We went one day and I was actually served Gluten Free Bread for my toast. The meal was okay. The next day we went back and I requested Gluten Free bread. When my food was brought out, it was obvious that I didn't have gluten free bread. The waiter told me it was. When we got the ticket to pay... More

After a long day of traveling we ended up at Dale's since we just wanted to settle on something and not much else was both open and close by. It feels odd to sit and eat in this decor, the service was okay, and the food was pretty greasy. It seriously feels like eating in a gift shop that was... More

We went to Dale's on the recommendation from the manager of the hotel where we stayed. The food was basic but good and the coffee was great. I felt like the restaurant was not clean, my husband thinks that it is just really old. The service was good but I was a little squeamish when I was eating there. I... More

Prompt and friendly. A classic example of a small town diner. Everything comes with butter on it :) Recommended for breakfast. Coffee isn't the best but the food is good. Nice selection of breakfast baked goods like donuts and apple fritters, etc. Ended up parking across the street in the Evan's Plunge parking lot.

We stopped for lunch and had Buffalo items with the Salad Bar. The Salad bar was very nice and the meat was good. I'd pick the meatloaf over the ribs as a better value. The waitress was pleasant and we were pleased with this choice for lunch.

We had a good lunch stop here. Good basic food. Lots of option. Salad bar was nice for fresh vegetables. Had the pot roast. Nice a tender. Daughter enjoyed the burrito. Senior sized meals for all of you choose.

I asked for a gluten free menu because of the sign, the waitress said the only gluten-free items she has is gluten free white bread, gluten free 'multi-grain, and gluten free buns. Great start to the breakfast. So I ordered gluten free multi grain French toast with eggs over easy and bacon. Got the French toast, excited because the last... More

Let me start by saying that the breakfast was 100x better than what our hotel was offering. However, if your veggie omelet contains canned mushrooms, I can't call it any better than average. It was hard to tell what, if anything, was made on the premises. The biscuits and gravy were good, but was the gravy from a can? Not... More

We ate here a couple years ago, probably around summer of 2012. My husband loves diners and cafes and I don't. So he was thrilled. The waitress was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The salad I had was a typical diner-type salad, but good. A family next to us ordered the plate-size pancakes and they looked delicious. They were all... More
