We had lunch here on August 26th and had a wonderful bowl of seafood chowder. They also have other great seafood items. The chowder was full of shrimp, fish and pieces of scallops. Try it you will love it.

This is our "go to" place. Daily specials, several per day. The Wednesday all you can eat haddock is great. Service is always good and prices are fair. Breakfast or dinner a good choice.

Great place to stop after a bike ride on the Nashua River Rail Trail. Big sandwiches and a nice beer selection. Tuna Club special with onion rings was very good. Casual, friendly and the place for locals.

Stopped in there on Memorial Day when other places were closed. Thankfully they were open till 1 PM or so. I ordered scrambled eggs and ham, which were delicious and a good portion. It came with home fries and toast. Coffee was good too. Service was attentive. If you're passing through, go there.

Belgian waffle was pretty pathetic looking (and tasting). Fruit on top looked like it came out of a can (and sure tasted like it). Home fries were very greasy and the oil used was not very good. Pretty dingy place.

Good, honest food, fair prices and terrific service; what more do you need?...OK, it's a luncheonette type atmosphere but, that's the only "negative" if you can even call it that! I had a medium rare bacon cheeseburger with fries. The burger was perfectly cooked and the fries were fresh. My wife has a grilled cheese with bacon and onion rings;... More

My family has been going to Tiny's since I was a kid. I remember when Tiny was still working there. This is a great place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Lots of seating. They have almost daily all you can eat dinner specials. I think Thursday and Sunday are the only two nights they don't have an all... More

This place is a classic, a little odd, but a classic. I should say that I've only eaten breakfast and lunches here so I cannot vouch for the dinner menu. The food is pretty classic diner fair except for the occasional surprise like fried oysters on the menu. It's definitely worth checking Tiny's out for the atmosphere as much as... More
