FUN PLACE FOR BOOMERS,

I really enjoy this place for the atmosphere. Baby boomers feel at home here. Food was pretty good, both my husband and I enjoyed our meals both times we were there. Portions a little small. Having a friend coming from Manitoba for a visit in Sept. Cant wait to take her, she will love the 50s... read more

This Diner is a huge room with vinyl records on one wall, a jukebox at the far end and many tables and booths for patrons in between. Don't let the name or the rooms decor fool you - the food is fabulous! We ordered seafood soup and it was homemade and delicious! The salads were fresh and the soda was... More

Walking into this restaurant is like walking into the past. The atmosphere is wonderful and the servers are great. The food arrived quickly hot, and tasted great.

It was one of the best cheese burgers we've had in years... the fries were hand cut.. very good! We ordered onion rings too and they were delicious... they came with a little dish of a spicy mayo.... to dip them in.... It was yummy! It's like a restaurant from 'Happy Days' ... a trip back in time.... We loved... More

I'm usually cautious about diners, but True North was a great value. I had the grilled haddock which was done perfectly (not overcooked). My friend had Hamburger Steak which he said was the best he'd ever had (and that's his favourite diner meal). There were 3 entertainers singing and dancing to 50's tunes. The atmosphere was fun. The place was... More

I live relatively close and during a move I was a regular. Typical fare, good burgers, meatloaf, turkey dinners etc.My son says that the Reuben is really good. Deserts look good but aren't. Juke box, that is loud and has 50's music such as Elvis. Very popular with seniors.

I left hungry and at $13.99 for what I alone ordered...I should not have left that way!!! Waitress came to the table once, potatoes were not real and we're more of a paste then a mashed potato. 3 bites and the we're gone...I got more butter then I did potatoes.
