Loved the yellow car and the inside decor. The menu choices were very good. Service was excellent and it was super clean. We enjoyed the sort of 1950's malt shop look

Stopped here for lunch and was surprised to see a woman singing for tips-Susan Carman- doing mostly oldies- was entertaining while we had burgers. Place was not busy so service was quick and friendly and food was delivered quickly. Nothing extradordinary but decent.

This is a popular diner - shakes, malts, ice cream and hamburgers and fries and regular dinners. There is always local entertainment while you are eating whom you can tip and buy their music - not required of course. It looks like a 50's diner - quite fun.

Themed restaurant with decor, menus and food choices coordinated. We were a party of 5, eating a late lunch. The menu had lots of variety, including milk shakes, malts, sodas, etc. It was reminiscent of a Happy Days type diner. There was live music that was nice, but didn't interfere with our conversation. The food was plentiful and delicious. I... More

I loved this place. The food was good, as was the service. Free entertainment on specified evenings by very talented folks. When we walked in I thought someone was playing a Patsy Kline CD and stepped around to see a live local performer singing on stage! Don't miss out

Loved this restaurant for the atmosphere, the food and the service. Looks like an old café from the 40's or 50's. Food selection was great and our meal was perfect!
