Great place to go for a good meal. The service is good and food is excellent. It has been in Goshen for a very long time. A place to visit to look back in time. Ice cream is GREAT.

This place is amazing!!! I HIGHLY recommend the Philly Chili. My nephew from NJ saw this in this culinary class and wanted to visit this place. So when he came to the Midwest to visit we went. We both agreed we would go back. The apple crisp pie was good as well! Wonderful service.

So the reason we went was because this was featured on Food Networks Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. I am not quite sure what brought him here, but his picture is all over the entry way. I would say that it is surely a Diner, but I would claim it is a Dive first. It was extremely HOT... More

South Side is famous for its seafood, pies, steak sandwiches, and more. It is a bit of nostalgia mixed with delicious food. The owner has sports memorabilia decorating his diner. The pies are home made and delicious.

Arrived at lunch time at a very busy time the service was a little bit slow. The food was delicious..The dessert was to die for. I would recommend a green river drink from days gone by.

We sought out this restaurant because our hostess had a menu, and we saw that they made ice cream fountain drinks - hard to find these days. But when we got there, it was so charming and the menu was so interesting (and the smell of hamburgers so enticing) that we stayed for lunch. I had a liverwurst and bacon... More

This is an old time eatery. It has great food, desserts and drinks. It is a nonalcoholic eatery. Think back to the 60's and soda fountains you will find some of those types of drinks here. When you get your food you will not go away hungry. The hoagies are an Eastern Pennsylvania staple.

Nothing special.Too long to wait and the food was not something I could not whip up myself. The diner itself is cute.

This diner is usually busy,and we also saw the episode of Diners and Drive ins,so we thought we'd try it out.They do have a few unusual items on their menu such as the feta cheese sandwich.Turns out feta is better sprinkled on a salad than a big hunk between bread! I also ordered their "award winning" chili,honestly,I prefer Wendy's. My... More

We felt like we had stepped into an earlier time. The food and service was wonderful and the prices reasonable. They make all their desserts and if they don't have your favorite it hasn't been created yet. You've missed something if you don't try this place.
