Really a 96 out of a 100! Family run restaurant that we’d been to back in July 2019 . Took Mom and her aide out for brunch. Service and food both top notch. So for our farewell lunch with Mom before we headed north ,...it was Plantation Diner again. And again top notch service and fantastic food. Moms Shrimp Salad Sandwich was fantastic! ( yup, I tried some ). The turkey club I shared with my wife was almost too much to finish and every bite was delicious. French Fries the way we like ‘em and cole slaw was good too. A ‘ new ‘ must when we visit Mom.More

Having visited this restaurant back in September, I was eager to get back and give it another go! Although they were busy due to the December holidays with everyone on vacation, we were seated immediately. When the server, Diane, arrived, she clearly did not know...how to handle the large crowds of people in the restaurant. She was unfriendly, pushy, sarcastic, and downright mean. Having only been there once before, I had questions about the food. She tried to hurry me along rather than answer the questions. She even went as far as to say that I am indecisive, something a server should never say to any guest anywhere at anytime. Insulting your customers is a sure fire way to ensure they never return. I was simply unfamiliar with the way this restaurant prepares its food and was asking questions. I told her that I was uncomfortable being pushed into making a decision, but she didn’t care. She just wanted to move on to the next table. When the food finally arrived, it was mediocre at best. The pasta salad was very dry and had clearly been sitting around for hours. The beef used in the burgers was not properly ground to restaurant standards. I was not expecting much since this is a diner, but it should at least have been at McDonald’s or Burger King quality or better. I sincerely hope the management reads these comments and will take appropriate actions to address the mmmm.More

I am so sorry for your experience at the diner. That is NOT how our staff should have handled it. You are correct when you said that you should have been giving more time and questions about the menu should have been explained to you...More

Plantation Diner is a quite large place, and seems busy all the time. We were told there would be a 30 minute wait for breakfast, but were seated in about 15 minutes. Food was good. We had a variety of food, and the only thing...I can say is the biscuits and gravy was so-so,More

It is just an average place that seems to draw a crowd of people who are regulars. It;s ok but nothing special. Food is average, service average, but nothing negative at this place. It is clean and a pleasant place if you are looking for...breakfast or lunch.More

My mother was celebrating her 90th birthday and when I asked where she'd like to go, she said the Plantation Diner. I spoke with Jerrie a week before and she arranged for 13 of us to sit together. Not an easy task at 10:30 in...the morning during breakfast. Jerrie was amazing as was our server Barbara and the kitchen staff. All of the food came out hot, delicious and almost at the same time. Not easy to do. The late arrivals were taken care of immediately and everyone had such a wonderful time. The genuine kindness of both these women shined through every moment we were there. I can't thank you enough for making my mother's 90th a day to remember.More

We arrived late morning from the airport and wanted breakfast. Thanks to the reviews here we went to Plantation Diner. The place is adorable, not a chain which we prefer and the menu quite extensive. There were breakfast specials and I had the avocado toast...with 2 eggs. Delicious! The omelets were quite large and very good according to my husband and son. They give you plenty of food and it is very reasonable. The service was great and everyone who works there was very friendly. It was so good, we went there every day for breakfast on our short trip to FL.More
