“The soups are great, but otherwise average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Smyrna soups are great, but other than that they don't do well on much else. They serve my favorite chili, but otherwise they don't do the best on anything else.

The breakfast is OK (another person in my party got it), because it wasn't the hottest, but other than that it was pretty good, including the extra well done bacon (which was specifically requested).

The sweet potato fries are also ok, but pretty much everything I haven't already mentioned is bland or unappetizing, not that I've tried everything else on the menu.

“Comfortable Comfort Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We had chicken pot pie, tuna club, chilli and grilled cheese and tomato. Everything satisfied our need and taste for classic comfort foods. Both the vanilla and chocolate shakes topped off our Comfort Meal! Decor and service were just right!

“Comfort food at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

On July 31,2014, we stopped by the diner for some lunch. The special of the day was peas and dumplings. They were the best I've had since my grandmother passed away, she made the best. They were made with diced ham, slick style dumplings and a delicious broth almost the consistency of gravy. 5 stars to say the least

“Good Eating!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Good place for relaxing and eating. If you liver and onions, its the best there. We will continue to visit.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

friendly wait staff, but they cook with too much grease. Decent sandwiches but not too much ambience
