cute diner, decent food, inattentive service

We stopped here for dinner one night while we were camping in the area. The diner itself is adorable, very retro with outdoor seating. We opted for an outdoor table, and our waitress was very friendly. We happened to be there on $5 spaghetti and meatballs night, and that's what one of my... read more

After riding more than 5 hours me and my husband stumbled upon this diner. I'm not really a diner person but my husband was hungry and didn't leave me much of a choice. So glad he pulled our little car in! Outdoor seating, beer and truly great people that served or waited on us. The food was awesome. We will... More

I'm at the Birdseye Diner, sitting at a curbside table in the sunshine on a sleepy street. The menu offers the basics, fair prices and my food was super. I had a garden salad and BLT on sourdough bread...nice!

I know seems strange tho give a diner this accolade, when high end restaurants are perfecting Benedict's of all kinds, but it's true. I've had Benedict's everywhere. You might say I'm obsessed. This time there were four of us, one of whom really knows his food. Three of us ordered the Benedictand all four tried it. We all agree. The... More

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.
