Terrific Diner

This restaurant personifies the tradition of the American Diner, and all of the very best qualities attached to that genre. There is nothing fancy about it, and it is small; a counter and about 7 tables. There are daily specials, and a varied menu, all good, "diner" food. We just happened to end... read more

After spending some time in Milwaukee we were on our way back home and found ourself in New Berlin for breakfast. We had pancakes, garlic and cheese hash browns and an egg sandwich on toasted rye. We both really enjoyed our choices. However, other reviews of this venue are spot-on: the restaurant is a local haunt and locals receive great... More

This is a family-run restaurant. When visiting Milwaukee our family have eaten here a number of times - usually for Friday fish-fries. It is small and you don't have long to wait for food to be served. Beer-battered fish seems to be a favourite here - and it is well cooked. On a recent visit I ordered lake perch and... More

You must have to be a local to get great service! I was excited to visit this local cafe with my family but when we finally had the chance it was pretty disappointing. The food and prices were ok, the service was less than stellar, unless the waitstaff knew you. We were pretty much ignored while all the "regular" customer... More

This is a wonderful, friendly place. Do not expect white linen but do expect good food and exceptional service. It's worth finding if you're in the neighborhood.

We were regulars there until today. We got there at 1:40 and the closed sign was already up. Loni told us to come in but evidently the cooks took issue with it, saying they clean the grille at 1:45, which it was not yet, so my wife came back out and we left. We have been coming there pretty much... More

My wife and I always seen quite a few cars here for early dinner and Saturday lunches. We stopped in and was a bit disappointed about the atmosphere, the service and the food. All could use a nice upgrade. They seem to have a nice business so plenty of people must like it. We unfortunately did not.

They make their menu from scratch the way it's supposed to be. It's all very good and the regular waitresses are great. And you can't beat the prices! Recommend!

It insults me that someone actually said, they find my comments are to believe. I have absolutely no reason to lie about what happened. If you ask these ladies about the incident, I would be sure they even remember it. There is not a doubt in my mind. Though I am sure it was what the shorter waitress wanted, the... More

We love this place! The food is great. Breakfast is delicious, malts are amazing, fish fry is delicious, and their sandwiches are yummy, too! The staff makes everything even better! They are super fun, nice, and quick!
