Not open for dinners. On the beaten path. Typical diner food with some homemade items. Everything is old school, but clean. No tea, could hilight and offer local products.

The place was a decent dinner, the pan cakes are huge and good. I liked it better than the Pancake house down the road. Prices were average and the staff was good.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. I had the tuna melt and it was just perfect. Fried cauliflower very good too. Inexpensive.

Great place to eat after being In the woods for a week! My burger and greasy fries were just what the MD ordered! Friendly service!

Had a very good breakfast here on August 30th. The Blueberry pancake was great. It was 9" in diameter . Talk about Adirondack Pancake !

Just what you would expect at a diner. My friend and I both ordered omelets. The food took quite a while but was quite good and hot when it arrived. Service was great.

Great staff and good food make this place a must stop for breakfast in Old Forge. In keeping with what seems to be an American tradition the portions are gigantic. Staff are super friendly, the service is quick and the prices are inexpensive. What else could you hope for in a diner?

We ordered take out two days for breakfast and the food was great. Breakfast sandwiches were good, bacon cooked perfectly and home fries were very tasty. Wait staff was very friendly and had no issue with a take out order. (So many places in town the wait staff gets annoyed with take out orders.) Will be eating here again next... More
