Good little diner

We were staying at the Applewood in and stopped for a light lunch. Had two different soups, both excellent, nothing out of a can or thickened with flour. Prices reasonable and service friendly.

Average food at average prices. Only place in town. Caters to college and not locals . What more can be said!

Stopped by because it looked like a diner from the olden days (50's - 60's). Service was friendly. Burger was good. Buffalo wings were very good. Fries were fresh cut and the serving was so generous, I think I got the whole spud. They do have a couple of Vermont craft beers, I had the Otter Creek and I liked... More

We were in Castleton for a football game and stopped at the diner at 10 am for something to eat. We did not get served until 11:10 and when we did the food was not worth the wait. The scrambled eggs were barely warm and rubbery, bacon was fatty and under cooked and home fries were chunks of potato deep... More

Stopped in here while in town. The diner's menu was classic rather than creative, as was their food preparation. Nothing wrong here - everything we had was fine. But that was really about the extent of it. It was fine. Nothing that made you say "this is the best burger/salad/french toast/whatever I ever had!" Staff was not talkative but reasonably... More

I only allow myself to eat half of the eggs Benedict when I go out since I'm watching my diet, but the eggs Irish were so good I practically licked my plate clean!

Had breakfast here one day while my daughter was at the local college. Could have gone into Rutland, but I'm a sucker for a good diner, so I gave it a try. It was a great experience. The servers were friendly and accommodating. I sat outside at a sidewalk table, which was the perfect place to be on a beautiful... More

Restaurant selection is limited in this small town so the diner is one of the few options for lunch. Service was a little slow but servers were very friendly and good came out pretty quick. Enjoyed the meal but nothing much to say about it except it was good. Nothing to write home about and if your in town it's... More

I eat Eggs Benedict everywhere and these are always the best. I wait all winter to come up and enjoy them for a few short months. Service is always friendly and the test of the menu is great too. Kari had the blueberry pancakes which I loved and she liked. I will be happy all day thanks to the eggs.
