Sage has never disappointed me or my family. Portions and prices are always right on. My favorite "go to" on the menue ~ The Happy Waitress and the Prime Rib Souvlaki....YUMMY!

The staff can be hit or miss depending on the season, meaning the amount of travelers that stop, but we've never had an excessively long wait for our food.

Breakfast served all day. Waitstaff is AWESOME! Food is yummy. The waiter Duran knew what you wanted before you even ordered it and remembered you and what you ordered from you previous visit. He was seriously amazing but he had to go off to college. The manager is great. Everyone is really nice and the food is great.

Sage Diner, in Salisbury, MD is one of our favourite restaurants. They have an extensive menu, the food is always hot and tasty and the waitservers are very efficient. One of my favourite meals is their chicken parmesan with spaghetti. My favourite salad is their Greek salad. Their soups and desserts are delicious. And, we are always impressed with the... More

We were driving to Virginia Beach on Rt. 13 and didn't see a restaurant for over an hour until we came upon the first restaurant open which happened to be the Sage Diner. We had six in our party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast/lunch served to us by Steve (Jambr) who was outstanding. We liked it so much we... More

Good old fashioned breakfast with plenty on the plate. Large restaurant with lots of seating and plenty of hot coffee.

We stopped at the Sage Diner for lunch on a cold, windy, rainy May 1st day 2015. The homemade Manhattan clam chowder soup was so salty it was virtually not edible. I skimmed the generous lumps of veggies out of the broth. Generous house salad was excellent and very fresh and crispy. Service was very friendly and warm. Pricing was... More

We stopped here on a road trip and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and large portions at such a reasonable price. We had the broiled flounder stuffed with crabmeat and the chicken florentine as entrees. The chicken noodle soup was homemade and delish as was the crab soup. These were off of the 2 for $16.99 menu! We've... More

This local diner is conveniently located on 13 N. Great stop this morning! Many locals, specials , great prices and very friendly service with a smile. This is definitely small town diner experience. Try the sweet potato waffle -delicious. I'll give it a thumbs up!!!

I am a local who has been to this restaurant many times. I have tried breakfast, lunch and dinner in hopes of finding a great meal! I will look elsewhere! While the portions are good, the quality of the meals are average at best! I find this is true when you go into a restaurant that has 100s of items... More
