Your typical American diner

We often go to the Lincoln Diner whenever we're in town for our breakfasts. The food is good with large portions. A great spot for a quick, at home style lunch.

We found this little dinner while trying to figure out where to go for brunch with a bunch of friends. The food was delicious, the service wasn't too slow (or too fast) and they were great at accommodating our large party, including several young children. Would absolutely go again if we were in the area.

Big portions and good prices. Always open it seems even after midnight! I recommend it to any tourists asking about a quick hearty breakfast.

Old school American diner. Have had breakfast here twice now and it does not disappoint. I bet 90% of the patrons are locals and regulars. Any red blooded American will will leave content and full.

Good real food, and reasonable prices. Old time atmosphere. This is a real old fashioned diner, chrome, stools and all. Save room for some dessert!

Every trip to Gettysburg must include breakfast at the Lincoln Diner...mushroom swiss omelette, home fries, rye toast and side of scrapple, small milk! My wife thinks I'm silly but there's something I really enjoy about breakfast at The Lincoln Diner. The service is prompt and friendly...lots of windows so it's bright when the sun comes up. Tony behind the counter... More

Not a bad place for a quick bite. I got the french toast with bacon. The food came out quickly, just what you would expect from a diner.

Stopped here for breakfast during battlefield tour. No disappointment. Service was prompt and courteous! Food quality was better than I expected. Prices were more than reasonable and portions were generous. Only drawback is its not very accessible and bathrooms are downstairs. Otherwise an overall great experience!
