Maybe we ordered the wrong things, but this place was good, not great. We had the spinach pie and the turkey club sandwich. The sandwich was great. The Spinach Pie was not very good. The picture in the menu looked very thin and crispy, but the actually thing was too thick. It was over an inch thick and basically all... More

Friendly staff and huge portions. Unfortunately, it was a huge portion dry, overcooked steak and cold, undercooked broccoli. Had to wait more than 10 minutes for something from the bar, twice. By the time we were half way through the meal, all drinks were empty and stayed that way. Had to ask the manager for the check as he flew... More

This restaurant is open 24 hrs. They have a full menu anytime. There was a little bit of a wait but the food is very good and so is the service. Worth the wait.

the cakes at this place are unbelieveable! It's open 24 hours and the menu selection is great. a slice of cake was $6.00 but it was large enough that all 4 of our party got a piece and we still had to take some home. the bakery showcase is amazing and the size of the cakes and the various flavors...

You walk into the restaurant and it certainly has the 'cafe' feel, especially with the vinyl seat covers. This place has a ridiculous menu, something like 10 pages...all genres of food, Mexican, Italian, Greek, American, sandwiches, wraps, seafood, you name it they probably have it. Their breakfast menu is substantial as well....I had the Jalapeno Hell Hole Omelet which was... More

Such a large menu and everything is excellent. Service is excellent as well. Deserts are to die for. Can't believe I've never eaten here before

I've never seen a more extensive menu in a diner nor such huge servings and all tasty too. The waitresses are quick and friendly. It was a really enjoyable experience even if after breakfast here we had to skip lunch.

Went for some late night food after a Chattanooga Lookouts game. This place is hopping. Line of people out the door. You are escorted into the lobby of the attached hotel to wait your table. I suggest you stick your head in the bar area for some late night karaoke too, if you don't mind cigarette smoke. Diner food served... More
