Waitress was very nice, but the food average. The place needs an upgrading and cleaning badly! The bench seats were so low that I was almost sitting with my chin on the table.

Typical dinner food. Diner was clean and had good service. I like to eat in one of those "Chrome Diners" once in awhile to bring back memories of my youth when it was treat to eat out. Food was ordinary, price was reasonable and atmosphere nostalgic. Better than a fast food chain.

Classic diner with great selection and very fresh, tasty food. Would eat there again! Try the cheese steak or the pancakes. Both were great.

The food was delicious. My sister, daughter, and I had the AUCE wings & pizza while my mom opted for fresh fish and asparagus. It was all delicious. They have a good blueberry pie. The staff was friendly and it's very clean. (I was surprised refills on soda are 50 cents each but it's clearly stated on the menu.)

The restaurant caught my eye in passing and I turned around to return. Good luck for me. Great breakfast, prepared just right and reasonably priced. Very friendly service. A neat clean eatery.

The diner was clean, and the food would be just what one would expect from a small town diner. Good food, fair price, and fast service.

It is a diner style restaurant. The food is always homemade, fresh and hot. The only salad bar in the Hancock area. We particularly like the pizza and hot wings with garlic combo. Friendly service. Worth a try.
