Come here for the classic diner experience. The decor is great. There are lots of menu options, including all day breakfast and they are open 24 hours. I would give it 5 stars but the service wasn't very attentive and we felt rushed. I recommend breakfast there for french toast and pancakes.

We went in Lori's after a long day of flying and no real food. I had the Lori's Special hamburger, which was great. It was topped with goat cheese and onions carmelized in balsamic. My husband finally got honest to goodness corned beef hash after many years of searching. Big chunks of corned beef, potatoes, and peppers. Served with sour... More

Lori's Diner is a nice diner whose decor is 50's themed and the menu is simple but, delicious. The service is great and the food is awesome. One piece of advice is that there is a coupon in the free tourist maps you can pick up on the Pier and you can save 20% off your bill. Each plate is... More

If you love milkshakes with your burger and fries this is the place to go. Food was amazing as well as the 50's diner decor. Great start to our holiday and had to visit for breakfast to as this was recommended by a friend. Wow you don't leave hungry!

Typical diner menu. The food was good and the service was really top notch for the volume this restaurant does. It is used to feeding large groups and they handle it well. The booths are set up so the can extend to groups of 6 to 8 or more. The will work hard to get you all seated as quickly... More

A bit of a cliche perhaps, but the food (waffles, eggs, bacon, etc.) were well prepared and the service was friendly and fast. Prices are about average for the area. Location is right on the cable car line.

This diner is a block from the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. It is a diner in the old-style tradition. Even has an Edsel inside! The food was excellent. Service was very good. We would definitely go back.

We chose this restaurant due to its proximity to our hotel. The décor was very fun, the service was great, and our breakfast was excellent! I ordered an omelet with cheese and avocado, and was happy to find that they didn't scimp on the avocado. The server was unaware of whether or not the hashbrowns were gluten free, so she... More
