We stopped in for breakfast prior to going into Baltimore. It was excellent. Eggs were perfectly cooked and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Since we were there on Fathers Day we had to have dessert with breakfast. Great idea!!!! The owners wife makes truly the most delicious, fresh, huge pieces of cake you have ever had!!!!!! So now we will... More

In the USA, I haunt diners. I love them, and the best of them offer a great experience. But this one was very ordinary. Had breakfast here - a standard two eggs medium over, sausage patties and hash browns. The food was good; in fact, their sausage patties were excellent, but the meal was unaccompanied by the usual things which... More

I normally stop here on trips between Philadelphia and Virginia and am very satisfied. This was a bizarre stop though - the food was good, but the service was off. Things like that they were out of straws and when other diners left, no one cleared their places, so there were tables with dirty plates on them. Also, the people... More

Typically the breakfast here is pretty decent. But I wouldn't know after today's visit. It's not a good sign when you walk into a diner (or any restaurant for that matter), and as soon as you sit down, a man who apparently had been waiting for a long time for his food simply and politely asked the waitress if his...

Food OK, as always. Two servers I haven't seen there before. I got the one who liked to stare across the room at my empty beverage glass. Kitchen apparently backed up as well...which is unusual here.

I was traveling here from out of state for business, I was a little reluctant of eating here but the locals really like it so I gave it a try. I could see lots of people visiting in the restaurant. The food was good, they have some different combinations fo food you dont normally see in a comfort food restaurant.... More

service was a little slow but not bad. I had never thought of combining eggs and fish but they offer 3 different types of fish and the catfish was amazing! I was worried at first that it would just be some breaded processed fish but the server asked if I wanted it breaded or broiled and I asked for the... More

I found the prices at this old style diner to be a bit high for the crummy area of Jessup it is located in (stones throw from the state penitentiary). The food was good though and our server keep up with my coffee addiction.
