Food was good, got all of our orders correct and did a great job of feeding a group of 17 and getting us out to the river quickly.

Best place in town!! Friendly service, home cooked food. We love to visit this place when we're in town, blueberry pancakes and their Friday night all you can eat fish is the best!!

My husband and I have been to Cheryl's diner once before and the food was great, so this time, we brought friends. Cheryl's diner did not disappoint. I think everyone got a hamburger, and we all enjoyed it. If your in Kernville, this is the place to stop for a bite.

This is very conveniently located next to where we were staying. The food is really good and they'll cook your eggs to order. It's a busy spot and the service can be a little slow at times, but if you go with that in mind, you'll enjoy your meal that much more. Owned by a family and staff are all... More

Good if you in a hurry. Not the greatest food. Place was a little noisy. Michelle the waitress was great .Very efficient. I would say a little overpriced for what you get

We went in with a group of 9 after a mountain bike ride and everybody thought the food was okay but nothing special and the prices were definitely on the high side. One guy who had the "all you can eat spaghetti" liked his food the most. Our server was very polite but service was s-l-o-w!!! To be honest, I... More
