I usually agree with other Tripadvisor reviews but I was disappointed with dinner here. My husband and I both thought everything was just way too salty. I don't think I would go out of my way to come back again.

We loved our diner. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs and I had the margarita pizza. Both dishes were delicious as well as the wine. The staff was friendly and service was great. We are demanding customers and will definitely go back!!
