I would go here only for the breakfast food or the pork or desserts. Other then that it's ok. Would be excellent if there was better hospitality. Make sure though you have plenty of time, it's a bit slow

We stopped in here on our way home from Gatlinburg, we were having lunch and it was very expensive for what we got. The quality was also just not there. Will not return, sorry guys but this place needs work.

Hard to respond not knowing what or when you dined. This is not what diners tell us at the tables, at the register. Perhaps we failed to review our menu with you that is pretty extensive to help you find a better price. Lots of breakfast options at $4-7 using extra large eggs, Thick Applewood Bacon, great pancakes. Lunch/sandwiches/suppers at... More

While on vacation, we called up some family friends that we hadn't seen in a while and asked if they wanted to meet in central location for dinner. This is where they suggested and I am glad they did. The food was great and reasonably priced. The service was extremely friendly and fast. The decorations and theming was fun. The... More

I love the feel of this old skool style restaurant. I had an omelet breakfast and pancakes that was really good. The work staff is really friendly and made my experience there very enjoyable.

The atmosphere is very friendly and the food is excellent. All the help stopped by the table to make sure everyone was taken care of. The price was in line with everything in the area.

We always appreciate honest feedback, here or directly in THE DINER. There are times when we could be faster, at slam times and with foods that take take longer to prepare fresh for you.

The service was great, everyone was very friendly. The food was also very good and had reasonable prices. This is a place we will visit again if we are in the area. I highly recommend the milkshakes as well.

service was good & food was freshly cooked & delicious. Both my biz associate & I had the 2-2-2 (2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of toast) for $3.99. Neat atmosphere with a jukebox. "Happy Days" feel to the restaurant. Locally owned.
