A lot of fun decor to look at. We loved all the cute salt and pepper shaker sets on the tables as well as the fly pics throughout the restaurant. They were super busy when we were there but we enjoyed just watching everyone. Loved the signs on their single stall restrooms..."Either" and "Or". Our food was good as well.

Very cool looking diner with hearty delicious food that is not your everyday "diner" food. Our breakfast was fantastic! The bread/toast was so good, we bought a loaf to take home with us!

Really cool little place . Food and drinks are great. I go at least once a month. Garlic potatoes with breakfast are great and a really amazing Bloody Mary. Menu is pretty different than the average place around.

We're always game for trying new restaurants. I had higher hopes for this restaurant after seeing it mentioned on Food Network a few years ago. The homemade jam (strawberry with vanilla) was delicious! Everything else was fairly underwhelming. Food needed more flavor, waitstaff not attentive -- didn't keep the coffee flowing, slow to check on us or get our bill.... More

I went here for lunch. It was packed-a good sign. However, there were several tables not yet bussed. I waited a few minutes, no one came. So I just sat down, and the one person apparently working at this task came over. The poor guy was working hard, so no complaints. The person bartending was also my waitress. She eventually... More

Unique offerings and the also the usual can be had. Smallish place and usually quite busy. Homemade jam served with breakfast and it was quite good.

We have never had a bad breakfast or lunch at the fly trap. We love this place. Breakfasts are generous and easily split; all the rumbles have been delicious. My husband loves the home fries for breakfast. Any of their specials have been wonderful. For a standard I really like the crab cake appetizer. They are the best! All the... More

In general, I recommend this place to anyone coming to visit the D or the surrounding areas because of the unique menu and choice to serve breakfast and lunch/dinner options at all times of day. Very... More

The food was great. My wife got the huevos rancheros which were really good. I got the brisket sandwich, definitely worth a repeat trip. The line was quick and service was great.
