The wife & I stopped in for a drink after work with the thought of maybe staying for dinner. They've face-lifted the old diner with glass tile, stone and wood, but it still has that diner feel ---low ceilings, high booths, etc. The decor was ok but there was something just uncomfortable about the place. The parking lot had a lot of cars, but once inside we realized they belong to the workers - so many people standing around with no customers. Anyhow, ordered a drink...the waitress was nice but couldn't answer questions about what kind of beer they had or what the happy hour deal was. The happy hour beers were apparently bottle they tried to sell but couldn't so they had them 2 for 1. Anyhow, the waitress (nope, can't call her a server) tried to take our dinner order twice before our drinks had even been delivered. The captain stopped by to see if "everything was ok" too. I think they retooled the diner and kept the same crew. Anyhow, we decided to have our drink and go. Ordered the hummus as a snack, it was chunky and oily but had a nice garlic flavor. Looked at the menu and laughed at the prices. We won't be going back, too many places (The Pluckemin Inn, Char, etc.) in the area with better ambiance, food and service.
