We ate lunch here and came back for breakfast the next day. Both times were very good. Everything you would expect a diner to have is on the menu, inexpensive, and the place is open all day.

The diner is in very much need of a make over, BUT the breakfast food is excellent and is very reasonable priced. (We did not go there for lunch or dinner). We went to breakfast there 2 days in a row, my husband had bacon, eggs and toast with home fries while my teenagers and I had omelets. The bill... More

Stopped in for a late (9:45) dinner. Decor was cool, staff were excellent, food was not good. We both had roast beef with filling and the meat was tough, the filling was gross and after a few bites, i noticed an off taste. Moved on to the sides since entree was not good - cottage cheese was old, more like... More

We used to go here on occasion for breakfast. We ate here this morning for the first time in almost a year. We won't again unless other places are closed. The eggs were made without milk(very dry). The ham tasted like heated boiled ham. The sausage was spicy. The bagel was ok, but what can you do to a bagel?... More

The Lincoln Diner, or "Stinkin' Lincoln" as the locals call it is a favorite hangout. It's everything you expect a diner to be, cheap, quick service, a little grimey and having that distinctive smell of a place that serves breakfast 24/7. If you really want to experience the diner as a local, close down one of the many bars around... More

In Gettysburg there is no shortage of kitschy Lincoln-themed attractions. Almost every block there is some Lincoln store, Lincoln restaurant, Lincoln souvenir shop, etc. At the outset, there is nothing that unique about the Lincoln Diner. It's kind of on the outskirts of town by the train tracks. Just looks like a typical diner. But it's not! Half of the... More

I have been here for breakfast twice. The food is great, and both times, the waitress was pleasant. It's a small town feel diner. Parking can be a small issue. Very small parking area. You seat yourself, which can be annoying when very crowded. But, these things are not annoying enough to keep me away. It's also open 24 hours!... More

It's a diner. As long as you keep that in mind, you won't be disappointed. Good, basic food with adequate service. I order it, I eat it, I never complain.
