5 course meal is more than you can handle in this homestyle diner. We had stuffed filet of sole which was enough for 2 people. The filet tips with mushrooms and onions was cooked to temperature and fork tender. Only complaint was too many onions and not enough shrooms. Matzoh ball soup was restaurant broth but the ball was dense... More

The place is ok, the food is ok, the service is ok. You will not be displeased. We stopped there because of the convenient location, and may or may not eat there again.

Although I live in the local area, and should support local business, but the food can really use some improvement, the sausage was too salty, the coffee was watery, and the waffle was doughy...

This place is the quintessential Greek Diner. While there is nothing great , there is so much to choose from, it's a hoot.
