Friendly Staff, Good Food and Excellent Decor

Loved my two visits to Dave's Diner. Highly recommend the Mother Load (gigantic and flavorful chicken fried steak) and any of their burgers. Service was excellent and the servers had a great sense of humor. TIP -- the lounge (bar) is in the back and features some outstanding local brews. They... read more

Our hotel is right around the corner from Dave's. We went here on our 3rd night and the 4th night and now our last night. We love the food and the wait staff is fun and friendly. Food choices are from steaks, to chops to amazing salads and soups. The desserts are big and awesome. I like that they offer... More

Just a short walk from the Hampton inn 28th. A great place to grab a brew and walk back to hotel! Staff friendly. Fun atmosphere.

We were directed to Dave's by a fellow cruise tour member and were glad we found it. While staying at the Double Tree we were looking for an affordable but decent place for dinner. Found Dave's to fit the bill. Happened to arrive during Happy Hour and they took care of our group of 8 easily. Beer prices were good... More

I had both dinner and breakfast here. The patty melt and fries were good but not exceptional; however my breakfast omelette (bacon, mushroom and spinach) was incredible.

Let me start off this review by mentioning this is just based on service(or lack of). If I could give this place a negative number I would. We went for dinner on Saturday evening and got there around 9:30PM. We were asked to sit in the lounge since the restaurant part was closing soon. We chose a spot a noticed... More

Ate here twice, 1 week apart. The waitress remembered us ( impressive in this day and age ). Great menu, something for everyone. Very generous portions. Great beer and wine selection too. The waitress was super friendly, and helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit.

This is a nice little stereotypical diner nestled among the many airport motels of the area. Friendly staff, good unpretentious food, affordable price and portion. Nothing to go out of the way for, but when you're there nothing can be much better.

This was a typical place to get a big breakfast or lunch. The wait staff were friendly and efficient, the food was OK, Parking was available in their lot. I had bacon and eggs, my husband had an omelet, and we were satisfied if not overwhelmed.

We were going to Denny's across the street, but when we passed Denny's we saw hardly a soul in there so we decided to try Dave's Diner and we are glad we did. Ashley, our waitress, was attentive, super friendly and quick. The overall theme of the restaurant was not clear, but they had license plates from various states on... More
