I was horrible disappointed to get eggs that looked this from an “old school” diner. Appears to be lazy cooking to me.

Home-style cooking, sweet servers, hands-on owners, and very reasonable prices make Old 56 a very popular place to go, especially on weekends. We are regulars here and love the food as well as the atmosphere!

Good place for breakfast and not pricey. Comes out hot. Lunches are "home cooked" variety. The pies are very good. They have a varied menu.

The food was good, the service was great, the music was horrible. I expected such a classic diner would have 50s music, but instead they had on really bad country music. Not classic country, the new modern stuff. It was difficult to enjoy my meal...More
