Today was our second visit to Keedy's and it was just as good as our first visit in May. We have only been for breakfast but if you like an original diner this one was great. Started in 1957 and it is much the same now as it was back then

Ambiance hasn't changed in 20 years, not much. One of the deserts oldest restaurants goes back to the 1960's. Quality of the food is at best average, prices are to high for what you get, however their hard ice cream milk shakes are as good as you can get any place. Once every 3, or 4 months is about it...

Very, very busy during the season. Pancakes and Oatmeal are good. Service is so-so. Parking is generally easy, but sometimes we have had to wait for a table. Not a place to go to if you are on the run unless you go after season.

I love places like this. Keedy's hasn't been remodel in decades and no one seems to care. The seats at the counter are like the seats in a 1940's movie about a soda fountain. On each table is one of those throwback napkin dispensers: Black and chrome. I had breakfast there about a year ago and there was plenty of... More

I dream of pancakes - really really good pancakes - so it's always sad when you have them somewhere (and you only allow yourself to eat them once every three or four months) and they disappoint ... ouch. Well, no worries at Keedy's - blueberry pancakes that are light as can be, with a perfect texture and a balanced array... More

Yep this is like going back in time to 1957, they could have filmed "Happy Days" in there. Authentic soda fountain seating, tables and chairs from the era, real milk shake machines, it's the real deal. Now for the best part, the food is really really good, so with all that this makes the place "really cool". Good menu reasonable... More

Had breakfast there which was good value, served very quickly and the food came out very promptly. My husband doesn't always always want breakfast food so was pleased to be able to order a burger which he liked a lot! My pancakes were much thinner then the usual ones elsewhere..not quite crepe like but very tasty . Would recommend if... More

This was my first visit to Keedy's. Not sure why I never knew about this delightful little hole in the wall with regulars from the 1950's. Although they have changed hands over the years, Keedy's still has that charming diner atmosphere with servers who are very attentive. We stopped in on our way out of town just before closing. The...

Coffee was good and the restaurant has been around for many years. Old diner decor but well kept up. You can also park in... More
