Fun place

A couple of my friends and I went here for a little dinner (aka an app) and drinks. I had two drinks and cheesesteak egg rolls it was about 50 bucks with tip. It's pretty expensive, but the atmosphere was fun. The bartender that night had a little bit of an attitude.

I visited this diner late on a Sunday morning with my sons. We all ordered different dishes, and all of them were excellent. Service was quick and friendly.

We had toured the city with some friends and decided to stop in for a bite to eat. Very cool atmosphere as it resembles the old stainless diners of the east coast. Food was very good - had some Thai bbq skewers with a peanut sauce and some jasmine rice. Very tasty. We were riding the subway back home and... More

Better of the Starr chain with good pricing. Low key and good for late night bite. Comfortable diner feel without the 50's vibe.

I was brought here by my friends last night for some food and drinks. I ordered a strawberry twizzler virgin cocktail - which was off the menu and it was delicious. My friends ordered champagne with sugar around the rim (can't remember the name). We then ordered a few plates of food and it was of a very high quality.... More

So I will admit, my wife and I came in here late after a concert at Citizens Bank Park. It was 11:30 and we were tired and hadn't eaten anything since 2pm. So we sat down and all I wanted to drink was a water. I had enough beer at the show and I was thirsty. We got a weird... More

Staff a little inattentive but the food was good and the beer was cold. The Korean BBQ tacos were properly spicy (I like spicy food), even though the menu says not spicy. Decent beer selection and it was served at a proper temp. I was solo and they did me a favor and put me in the back of the... More

I've been here before, but brought a colleague while on business. After a rocky start with an inattentive waitress, we moved to a new section and things got better. There for brunch on a Sunday. Hostess was wonderful, second waitress was very good. Food Highs: Their pancake may be the best I've ever eaten in a restaurant. Denser and thicker... More

This was a neat place to eat. We ordered from the menu and the food was served to share between everyone at our table. The cheesesteak eggrolls were delicious and served with a spicy ketchup. The shrimp pad thai featured jumbo shrimp prepared and chopped - also delicious. I would definitely return here to eat again.
