Really great atmosphere with friendly staff and lovely food. Some of the portions were huge! The diner is decorated with movie objects/photos and American diner-style furniture to give an authentic feel. The menu choice is massive - all based on American dining - burgers, tex-mex etc. There are some veggie options and fish - you'd be hard-pressed not to find... More

Was wandering around Eastbourne and this place caught my eye lots of film characters and people from American History, very quirky. When i went in i was told the food would be 40 minutes or so, but don't took that long but would be expected in a restaurant anyway. There was just one bloke on his own and the place... More

We went to this diner yesterday and wow what a meal! The portions were typical American sized and so very tasty. Between us we ordered chicken ribs and burgers. Such good value for money and excellent customer service. We will definitely be returning!

We called in Sunday night after a weekend in Easbourne, for a Masonic Weekend. Loved the food, & atmosphere. We only had a main meal & root beer, but it was lovely. I had a Dark Knight, truly hot, but yummy. Hubbie had a huge meal, four different meats in a bun. Very nice, very filling. Very friendly staff, &... More

Booked a table for my mother in laws birthday, we weren't all sat together though! We had young baby, the manager wanted us to put the pushchair on side of the table where they would walk through to bring food out. I wasn't happy with this so we slightly moved the table and put it behind us on opposite side... More

Had a craving for steak so just did a google search and came across this place. The waiter was friendly from the start, although perhaps more staff were needed as he was on his own with a large table and people walking in regularly. I was a little disappointed with the mac & cheese, no melted cheese on the top... More

Been meaning to try here for a long time, we weren't disappointed, you won't find better burgers anywhere in Eastbourne, meaty, tasty and cooked just right with various toppings such as pulled pork, chicken breast, pork steak, mushrooms etc.. served with crispy fries. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough

I had the Philly cheese steak sandwich..unfortuntabley one of the only items not named after a super hero or movie star...... More
