Lovin' the grill...😃

The Wheelhouse offers reliable fare at affordable prices. I enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the grill...especially at breakfast. There is typically a mound of home fries off to the side of the grill. The food is always hot and fresh. Visit The Wheelhouse for an authentic diner experience... read more

Long Lines, cash only but well worth it if you don't mind the wait. Go for the corn beef hash with rye toast

Love this place for breakfast. Cozy little spot with the standard diner menu. Other choices include traditional Irish breakfast and their take on Italian breakfast (Italian sausage).

A true classic diner. We've been here several times and enjoyed great breakfasts each time. There are dozens of "Greek Diners" in Chicago, so we know our diners. The service is friendly and helpful. It was late morning and not as busy as earlier in the morning so we had time to talk to the cook/chef and with real pride,... More

Hot coffee, free-flowing; quick, friendly service and awesome food! Fresh, good quality breakfast - diner food but very tasty and cooked exactly to order. My husband and I both ordered large breakfast - corned beef, eggs,pancakes and everything comes with a side of toast and home-fries (yum!). Really great value for money.

Have been going to the "Wheelhouse" for years. Times have changed as before it was good food fast. Lately it has been a frustrating long wait for ok food. Time for the staff to pick it up and have a better welcoming attitude. You go to a small town diner you would expect a happy, speedy, helpful staff...40 min. wait... More

The food is truly comforting and delicious. Good prices, small, cozy, and will not disappoint if you're into the real diner experience.

I visit this local diner every weekend usually late night due to choices available that time. You can't beat their breakfast, especially the omelets. Highly recommend over any other establishment in Quincy, Ma for late dining. Overall diners are becoming a rare treat in New England, so enjoy the place while you can. Parking is limited, can get busy but... More

We start every trip with breakfast at the Wheelhouse. Great breakfasts, and the lunch menu is very impressive too. You might have to wait for a table at peak time but its worth it -- it is a small place -- counter and booths -- a lot of regulars dine there and there is a neighborhood feel for the place... More

Had a great breakfast there after the snow storm. Friendly staff, quick service. It is very reasonably priced. Place is small. Recommend any of the egg dishes. Coffee is fresh and hot.
