Took a weekend drive to Ipswich and decided to have breakfast at the Agawam dinner. Eggs over easy with hash was delectable. Coffee was much better than expected for e diner. Service at the counter was great. It's a small space and a line quickly formed after we were seated, but quick service means quick turnover. Definitely has a local... More

This place is delicious! Everything on the menu is homemade and so good. Their turkey club is a real show stopper, and their french fries are beyond fantastic. The place itself is really small, which makes the atmosphere so welcoming and charming. The prices can't be beat, and the wait staff is extremely nice. Whether you want to go for... More

We took some friends out for some sightseeing and stopped here for lunch. They had never dined at a New England diner before and it was so much fun. We ordered sandwiches and breakfast items and all were made to perfection. Deserts were also a hit. We were packed like sardines but that did not detract from the diner experience.... More

I used to come here often when I lived in Newburyport and the food was consistently good. The service was great and the customers were friendly at the counter. There was a beautiful waitress that had the most amazing blue eyes. That was 25 years ago. I moved away from the area and stopped going. Today I was in the... More

average food -- not expensive -- not that good !!! Anyone can make a burger, coffee from the OLD fashion urn, cramped, a bit shabby -- but they have a following....but don't be a follower!

Was greeted prompt;y but limited seating & had to wait. Booth was comfortable, service was prompt & friendly, My wife's cheeseburger was done well & she enjoyed. My extra... More

With so much incredible competition for lunch cafes. It's my opinion not to have it here. However they serve breakfast all day...I'm sure it decent. CASH only operation. Fish had to be frozen previously, it was flavor less and dried out. Cole Slaw is bought prepared and just awful. Everything else was okay. Beauty of an old relic too bad... More

Hadn't been here for several (7-8) years. Decided to revisit yesterday and my breakfast was excellent. The food was awesome, the waitresses are very pleasant and this setting still Rings true to the diner experience of years gone by. I will be back soon

Thank J I
