We were tired after a long drive and some drama involved with the trip, so diner food (translate comfort food) seemed ideal, and it was less than a mile from our hotel. The green salad was amazingly fresh. My friend ordered the salisbury steak, which was enough for three meals, and she stated was delicious, especially with the wonderful caramelized... More

The desserts looked promising but were so-so. The steak sandwich was tough. Service was slow yet impatient. It was ok I guess. Wouldn't go again tho.

I've been a fan of Paradise Diner for so many years! Whenever I want to be sure that I'll get a good meal for my money I head for this diner. The food is always plentiful, good value, fresh and delicious. The price is right. You cant go wrong. I'm getting hungry just thinking about their Rubin Sandwich plate!

Three layer of Guacamole, Black been and Sour ream with wanton chip was Yummy! Yummy! Grilled sole fish was juicy and tender. It was so delicious. Meal size Greek salad with large grilled shrimp was Fantastic! We couldn’t stop eating until plate was completely clean. On top of that, Service was outstanding. We strongly recommend dinning at the Paradise.

I came here this past week with my fiancee and we were pleased with this place overall. The service was good and the food was tasty as well, as one would expect from a diner. My fiancee had the nutella crepe and I had eggs benedict, both of which were pretty good and the portions were generous. It's a solid... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. My main course was grouper which was very good and my wife's was a pork chop which was also very good. However, the accompanying vegetables and pea soup were mediocre at best. Apple pie was also quite good. Service was very good and price was reasonable.

I've been coming to this place for years and it's always been wonderful. The staff is very attentive and believes in service with a smile. The waffles are wonderful, the sandwiches are scrumptious, and the desserts are delectable. Don't be intimidated by the size of the menu and rest assured that they make every dish very well.

The Corned beef and Cabbage dinner was excellent! The staff was friendly and the place has a very comfortable atmosphere.

Visited Paradis Diner a month ago. The Chef suggested some Indian food as a special. We loved every minute of our evening. From the friendly service to the wonderful and authentic food. A must visit in the area
