Exceptional comfort food menu. A little slow to wait on us but once she did we got her full attention. The malts are to die for and the burgers are the real thing with lots of flavor. Several had the beef pot pies and said the meat was extremely tender. The chicken pot pie was good too. My fries were... More

Good as always! This establishment is a quaint trip back to yesteryears. With poodle skirts & bobby socks, jukeboxes & old fashioned milkshakes & malts. Good American home made meals, generous proportions, reasonable prices, good atmosphere, friendly staff. Great for families, senior citizens or anyone looking for good eats!

Visiting friends wanted to take us out to dinner. Did we have any suggestions? As always, we recommend the neighborhood favorite - The 50's Grill. The guys had the hamburger steak and the gals had the BLTs. We were all members of the clean-plate club. I had their Key Lime Pie ready for us at home for the dessert. Very... More

Free parking. Greeted warmly by friendly hostess. Seated immediately. Decorated like a 50's malt shop. Attentive servers are dressed in "Bobby sock" style from that era. Malt shop menu items including daily specials, ice cream beverages and pies. I especially have enjoyed the bison burgers and the open face hot turkey sandwich! Pies, cookies, bread, soups, and chicken pot pies... More

If you prefer venison over ground beef, this is the place to have a geat venison burger with all the tirmmings and some good hot fries. Many other entrees are good too but this is my go to entree when there!!

Visiting the Diner is a must each year that we attend the Back to the 50's Car Show! They are always so welcoming no matter how many of us show up! Our waitress was outstanding! All our meals were great! Even with special requests! Number of us ordered Apple Pie - but it was later in the evening and they... More

We were looking for something different to try, and stumbled upon this place. The food was decent, but not great. The service was slow, but polite. Overall it was okay, but I probably wouldn't come back. I also tried their raspberry pie that is supposedly really good, and I was not impressed with that either.

Really good reviews by others here were spot on! Splurged for comfort food (meat loaf and natural turkey dinners) - generous portions and delicious! Topped off with malts (hadn't had one in years!) that were amazing! We'll have to go back some time for the burgers - they looked really good too! Plus a fun and nostalgic atmosphere made for...
