After a wander around the lanes, we spotted the diner and were seated in a booth. Lovely comfortable seating, good menu choice and reasonable prices. Portion sizes were huge and after a large starter I struggled to eat my main meal - no chance of...More

Recommend the burgers , be prepared to be served a very large portion of food and if having a milkshake, it may be worth sharing one between two , if you can't finish the milkshake you can ask for a takeaway cup to finish later...More

Stopped off for an evening meal and pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, efficient staff and delicious authentic American diner food! Great for a themed party or even if you just fancy American style food!

Good breakfast pancakes. Have had dinner here a couple of times too and they know what they are doing. Ordered chilli nachos and the chilli was strangely too sweet but the rest was great. Good value for money and attentive staff.

Right on the seafront. Fab food, milkshakes to die for. Not top end prices, fair portions. And the desserts are ...tasty too.. if you have room for dessert. Catch Tom & Jerry on the T.V whilst you wait.

This restaurant is particularly attractive for people who love the American culture and food. The restaurant is decorated in the hearty American pub style. The fries and salad are of average quality, yet I guess it's because it's not the main popular dish people are...More
