A true diner

We had a long day from Vancouver Canada, shopping, and getting ready for a flight via SeaTac. The hotel staff (Sleep Inn) recommended this restaurant and it was perfect. A true American diner with excellent comfort food.

If you like basic diner food, this is the place for you! We recently had breakfast and wanted to avoid one iof the nearby chain restaurants. It was good but not great and I expected a little more based in the reviews.

I ate here twice on a recent business trip, the second time when we couldn't get into the crowded Sharps Roast House. Both experiences were good ones. The first time was late on a Monday and I tried the pot roast and enjoyed it. It came with vegetables and mashed potatoes. It was so tender in the gravy it could... More

Our waiter was fast, efficient and friendly. It was a Hawaiian themed night and staff was dressed in aloha shirts. Motif was signs of places you could gisit on a road trip. Food was hot, tasty and filling. Got 2 chocolate cookies to go and ate it on plane ride home next day.

Stopped in for dinner and ordered the Ruben and a cup of chili. Chilli was pretty good but nothing exceptional. Ruben was very greasy. Bread was obviously saturated in butter before grilling. Corn beef was fatty. Definitely not the quality of a northeast deli or even a southeast deli. Service was quick and no complaints there. Maybe poor choice on... More

This was a quick stop for a supper and it was good. The decor of an old school diner is lack luster but the staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was good but not great.

Great classic diner fare and fun personality. It stands out from all the bland restaurants out there. The Dagwood sandwich was yummy.

Did not want to drive so they were close to my hotel not bad reviews not great either. Sat at the counter I don't like to take tables when it's just me. Service was slow however they had a help wanted sign so probably under staffed. The waiter was really nice once he came around and he was actually helping... More
