Classic American.

Fantastic burger in a cool layout. Yes it's so painfully hip it almost hurts but when classic dishes are nailed this well who cares? The kind of restaurant I would like in my neighborhood.

This place is uber cool and the guys are very nice BUT, please, remember to ask the price of any dish. The have this very cool habit to write down on your paper tablecloth the menu. Without prices. That's why we ended up paying about 40$ for 2 salads. If you wonder what those salads were made of, well... just... More

Came here on a recommendation and left disappointed. I think the diner is trying to do things a bit differently but in my opinion they should try and put the quality of food and customer service first before 'cool' things like writing down a menu on the table without revealing the price of any dishes. We just had the pancakes... More

While I understand some other reviewers being put off by the decor and the "limited" menu, I thought this place was great! Yes, the waitress rattled off the rest of the menu but, she also wrote it down for us. I ordered a basil and almond scone with jam and clotted cream from England. Fabulous! it was the best scone...

We loved our experience here. The service was very good, they had good knowledge of the menu and were very attentive. The place was. Use but they managed to fit us in outside. The bloody Mary's were tasty and spicy. I had biscuit and gravy with greens and scrambled egg which was perfect. The burger was massive and there ewe... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a late brunch of Biscuits and Gravy after a meander through Williamsburg building an appetite. From the outside it appears nondescript but the interior is cosy and welcoming. Found the main of scrambled egg, kale, biscuit and sausage gravy wholesome, hearty fare that would have me coming back the next time I could. A shame I could not... More

If you don't already know of this place, it is not obvious that it is a diner. The sign is on the inside door, after the outside door is opened. It is cozy, comfortable, the food is great and the service is very good. They accommodated our party of 16 people and managed the orders very efficiently. The menu is... More

The dominating theme in the food at this restaurant is salt. The duck soup appetizer could have been delicious - the combination of lentils, cabbage and duck broth sounded great, but the overpowering salty taste ruined it. For a main dish I ordered a hamburger with a salad on the side instead of french fries. The hamburger was so salty... More

As soon as we entered this place, which had come recommended, we realized that it was way more upmarket than we expected from a diner. No problem, a nice brunch is always a good thing right? The menu we were handed was limited, and it turned out this was because more than half the menu wasn't on the menu -... More

long waiting time, overly salty food, overpriced meal!!! We ordered the sirloin and were very disappointed (counting that it was an $80 plate)! There are too many other good restaurants in the area to waste your time going here - it's just trendy and overpriced, nothing else.
