Granted, I can be a critical s.o.b. at times and I guess even somewhat persnickety but being a lifetime senior Cecil County resident I've picked up on a few things. When you sit down for a meal put your hat on. Allow for 3-5 ' to be seated. Allow another 3-5' to be "greeted" with a shallow "what'll it be... More

This time we were not as please with our meal. They were out of several items and the food and service seemed to be not up to... More

Mother and son ate breakfast there. We ate in the Marilyn Monroe Room. All walls covered in her photos. 6 pieces of perfectly done bacon. Never expected more then 3. Eggs over medium, perfect. Coffee served in Thermos. Really love that.

Different? Yes, the day we were here (Sunday, 8/7) one of the breakfast specials was a Cheesesteak Omelet. It was an omelet filled with chopped steak, cheese, green pepper, onions. Different and delicious. This was our first visit here. We were seated in the "Marilyn Room". All walls were filled with pics of Marilyn Monroe. Different. One of our party... More

We stop in here about once very other month or so. The hostess / cashier has always been very friendly and always comments on our blue eyed grandson. The food and service has always been consistently good.

Went looking for someplace to go on New Year's Day and happened into the Elkton Diner. The restaurant was warm, our waitress was very friendly, and the food was surprisingly good and reasonably priced. Plus, the salad bar was fresh and everything was tasty. On a regular day, this wouldn't have been our first choice, but it'll be high on... More

My wife and I had stopped here once before for breakfast. It was a bad experience, but I believe in giving every restaurant a second chance. The hostess was talking on the phone and acted like she was doing us a big favor by seating us. I ordered the turkey and it came out cold/bland. One bite was enough. I... More
