“Closes thing to a diner back east!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

Fish & Chips rule!!! Breakfast is well done. Burgers/Fries good choice. Try the shakes...you won't be disappointed.

“Very Mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

The good news first - the milk shakes are made with real ice cream and served in real glass with the stainless steel tumbler brought to the table as well. I would give the milkshakes by themselves a 5 star rating.

The rest - the service is slow. Slow to be seated, slow to get drink orders, slow to get food orders, slow to bring food, slow to refill drinks, slow to bring the check.

The food quality is poor. The chili dog I got there was a real gut bomb that didn't let up until I finally got rid of it the next morning.
The onion rings are terrible. My wife didn't care for her burger either.

Absolutely go for the shakes if you have tons of time to kill; otherwise, stay away.

I don't know how this place is still in business. The food is not as good as a Denny's, though the prices are comparable, the service is slow.
