“Food was average this time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We met family in town and decided to take them to the diner, since we had a great time prior. Atmosphere and service was outstanding, but food was average at best this time. I had the chicken lovebird and the chicken itself was good, though the scallops were fishy and rubbery. The filling inside the chicken was barely edible. The other 5 diners also felt the food was average.

“WONDERFUL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The desk clerk at the Marriott recommended the Diner. It is only about 1/2 block from hotel. It is a New York style Diner. Great manager with a wonderful sense of humer. Lots of energy in the place. They have a large menu with good prices. Open 24/7. I would definately return. It is by the Days Inn Rivergate.
