My husband and I go here pretty often, and we are never disappointed with their food. Mostly familiar comfort food, and who wouldn't want that?! All looks and tastes fresh and homemade, never canned or frozen. Always a huge serving! I have never finished a meal there! Go for the food and the very friendly waitstaff! You won't be disappointed!

We were a group of 9 adults and two children who wished to be seated together and the restaurant created a table for us with a smile. The food we all ordered was standard diner fare but was well prepared and offered generous portions. One burger was not prepared as ordered but it was replaced when the problem was brought... More

My family and I had breakfast here on our last day in Poughkeepsie after my son's graduation. This restaurant is a short walk from Vassar college. They have an extensive menu with generous portions. A custom to having hash browns (I live in the Midwest) I found their "American fries" similar and delicious. Only one thing missing from the menu... More

Haven't been here in a few years. We were dealing with family stuff in the area and wanted a diner. We went here 4 times over the course of 2 weeks. I like real diners and this is a real diner. I hate places that call themselves diners and really aren't once you look at the menu. They have side... More

We ate at this diner three times during our stay nearby. It was amazing to look at all the items on the menu. What was even more amazing was to order a variety of items at our table and have them all come out hot, good tasting, and reasonably priced. The wait staff did a very good job. Even though... More

I came here twice in a span of 2 days while staying at a local hotel nearby. Since I'm from Jersey, diners are kind of our thing. I will say, this diner was cozy and had a nice clean and easy to read menu. (Even had Taylor Ham!) First time, came here for dinner and I ordered a coffee and... More

They raised the prices..My favorite omelette now almost cost $10. Add coffee, tax and you are over $12. I usually tip 25 to 30% under $10 because the service is usually very good here but now I guess I should only tip 15% or go to another restaurant...The new guy thats at the register sometimes isn't very friendly sometimes..You can...

6 of us went there for lunch and we all had specials. Everyone's soup was very good although the matza ball soup was very salty. Seafood bisque was delicious. Portions are a decent size and a side was included as was the soup. Service was very good this time.
