This restaurant has a very extensive menu, comprising the standard American Diner food as well as a few interesting Greek dishes. Service is friendly and speedy. Portions are more than adequate. Most of our dishes turned out tasty and very satisfying. Beer is from the bottle, not the tap -- the Yuengling IPA was nice and cold! Prices are very... More

I was able to sample several of the dishes at Chris's Restaurant, and it was all pretty good. It was served hot. No real issues to speak of, but also nothing special to write home about. Service was fair, as were the prices. Chris's is a good place to stop for a bite if you happen to be in the... More

My family of 3 went for breakfast. We were rushed & the waiter didn't even make eye contact. Asked for a description of a food item & was told to read the menu!!! I understand they are busy but they treat the diner like an assembly line. No personalities or warmth. My eggs were slimey & bacon was very greasy.... More

Ok I guess but they need to learn how to make a loaded baked potato and not be worried so much that I ordered another beer before I ordered my food... Don't know the manager's name but he was way too high strung... Good food yes relaxing atmosphere no... But most of the wait staff and the rest of the... More

Stopped here Saturday morning for breakfast. Had a bacon and cheese omelet with homefries and toast. The omelet was very good, and the homefries had a nice crispy crunch on the outside, I happen to prefer them that way. They have a huge variety of breakfast foods, as well as a great dinner menu. Waitresses are great and friendly.

We came upon this dinner by chance. It was late at night and our GPS was acting possessed! We were both getting tired and hungry and what to our wondering eyes should appear...Chris's Family Restaurant! Perfect selection. Variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees served 24/7. Portions are plentiful. Service is super fast. It's quality dinner food. You won't be... More

Great for all meals. Great choice of options, especially greek specialities. Like spanikopita, moussaka, pastititou . Unique omelettes for a fair price. Great choice no matter when you stop in. Staff is pleasant and very efficient , plus the manager/ owner is always helping out. Inside is very clean and updated .

Friendly staff with great food. Had to wait a little while for food, but the place was hopping and the staff were working hard to accommodate everyone. Will definitely come back here.

Admittedly we were tired and really hungry, but this restaurant really hit the spot. It's got a huge menu. My friend got a wrap which I gather was not that remarkable. I got one of the specials and it was outstanding. The portions were large and their desserts were fantastic. Excellent value too.
