Cool place, food is pretty good.

Our server wasn't the friendliest, but the food was pretty good. The atmosphere is cool, with lots of vintage toys and pictures. The bathroom kind of grossed me out, though. Instead of a hand dryer or paper towels, it had one of the old fashioned towel things. But it was an actual towel, so I don't... read more

While nursing my child with a nursing cover on, our server thanked me for using a cover, and went on to tell me that women who don't cover have no self-respect. This did not sit well with me. My entire dining experience was ruined (not that I expected much from this establishment in the first place). Unacceptable, insensitive, and immature... More

We thought we would go here for breakfast and just have a cheap breakfast. We got seated right away. Wait staff was very friendly and quick. Food was awesome! Place was clean. Price was right!

They have 'World Famous' Cinnamon Rolls but unless you get the extra icing, they are very dry and the apple ones are not good at all. The diner has a poor waiting area when the crowds are large but once seated the food is quite good and worth the wait. They offer old fashioned sodas from bottles and even a... More

I think her name was Kathy. Very friendly and very helpful. Allowed the kids to special order (like bacon on one plate, sausage on another, eggs on the left and toast on the right....a little exaggeration but you get it) and they nailed it!! Wait was a little long but it was sort of busy. Food was priced appropriately and... More

My husband and I brought our 3 1/2 year old great-granddaughter to the Dells for fall break last week. It was our first trip to your beautiful area and we had a great time at our resort hotel, the duck boat ride, animal parks, indoor amusements, lost canyon trip and really great restaurants. But one of our best memories will... More
