eaten at Dyar's about three times since I moved to Pendleton. The food has always been good. I've ordered take out trays once and I've eaten in twice. The fried chicken is very good. I also like the meat loaf. The turkey and dressing is tasty. Most of the vegetables are southern style and have... read more

I'm not sure how I missed out on this place the entire time I've worked at Clemson! The macaroni and cheese tastes just like my aunt's, and the chicken right out of the fryer tastes close to my mom's. The tea is sweet and the staff is friendly. We'll definitely go back.

Dyar's was a disappointment. I use to go to cafeterias with my grandmother. I have good memories of that. Dyar's menu is limited and reminded me of a school cafeteria (which is not a good memory). The food seemed like it was probably bought frozen, heated and served. I had the chicken which was bland. The servers are nice but... More

I went in there, the service was ok, very slow, high prices!! Would not come back. I thought I was going to eat actual homemade, but I'm sure most of it is frozen food.

This little hole in the wall was so worth the money and the drive. We went there for breakfast, and while the service was a little slow at first it was well worth it. The portions were large and kept us full for most of the day!

Good old diner breakfast and great coffee! Service was also very good. Nice old style place beats the chain breakfast spots hands down.

Dyar's is a family run diner that features meat and three lunch offerings every day except Saturday. The meats are predictable (in fact, you can get fried or baked chicken every single day). The other meats are fairly standard (chicken casserole on Monday, turkey & dressing on Wednesday, and fish on Friday). Problem is that if you don't eat the... More

I had a pretty delicious lunch at Dyer's. For the record, it should definitely be listed as the #1 restaurant in Pendleton. Great cafeteria meat and three. The strawberry cobbler was excellent.
