Service was great! The menu is a mini-novel. The selection was unbelievable and the food was delicious. There's something for everyone. Apparently the line gets long sometimes, but we went at 7 PM and there was no line. Nothing bad to say at all about this place except they don't take AMEX.

This place is well known for its pancakes and they are true to their word. Its pretty busy so you should prepare for a bit of a wait but nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to breakfast on the weekend. Lots to choice on menu if you are not a pancake fan Well worth a visit

There's a just like home feeling. The setting is warm and friendly, spacing is just right not to close yet close enough to still fell like a family. The food is great and the prices will allow any family on a budget to have a meal out without breaking the bank.

Compared to other Diners this place is a good one if want to grab a quick food. Of course it is not a fine dining place but the food good. The place is crowded and the service can be a bit slow.

Food is awesome and worth the wait but what's really frustrating is the line to get in. It took us almost 45 minutes to get in. The food was totally worth the wait but it's still a long frustrating wait. Great place for pancakes. We tried the Guy Fieri pancake but that was a bit of an overdo. The other... More

We made our way to the Brownstone Diner for breakfast. I understand we were a party of 6 on a Sunday morning, but we were 3 on the list. After waiting at least 30 minutes we were seated. We ordered drinks and our meal at the same time. It seemed to take a long time for the food to arrive.... More

Everytime my family has an event here it's a success. The staff is professional and always helpful in all matters. The seating is always arranged to perfection. The food is delicious and parking is available.

It's a diner. Food is good and service is decent, usually...but also had mediocre food and bad service at times. Maybe if I liked pancakes more I would be a bigger fan.

Possibly the most delicious pancakes I have ever eaten. I had the peanut butter and chocolate chip pancakes with banana, caramel sauce, and whipped cream - truly decadent. The caramel sauce was so good, I didn't use syrup.
