Well it is a diner!

It is a fun place to eat, and certainly better than fast food. A bit dated and they should repaint the 50's Chevy at the front door. Service by Ashley was quick and efficient. The fettuccine was a bit bland and might use a better cream sauce. Not too bad for dinner on the road.

What a nice diner. They played oldies which I enjoy. I had the best grilled cheese. The waitress was very friendly and came back several times to see if we needed anything else. Go if you get a chance. You will not be disappointed.

Everything was very fresh & good. Just your average hometown diner with great service, friendly people & a local welcoming atmosphere. I enjoyed a Reuben & side salad. I had never had a Reuben with coleslaw before- perhaps that's a northern thing, but I prefer the sauerkraut!

Walked over from our hotel last night for dinner. Definitely a 50's theme. The area of the diner we were seated in might have been an enclosed patio area. It was definitely hotter and stuffier with no A/C compared to the rest of the place. Waitress Becca was polite, friendly and helpful. The menu is not real expensive. I had... More

Decorated with license plates from all over the country and vinyl records this cute diner served decent food. Nothing fancy but good basic food. Like that it serves beer and wine also. It was just a walk away from the airport hotel we were staying at.

The food was pretty good. The service was less than stellar. The decor is supposed to be old fashion, diner atmosphere. It bordered the line between tacky and diner.

Had a fun bartender take care of us as we decided to dine in the bar area. We ordered the cod and chips and had French onion soup for an appetizer. Food was good! Enjoyed the decor of old license plates. Lots of screens with sports to entertain!

We stopped in for a late night "breakfast" after flying in to Seattle. The food we ordered was very good. Be sure and try the french toast made with croissants. They have lottery card machines that some people kept pumping quarters into that was kind of annoying. Other than that, it was your typical diner scene and decor.

Reasonable, fun atmosphere and friendly staff combine to give this fine diner it's charm. Route 66 theme and a lot of Elvis stuff around. Why not? Pretty good home cooking offerings. I like the meatloaf and green beans. Not sure the mashed potatoes don't come our of a box and the gravy may not be homemade but as far as... More
