We visited the Diner for consecutive meals. Dinner, breakfast, and lunch. We found all the meals to be homemade style with large portions. The best item we had was the baklava which is homemade. Great experiences!

The value for the amount of food you get is great. I used to like their omelettes and potatoes, but my wife and I went there with my parents last year and they complained about the eggs tasting like Brillo pad cleaner. I tasted it too and they were correct, unfortunately. Haven't been back since, but I wouldn't rule out... More

My wife and I had the dis-pleasure of trying to eat at what we thought was a brand new restaurant called Lowry's in Knoxville MD. All it is the same ole place called Cindy Dee. I have given them a bad review already. All this did was made us fly to Mountain View which is always very good. We had... More

We stopped for lunch with a group of coworkers. We were immediately seated and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Got huge portions of delicious heartwarming food.

Need a fix of friendly, southern diner food? This is your place! From scrapple to grits to country gravy and bigger than life pies - they have it all! Impossible to leave hungry - but do suspend any narrow foodie judgements...this is a place to wallow in food memories, not a place to wax poetic and indulge fussy food preferences.

Best meal in town!!!!! So much better than what the hotel offered if you just want a simple breakfast or lunch.

I have lived in the area for sometime and have eaten here many times. They recently renovated portions of the place and it has not been the same since. The service has suffered as well as the quality of food. Its a shame.
