this is our "go to" local restaurant for casual breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is always tasty and plentiful, the staff friendly and efficient, and the price reasonable. It has transitioned nicely from a "Poodle Skirt" themed restaurant to very nice casual dining.

This is a very good and very consistent restaurant when it comes to service, quality and price. When you eat at 50's, you know what you are getting when you order it and it's always top notch home style food. The servers are friendly and attentive without being overbearing. A great choice for a family meal any time of day.... More

Have had many items on the menu always delicious and consistent. Go before 5 pm to avoid line ups. You can also order take out. Breakfast is awesome too and you can order it all day.

Coming from Montreal, we ordered their large smoked meat sandwich with coleslaw and fries. WOW The smoked meat sandwich was enormous. My husband and I could not eat all of it and I didn't even touch my fries. Very good and the price was good too. The service was fast even though the restaurant was almost full.

A Great place to go for Breakfast or Lunch, Fare prices and great service. On this visit, we all had the breakfast special witch was excellent. On previous visits we have had the Montreal smoked meat sandwich, which was also very good.

This is a very popular spot, particularly for weekend breakfast and there's usually a lineup. Having said that, there's nothing that distinguishes it from any other diner-type restaurant. The portions are a good size and priced okay. The restaurant is big but not especially clean and the service is spotty. Plenty of parking and easy to get in and out... More

Try the eggs Benedict Neptune with lobster and asparagus. A great twist on the original. The coffee keeps a comin and the witnesses are super friendly.
