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.

I love diners and this one had been featured on "Diners and Dives" on tv so we went. It was a bit too warm for me inside...a warm July day outside and the AC not up to the weather. I was expecting something special and I got average. I ordered their special which was a seafood fettuccini dish and it... More

Food is good, service is good, and the atmosphere is good! Never had anything I didn't like. It's small inside so you might have a wait but it's worth it! We will be going back!

This has been a much wider variety of food than you would think of for a diner. Wonderful seafood and dinner entrée options. Amazing sandwiches including burgers, cheese steaks. Best salads in the area. And to top it all off, this also has the best pies in the county and probably in northern Indiana.

I've grown up either in or close to Goshen, but never went. Finally after hearing everyone rave about it my mom and I decided to go. Maybe we had high expectations or maybe it was a new cook but the food was horrid! My mom and I had some type of sandwich that was dry. We ordered $5 shakes and... More

TripleD stop #48 for me....was nearby picking up some automotive parts and had to stop in! We were all in the mood for a Philly Cheese Steak it seemed so we also added in the CrabCakes, Onion Rings, and Spiral Fries to share. Everything was delicious...the Philly sandwiches were great, the meat was tender and the bread was authentic....the CrabCakes... More

It's a step back in time to a little soda shop . The chocolate malts are super delicious . They also have really good homemade fries and a delicious Philly cheesesteak . Not to mention the hard ice cream and other delicious treats . It's a great place to take the family. Lots of great food, fun atmosphere, and delicious... More

Ambiance is very cool. Site seems to be kept original. Food is good, service is friendly. Worth a stop when coming through Goshen. Ice cream desserts are great.
