We had breakfast. The food came quickly, which explains why the medium eggs were very undercooked. The potato pancakes were hash browns with garlic salt. Server was miserable. Coffee refills, not so much.

We were heading to the university of Rochester and needed a quick stop for lunch. There was a little line that moved quickly. The host and waitress were very friendly. Nice option of breakfast or lunch menu. The food was good and the service fast.

I just moved to the area and recently just discovered this diner. The first time I went in they had 7 booths open and many bar stools. I asked to sit in a booth because of back issues that I have occurred while my time in the military. The kind waitresses said the only one I am allowed to sit... More

Went out for breakfast with a couple of friends, not a special occasion, just to get together. We agreed to meet here at a certain time. They arrived first, diner was nearly empty. Waitress offered to seat them, "Two...?" "No," they said, "we're expecting one more..." The waitress stated restaurant policy was to seat diners only when the entire party... More

I like Johnny B's dinner. The menu is varied and I eaten there for breakfast & lunch. However, I am a stickler for "Old Diner" food and a great diner should have homemade corned beef hash, they don't. Also, the home fries need an update. They need to experiment a bit with this basic. Otherwise, you will not be disappointed... More

When you walk into the diner it's like walking straight into history. The cable car is still in tact and the turquoise booths and pink blinds adds lots of character! The coffee was a little weak for me but the service was good and the food was pretty good as well. NOTE: if you order onions in your potatoes, make... More

This is our weekend go-to spot for a late breakfast, feasting on Apple-cinnamon or blueberry pancakes, with the occasional Belgian waffle, but always with a side of sausage because you can get turkey or regular. The staff is like family and we share stories and it really is a place that feels like home any day of the week.

The food is great diner food. The atmosphere is classic diner... The staff is friendly... Coffee and food come quickly... Don't let the line out the door scare you. There are probably seats at the bar available; and if you want a booth, the wait is never too long...
