Nice little dinner type place at we just ate at. The grilled cheese was good and they offer a veggie burger. Friendly and close to the campsite.

I've driven by before because of location but the food was decent. Service was great. A little more than expected although still worth it.

We were in town for a wedding and ate here like 3 times. It's like I said in the title, a hometown Denny's with nicer wait staff. Breakfast was great, we had lunch another day and good again. Everybody loves the Monte Cristo, I got a club and the bread was perfectly lightly toasted and not smothered in butter.

We wanted a place to eat. close to the ferry to Vermont. Gus's more than sufficed. My husband loves hot dogs and the Reds Special had him smiling. Friendly wait staff, cute 50s feel and wide selection of diner food. We also found the prices to be very reasonable.

It's a nice hot breakfast with strong coffee to get us going in the morning. It's exactly what you're looking for in a diner, nothing more or nothing less. People there were working hard to get the job done. It was a good quick stop on the road.

We stopped at Gus's for such. This was a must visit on our visit to Plattsburgh. Of course we chose Breakfast. We both had omelets (meat and everything). Both were excellent. The home fries were to die for and who can resist rye toast... The coffee was excellent also. All the fixings for a perfect meal. The service was excellent... More

I did not eat at the hotel so I stopped here to have breakfast. Excellent, yes excellent choice. The prices are reasonable, breakfast is all day and they have lunch and dinner. I got two eggs hash toast and coffee. I will definitely be back here again the people that read my reviews know I like a good breakfast place.... More
