My wife and I spent 2 weekends--before and after an Alaskan cruise--in hotels near this restuarant. We make it a point to avoid franchised places when we can, and Dave's Diner is a stand alone place. The food was fabulous, freshly and quickly prepared. Also the wait staff were all clean, friendly and helpful without being "overbearing". The cost was... More

We were dropped off by our hotel shuttle (Holiday Inn Express) for dinner and they picked us up afterward. It was a comfy diner with good food to help us wind down after a day of travel.

Very close to the Hamton Inn, within walking distance. The hamburger was very average and so was the dinner salad. BUT, the Portuguese bean soup was very delicious and I really enjoyed it. The service in the bar was excellent.

The food was really good but it was in an older restaruant. Waitress was great and got our order right. Would eat there, again. I recommend. Walking distance to the Hampton Inn on 28th.

The service was great- very friendly staff. The food was good (not fabulous). We had pot roast, and also chopped steak. The chopped steak was a lot better than the pot roast. Portion size was large. The gravy was pretty bad. We would, however, try it again sometime. Hopefully, the gravy recipe will be changed by then.

Good value. Burgers, salads, fish, chicken. Easy to get to from our motel. Nice selection of brews. Wait staff very helpful and friendly. Short wait to get served. Check out menus on their website.

I've eaten here 3 times now... the first 2 times I thought I better try again in case it was an "off day". Well, just like in baseball - 3 strikes, you're out. I will say, location is fabulous - within walking distance or even a short shuttle/bus ride from several hotels along Hwy 99/International Blvd. Inside is filled with... More

Came for a quick breakfast the other day when leaving the airport on a road trip. Loved the memorabilia decorations and think that anyone traveling from outside of the United States would enjoy them immensely. The food was okay. Portions were ample.

Always eat here at least once to and from the airport. A great selection of food, fun atmosphere. The quality of the food is just average, except for breakfast, which is great. We always look forward to coming here.

We were looking for a non chain restaurant to have a meal after checking into our hotel. This place many would consider a dive type location. However it has a great staff, friendly, knowledgeable about menu. The chilli was the best I have had in awhile. My sandwich was new to menu but really good, the bacon grilled cheese. Oh... More
