The service is awful. I took my preteen son here for breakfast. We gave our order and never saw our server again. Everyone who came in after us got their breakfast, but we got nothing, I got uo to talk to another waitress, but she shrugged and walked away. We saw two older men come in, and get their food...

Been eating at Owl Diner for a few years. The food is always great and staff always friendly. Where else can you have baked beans w/ your eggs.

Set in an old stainless and formica diner car. Juke boxes on the tables. Thick local accents. Baked beans for breakfast. Easy access, lots of parking.

This restaurant has been around forever and it is owned by a family who owe other "diners" in the area. The food has always been good when I have been there and the portions are generous. Remember to bring cash because they do not take credit cards.

Com'mon in and be encircled in a warm, fuzzy teddy bear hug; being served like kings and queens with enormous care and love that could instantly melted a formidable iceberg! Pipping hot, heart warming coffee and other beverages in a deep mug; cholestrol, gut filling morsels arrived fresh and ridiculously smack licking yummy in a man-size plate; well...what more could...

Showed up a little past 6am so it was't really busy yet. Sat at the counter and it was like going back 50 years. Oldies on the radio set the mood too. Bacon & eggs were done well and coffee cup was never empty, They had a parking lot on the side of the building. Great Diner!

I came here with my dad after getting running some morning errands. He and my mom have always told me it's a really good place even though they hadn't been in years, and since this was the one that started the other diners in the area, I had been dying to check it out for awhile. It definitely did not... More
