On the way to the beach and looking for breakfast. I stopped here. No chance to read any reviews, I was just looking for a non-chain restaurant and saw this 50s diner and pulled into the parking lot. Waitress was friendly and got my food out to me quickly. I liked the buttermilk pancakes. The poached eggs were hard- didn't... More

Our waitress was awsome and that was the only thing good here. First they way over priced for a dinner. The food was not very good at all. Pancakes tasted flat. Frys had no salt. The dinner was clean. We will not return again.

We almost always stop in for a late breakfast. Staff is wonderful and the food is great and reasonably priced. The bathrooms, though, need serious work. Stall doors need to be repaired, fixtures and facilities need replacement or thorough cleaning, and the ceiling leaks. Soon, if repairs are not made, we will be dining elsewhere.

We had breakfast here two days during the trip and loved it both times. This diner has been there for more than 50 years and it has a great diner feel to it. The inside is modern and the tables and booths are comfortable. The staff is fun and friendly. Our breakfast came with hashbrowns or home fries but we... More

Good omelets, Moop 1 had ham and cheese, ham was clearly sugar cured and really good. Moop 2 had mushroom and Swiss, lots of Swiss cheese, also really good. Grits were OK, potatoes were a little better than OK. Good breakfast stop, not outstanding but solid, Props for the chrome diner, always a hit for us.

Slow leisurely breakfast after my wife ran the MonsterMash half marathon in October. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a race and the food was diner food, just what we wanted. Huge quantities and reasonable prices. It's worth a stop for a look at the decor...lots of antique toys.

The cooks in this place need to be fired. The food here is under cooked and soaked in oil, butter and salt. What kind of diner messes up french fries? How can you stay in business when you even cook basic junk food. The salmo we had was easily the worst I have ever had in my life.

We are local and have driven past here a million times and to be honest we never really remember to stop here. Decided to try it for breakfast after a local go to breakfast spot was closed. Typical diner fare and not really spectacular. It will fill you up but don't know if I need to return.

We enjoy breakfast there. The portions are very good and the prices are appropriate. The servers are generally pleasant. I have not had dinner there so I can only comment on breakfast. The eggs are well prepared and the portion of bacon is amazing. The atmosphere is typical diner but appears clean.
