We have eaten here before and have never been disappointed. CLASSIC STAINLESS STEEL DINER FROM THE GOOD YEARS ! Whenever we go to Vermont we always stray from Route 4 to stop here for a bite. We were in Rutland for the National Railroad Historical Society ( NRHS) convention so we went to the Birdseye only 8 miles from the... More

Staying on Lake Bomboseen we were looking for a interesting place for breakfast and this fit the bill perfectly. The decor was classic diner and was very cool. The staff was very friendly and efficient. My wife had the Popeye omelette which she enjoyed except for the canned mushrooms. She thought they should have been fresh. The homemade bread option...

Out on Saturday for a cruise and stopped at this diner for lunch. Friendly staff,outdoor seating, neat and varied menu. From traditional burgers to lasagne and veggie wraps. It seemed to also be a locals place. Everyone was friendly. Hop on rte 4 to castleton for a neat treat.

I've made Kari a convert! She's no longer satisfied with just sampling my Benedict. Now she has to order her own. It'sstill delicious. You don't expect that from a little dinner, but there's is the best I've tried. Service is still fast and friendly and the coffee very good.

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.

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
