The Glider Diner is famous in this area. We have had Presidents of the USA stop there. The food is good and plenty of it for the price. They are famous for their roast beef dinners and gravy/fries.

Diner food is great. My wife and I were in town for an early appointment and with the advice of a co-worker we tried the Glider Restaurant. Typical diner food good and fast. We had French toast with bacon, and eggs over easy with hash. All were very good and the coffee was also very good. Service was fast and... More

We ate dinner here one night. The main courses-- meatloaf and stuffed cabbage-- were delicious and like home cooking! The dessert-- cherry pie-- was OK; the vanilla ice cream that that we asked to be served with a pie was very good. Service was great-- extremely speedy!

Had a nice Ruben a couple weeks ago for lunch. Came back for breakfast, hoping to get some creamed chipped beef. Nope, not on the menu. I went with the Texas melt (ham, egg, cheese on grilled Texas bread). The ham was lunch meat. So that was the second disappointment. The home fries were good, but not great. The coffee... More

I have gone to this restaurant before for dinner, but never breakfast. I liked the breakfast so much better. They give you large portions and keep filling your coffee. Omelet made just the way I like and the toast was actually toasted. I hate to get toast that is not toasted long enough. I did not give it a better... More

Our party of nine golfers had breakfast at the Glider Diner last Sunday morning. We received a warm welcome from the owner-operator and enjoyed a range of traditional diner breakfasts that were nicely cooked and presented with only a short time to wait. Before leaving we were treated to a couple of jokes from another of the servers. We will... More

It took me over 40 years of traveling to realize the Glider deserves a place in diner folklore. It's just a good place to go for authentic diner food & atmosphere and it hasn't changed much in the 40 years we have been going there. The only thing missing is the old Jukebox and the cool remotes that used to... More

I am a fan of their reubens and omelettes. We get brunch here occasionally at work. The food is greasy and the waitresses are cranky. But it's tradition

I'll admit I was skeptical of the high rating on yelp when setting the place and trying the coffee (I really love coffee, but it's not great here), but this place didn't disappoint. They take all credit cards, have very friendly staff, and the breakfast was generous and delicious. For my buddy and my tab, it was $22 before tip.... More

This visit was for dinner. It has an old fashion diner appeal to it out front and there's regular tables in the back! Feels like 50's or 60's. Home cooked meals that are simple yet delicious!
