Pleasantly Surprised

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... read more

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

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

Stopped for lunch on our way from New Jersey back to Virginia. ?Restaurant was clean, food was good (nothing to write home about), and service was good. Bottom line: good restaurant if you're hungry and don't want fast food.

My wife and I stopped by for breakfast recently, on a Saturday morning. Sat down, had good service and coffee served up. The server took our order, so expecting a wait for breakfast to be served (French toast/ Flap Jacks) my wife took a restroom break. The food was already sitting on the table when she got back. After that,... More

We stopped for breakfast. The food wasn't bad and the service was ok but neither were great. The ice tea was old though and tasted like it had been made the day before instead of fresh that day. There seem to be some better choices.
